VlQW partly in lsectionand partly in eleva erly feeding t-hesaine' to the runway of the roclta'blei feed member? "Referring inoi"e particularly to Figures t lTigure ll is an enlarged fragmentary 1,2; 6 andjiifA is the anvil die provided on its upper t ace with arecess o, and Bis a die, substantially centrally thereof;

,4 ing men'iber or needle extending up- ,wai'dly from the recessed face of the anvil Said anvil die is shown as having 'an enlarged has-e a and a dependingstem a saidjdie, heingnnposed on 'ahorizontal member '0' of anjnp'right head or goose neck O, andsaid die beingiretained' fixedly. in place by the stem (4? thereof being attached in a suitable i'iiilill-Ql' tq tlle her or needle B may be of-a desired form in cross section, such as cylindrical, triangular; e'tc.',and the n-wend of said upstanding needle is pointed at Z with a view to tacilitating theoperation ot pie'rcing the fabric, or other n t 111 01: one orinore layers or plies of fabric a v 1 l liehead C s imposed upon, and attached fixedly to, the upper part of a pedestal C bywhich the several working mechanisms are supported 7 at a height convenient for the worh ottlieop'eratorstationed at the maaterial, indicated'at X, as consist-'- member 0. The piercing HIBITk" chine. Said head C is provided intermediate its ends with upstanding arms 0 and at its otherwise free overhanging end with a sleeve 0 Extending between the arms 0 is an operating device or member D herein shown as an elongated curved lever verti cally positioned with reference to the pedestal C and head C, with the upper part of said curved lever in a spaced and elevated relation to the sleeve 0 and with-- the lower part of the curved lever terminating close to the floor on which the machine" is erected. Said lower end of the curved lever is provid'e-d with a pressure plate (Z onwh'ich the foot of the operator is adapted to be placed for the purpose of applying pressure to the lever and to impart movement thereto. The lever is mounted in the arms 0 by a cross pin or bolt (5 passing through said lever ata point some distance from the upper end portion thereof, whereby the lever is hung for the major part of the weight to lie below the ful'eurm so that the lever returns by gravity to a normal position convenient to access by the operator.

E is a plunger positioned vertically over and in alineinent with, the anvil die, said plunger being fitted for slidable movement within the guides 0 (see Figure 2) and being operable by direct connections with the upper end portion of the operating treadle lever D said connection being shown as a link 6, the end portions of which are connected pivotally at e to the upperend of lever D and the upper end of plunger Said plunger is hollow or of tubular formation, and the lower part of said plunger is reduced and threaded to produce a tubular threaded tenon e on which tenon is screwed a collar E and a plunger die F. Said plunger die is shown as comprising a body member of hollow formation to produce a longitudinal passage fthe upper part of which is enlarged in diameter and female threaded to adapt said die body for threaded connection with the tenon e? of the plunger whereby the die F is adapted for ready attachment to, and detachment from, the plunger. Said die F is provided in its lower face with a recess 7" fashioned to accommodate the flange 7 of an eyelet Y adapted to be positioned in telescoping relation to the piercing member or needle B, see

Figures 6 and 7.

G is a retaining member fitted slidably within the tubular plunger so as to partake of the vertical travel thereof, and to be capable also of a limited play or movement independently of the movement of the plunger; whereby the retaining member may be said to operate in a. manner so as to warrant reference thereto as a disappearing punchi. The member Gis reduced in diameter for apart of'its length so as to produce a finger g and a shoulder g, and said member G is backed by a spring G encased within the tubular plunger and in contact nor mally with the upper end portion of member G, see Figure 2, whereby said spring acts to depress the member G within the tubular plunger for the shoulder g to rest upon the body member f ofthe plunger die and for the lower portion of finger g to be exposed normally below the recessed face f of said plunger die. 7

H is a rockable feeder for the eyelets and If a magazine carried by said feeder for movement therewith. The rockable feeder comprises a longitudinal curved body one face 72, of which is continuously curved in an arc of a desired radius, said arcuate face being provided with an eyelet runway It shown in Figure 5 as consisting of adjacent channels of different widths and in cornmunicationone with the other, whereby the bodies of the eyelets will be received partly withinthe narrower channel whereas the flanged portions of said eyelets will occupy the wider channel in a manner to preclude the eyelets from dropping out of the runway while at the same time permitting said eyelets to run or slide freely within the runway. Said feeder is vertically positioned with respect to the dies A F for the lower delivery end of the feeder to be in operative relation to said dies and to be movable relatively thereto whereby the feeder is operable to introduce the lowermost eyelet confined within the runway into a position intermediate the lower anvil die and the plunger die when thelatter die is in an elevated position, see Figure 2. The rockable feeder is in a transverse plane inclined to the vertical plane of the head C, as shown in Figures 1 and 5, and said feeder is fulcrumed intermediate its ends by a horizontal bolt or spindle J which is supported by a bracket K of the head or goose neck C. Said bracket is shown in Figure 10 as comprising a casting in the form of a hub Z with an attaching lug 7a and a depending lug 1 said hub being axially pierced tor the accommodation of the belt or spindle J and said hub being provided with a notch Z pr senting spaced shoulders Z Z acting as abutments for a stop pin L on the rockable feeder H for arresting the pivotal. move ment of said feeder in either direction. see Figures 5 and 10. The head. 0 is provided adjacent the sleeve 0 with a lug m extending laterally from the head. and with this lug m co-operates the lug 7c of the bracket so that a bolt m will pass. through the head-lug m and the bracket-lug for etfectmg the rigid attachment of the bracket K to head C, said bracket standing at a de-.;

