ANTON FEYK, OF BOHEKIA, AND PAUL F. DUSHA, OE NEW YORK, N. Y., ,ASSIGNORS, BY MESNE ASSIGNMENTS, TO PARAGON BUTTON CORR, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A

CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.

SLICING MACHINE.

Application filed September 18, 1924. Serial No. 738,489.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, ANTON FEYK and PAUL F. DUSHA, both citizens of the United States and residents, respectively, of B- 'hemia, in the county of Suffolk and State of NewYork, and of the city of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved. Slicing Machine, of which the following 1s a full, clear, and exact description. I The present invention relatesv to new and useful improvements in the manufacture of so-called pearl buttons and it pertains more particularly to a machine for slicing blanks. It it one of the primary objects of the invention to construct a machine which will cut stri s of pearl shell commonly known as "b'lanks into a plurality of button blanks. It is another object of the invention to rovide a machine which will out these lanks into a plurality of button blanks, the faces of which will be parallel and at right angles totheside edges thereof.

It is a further object of the invention to 95 rovide means .for' positively holding the blanks before they are cut into button blanks and subse uently holding thebutton blanks individual y after the have been cut.

With the above an other objects in view, reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a view in elevation, partly in section, of a portion of a machine constructed in accordance with the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 2 -2 of Fig. 1.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, the machine comprises a saw A and a mechanism B for feeding the articles to be out which are in the form of pearl shell blanks, to the saw. The saw comprises a shaft 5 having a head 6, a plurality of saw blades 7 and a nut 8 secured to the shaft 5 and securing the saw blades thereon. The saw blades are arranged in spaced relation and are maintained in such spaced relation by means of washers or the like 9. By varying the thickness of the washers, the distance be-- tween the saw blades may be varied to cut button blanks of various thickness. 7 The feeding device B com rises a shaftlO, the outer end of which is re need and screwthreaded as at 11, for the reception'of a nut" 12. Mounted upon this shaft there is a collar 13 and carried by the collar 13 there is a cam member 14 secured to said collar 13 by means of a set screw or the like, 15-.

The reference numeral 16 designates a disk-like member having a peripheral flange 17 and an inner flange 18. Spaced with respect to the inner ange 18, the disk-like member 16 is provided with a bearing "ortion 19 which is adapted to receive the s aft 10. The reference numeral 20 designates a key by means of which the disk-like member 16 is keyed to the shaft 10 and the reference numeral 21 designates a cap plate adapted to engage the outer face of the disk-like member 16 to hold thesame in position upon the shaft against the shoulder 22 formed 1 on said shaft. when the disk-like member 16 is positioned upon the shaft, the cam 14 heretofore mentioned, occupies a position in the space between the inner flange 18 and the bearing 19. Slidably mounted in the flanges 17 and 18, there are a plurality of radially disposed arms 23, and surrounding each of said arms there is acoil spring 24. The outer edge of It is to be understood that p each of the coil springs 24 engages the under a face of the flange 17 while the inner end of each of the coil springs engages a washer or the like, 26, carried by its respective arm By this construction the arms 23 are at all times under ,ressure to move them inwardly of the diskike memberT16. under the influence of their respective springs 24.

The inner end of each arm at all times engages the cam member 14, and bythis means as the arms rotate around the cam, it being understood that the disk-like member 16 is driven in a rotary direction through the medium of the shaft 10 and'the key 20, said armswill be moved outwardl or laterally of the disk-like member 16 w en their inner ends reach the'high portion of the cam Mounted uponthe outer of each of the arms 23, there is a head member 30, and

said head member 30 carries a right-angular portion31- arranged inthe same plane. with the disk-like member 16. Mounted adjacent each of these arms on the periphery of the disk-like member and in a position underlying the ri'ght-angular extension of its respective arm, there is a blank 32, and each 'ofthese blanks 32 has a \I-shaped seat 33,

the purpose of which will be hereinafter de scribed. As more clearly .shownin Fig. 2, the

heads 30 are slotted as designated by the reference numeral 34, in order that the saw.

- heads to correspond with the change in blades7 of the saw 8 may pass therein.

The reference numeral designates a plate removably secured to the disk-like member 16 in any desired manner and said platecarries a plurality of radially-adjustable stops 36. The stops are adjustably secured to the plate 35 by set/screws 37, and have a rightangula'r extension 38 which overlies the peripheral edge of the plate 35 and projects in a direction toward the heads 30. It is to be understood that there is one of these stops for each head 30.

The device operates'in the following manner:

The blanks are inserted into the l-shaped seats of the heads 30 at the left in Fig. 1, and in this position the inner ends of the arms 23 are in engagement with the high portion of the cam. As the disk-like member 16 is rotated, these blanks will maintain their position in the V-shaped seats until they pass over the top in Fig. 1, when the arms 23 pass to the lower portion of the cams 14 under the influence of their respeo tive springs and cause a gripping of the blanks between the right-angular extensions 31 of the heads 30 and their respective blocks 32.

. As the disk-like member 16 continues to rotate the blanks. are presented to the saw blades 7 which serve to out each of the blanks into a plurality of button blanks, each of which is held by the right-angular extension 31 until the inner ends of the arms again engage the high portion of the cam which is approximately at the bottom in Fig. 1,

when the heads 40 are forced outwardly and release the "button blanks which fall to a suitable receptacle not shown.

It is obvious that by changing the' space between the saw blades and changing the the saw, blanks may be cut into button blanks of'varying thickness. It is also obvious that as the blanks are placed within the machine before they arepresented to the saw, their inner ends are adapted to engage with the right-angular ends of the stops 36 adjacent the heads in which the blanks are placed,

and this assures the proper positioning of each blank in the machine in order that the maximum number of button blanks may be cut therefrom, since the length of the blanks 7 often varies.

From the foregoing it is apparent that all of the objects of the present invention have been accomplished, and, further, it should beunderstood that numerous modifications of structure might readily be resorted to without in the least departing from the scope of the claim. j

What is claimed is': l i I A slicing machine, including a rotary circular support, a. plurality of parallel saws, fixed jaws on the edge of the support, movable jaws projecting beyond the edge ofthe support, both of said sets of jaws-havin saw receiving slots therein, and said sets 0 jaws each adapted to receive and clamp a blank during the cuttin to move through t e slots in he jaws, and an adjustable stop adjacent eac pair of jaws limiting the lateral movement of a, blank between the jaws, said stops adjustably mounted radially of the support.