sired angle to the vertical plane of the head Lsee Figure 5,. and said bracket K being shiftable with the bolt m as its eXis of movement so that the angular relationof feederwith the plunger, I employ roller N, see Figures 1 and 2, said canr said cam link being pivoted at is shown as-having a swell i m-t Qf'the rockable the bracket to the head may be changed as found desirable, and, accordingly, provision is made for shifting the angular relation of, 7

for directly supporting the magazine'I': The the eyelets :opens I through 1 runway 71/- for the arcuate face'hof-said feeder and'entends clear down to a notchn provided in the deliveryiface of said narrow end portion of said feeder, see Figure 9. Co-operating with thenotched delivery end nof the feeder is an escapement M,- shown in Figure 9% a dog with a beveled nose a,

said dog being positioned onl-one side of they feederH and pivoted thereto at nF, whereby the dog is mo inted'onthe feeder for move ment therewith relatively to the upsetting dies andis capable, also, of alimited independent movement underthe impulse of a spring n indicated by dotted lines in Figure 9. Said spring acts on the dog tothrow the nose n thereoflinto contact with that eyelet which occupies the notched delivery end in of the feeder, as a result of which eyelet of the series, the notched delivery end of the feeder andlthus'precludes said eyelet from dropping out of thefeeder, but when 'saidforemost eyelet the dog retains the end of eyelets within is engaged'by. the finger g of the retaining plunger G and the feeder is mechanically shifted away from position between dies A, F, then the dog for the eyelet to remain in plunger finger feeder; When the eyelet is freed, the same slides by gravity along the finger g and drops into place over the piercing member or needle 13 depicted in Figure 6. a c r 7 Movement is imparted ,to the rockablc feeder by manner to synchronize the action of the and, to. this end, a cam link and a camidriven link serving the additional function of im-. partingmovement to a rocking arm 0 by which rotative step movement is given tothe magazine, as will presently appear. The canr'link is; vertically positioned adjacent the sleeve of head C, the lower end of '0 to. thecol- Said link N lar E fast on the plunger E.

which contacts the roller N mounted to turn freely on a pin 0? of a lug otforming feeder H, see Figure imparting pivotalmovement for shifting the the wider. or eX- cam link N pathof theretaining plunger G. the rockable flanges p on which is fitted a M is yield- .able to the pull of the eyelet in a manner position onthe during the recesssion of the flanged end of the feeders base is recessed at Q on the inner face thereof, 7 and provided with a ,ripheral flange g, the inner surface of'whic'h and upon the material X, as

the travel of the plunger E in a or cam 0, with 2, whereby on the downstroke-of the plunger the link, N is drawn downwardly thereby causing cam 0" to ride on theroller N and thus the feeder is mechan cally actuated by delivery end portion of saidfeeder out of the path of the plunger. Obviously, the plunger on its upstroke actuates the cam link to withdraw'its cam or swell from the roller ,N", permitting the feeder to return byjgra ity to normal position wherein the notched delivery end is n a position ntermediate the stationaryanv-il die, and the movable plunger die,

but the, rocking movement of the feeder is arrested positively within certain limits by the stop L operating within the notch Zof the fixed bracket K so as to coact with the shoulders Z, P.

The throw or movement in one direction of the rockable feeder H under the pressure of the cam link is cushioned by a buffer shown in Figure 2 as a coiled spring P, one end" ofwhich is seated in contact with the lug Z0 of the fixed bracket K, whereas the other end of the spring isfin contact with a shoulder h" of the rockable feeder H, see

Figure 2, said shoulder h beingmovable with said feeder in a manner to compress the spring P whenthe feeder is shifted by the riding upon the roller N andsard spring Poo-operating wlth the shoal der h for returning the feeder promptly to a" positionytoideliver thenexteyelet in the The upper end portion of base member being fixedly attached to said Said 1nag'aaine projecting peisformedwith an annular groove or channel 9 extending in a plane intermediate the re cess g and the edge-of the peripheral flange ,see Figure 4c. The magazine base is pro vided with a bearing 1 for a stub shaft Q, the latter-being adapted to receive a collar 7 r of a table T and the end portion of said stub shaft being-threaded for the reception ofanutr a v Themagazine I is a shell of substantially cylindricalform, open at one end andpartly closed atthe other end by a head i in which is provided an opening for the introduction of-the eyelcts. "Tl1e inner edge the magazine shell is fitted snugly within the flange g of the stationary base member I so that the magazine shell is free-to rotate within the aeripheral flange, and this free edge of'the magazine shell is provided with and 11. Said inner notched edge of the rotative magazine shell isso related to the peripheral flange 9 of the base member I that said edge is in a plane adjacent the annular groove Q2 of the flange, and these notches s' of the shell are adapted to receive the tubular bodies of the eyelets whereas the groove 9 accommodates the flanged rims of said eyelets, as shown in Figures and 11, whereby the eyelets are positioned by the shell to enter the runway h of the feeder. The magazine shell is rotatable with the stub shaft- Q, and one means for rigidly connecting said shell to the shaft 1 have shown a sleeve S fitted on the shaft and provided with a fork s that is fixedly attached to the inside of the shell, whereby the nut r is adapted to retain the sleeve S and the shell I in fixed relation to the stub shaft.

The rotatable table T is in the form of a disk which is provided with a collar 1" by which the disk is made fast with the stub shaft. This table is of such dimensions as to substantially fill the recess 9 of the magazine base member 1, the exposed face of the table being in the plane of the annular groove 9" and the face of the table being in opposing relation to the notched edge a of the rotatable shell and spaced relatively thereto so that the interval or space between the face of the table and the notched edge of the shell is equal substantially to the thickness of the flange y of the eyelets. The tablethus cooperates with the shell in the assemblage of the eyelets for effecting the feed of said eyelets in successive order from the magazine to the runway of the feeder, and to attain this successive feed the table and the magazine are operated by a rotative step movement by the following mechanism :-A ratchet U is pinned at u! to a protruding end of the stub shaft Q, and with the ratchet engages the nose of a pawl U pivoted atu to a slide V, said pawl being acua-ted by a spring a, see Figure 3. Said slide is fitted in a guideway as provided in the base member I, and to one end of the slide is pivoted a link o, the other end of which link is pivoted to an end portion of the rocker arm O, see Figures 1, 2 and 3. Said arm 0 is mounted looselv on the bolt or pin J and connected as described with the cam link N, whereby the movement of the cam link imparts movement to the rocker arm 0, slide V and pawl U so as to turn the ratchet U and thereby impart the required rotative step movement to the magazine and the table from the stub shaft Q.

It will be noted that the magazine and its co-operating parts are carried by' the rockable feeder H and that the rotative mote ment is communicated to the magazine and the table by the cam link N which is actuated by the travel of the plunger E operatet di rectly by the lever member D. The eyelets contained within the magazine are thus agitated or shaken by the movement of said magazine with the rockable feeder, so that the notched edge of the magazine and the table will coact in the proper assemblage of the eyelets within the notches s and for the flanges of said eyelets to occupy the channel Q2, and in contact with the surface of the table T, whereby the step feed given to the magazine will act to feed said eyelets successively into the runway 7b of the feeder, the said runway at the top end of the feeder being in the required relation to the groove 9/ of the stationary base member I for the eyelets to pass from the table and the magazine shell directly into said runway, see Figure el.

The operation will be understood from the foregoing description; but may be summarized as follows: The eyelets are poured or dumped into the hopper through the opening 1', and the operator places thematerial X over the needle and presses the material downwardly for the needle to pierce said material. The runway of the oscillatory feeder having been filled with eyelets, the delivery end of the feeder is presented to the space between the plunger die and the anvil dye as in Figure 2, with the retaining finger 9 directly above the lowermost eyelet in the runway of the feeder. By applying pressure to the treadle lever, the several parts are set into motion. As the plunger E begins itsdownward travel the retaining finger moves with said plunger toward the needle so as to enter the eyelet before the cam 0 acts on the roller N, and thus the finger detains the eyelet momentarily over the needle and in vertical alinement there with at the period of contact of the cam 0 with the roller, the result of which is to move the feeder and cause its delivery end to be withdrawn from the path of the plunger, at which time the eyelet is detained by the finger, as mentioned, and the escape ment M moves with the feeder so as to be withdrawn from that eyelet which is detained by the finger, whereupon the escapement under the. action of spring a snaps back into the path of the next eyelet so as to preclud the free escape of the eyelets from the runway on the movement of the feeder caused by the action of the cam. The feeder is moved a limited distance sufficient for withdrawal of its delivery end from the path of the plunger die, and as the plunger die and the retaining finger continue to move downward, the eyelet fitted on the finger drops over the needle, being directed by the finger, and said eyelet being retained against displacement relatively to the needle by the contact of the finger y with said needle, see Figure 6. The plunger die completes its downward stroke to force the eyelet through the material and into shaft Q, magazine I, and table feed the eyelets one at atime.

With the eyelets deposited indiscriminately within" thefmaga'zine, it. is important to not only feed the eyelets successively tothe runway, butto position the eyelets for tertheruim'ay in a manner-to ping out of the runway as they slide therein.
