INVENTOR SAMUEL WALLACH ATTORIQEYS S. WALLACH BEAD LOOM Filed May 3, 1935 June 2, 1936.

7 Claims. (01. 139-34) The invention relates to. a bead loom which formly spacing the warp threads of the loom. is adapted to be used to hold a plurality of threads Any means, however, is contemplated for providin spaced parallel relation so that beads may be ing spaced grooves and such a groove means woven by hand thereupon to form beaded belts need not necessarily be carried by the wire formand other ornamental beaded articles.

These roll supportthose who make beaded articles by hand.

It should be be pos t e o e wire prior to its being bent noted, however, that the rolls are not intended to to into rectangular form, if desired. It is only imfu l h any such bracing or spacing means, alp that the 60115 be Placed p the Wire though they would serve this function if it were prior to the abutting ends of the wire being seded, cured together. The coilsrprovide a plurality of In use a plurality of threads are secured to one substantially equally spaced grooves for uniroll and preferably each thread is positioned in 55 one oi. the grooves formed by the coil carried upon the end I! of the rectangular loop. These coils form grooves which position the threads in spaced parallel relation and retain them in this relation. The other ends of the threads are secured to the other roll l8 and are adapted to be rolled up thereupon as the beading progresses. It is obvious from the description and drawing that as the beaded article being made upon the loom becomes longer than the space between the .ends of the frame l2, the rolls are rotated so that additional thread is unrolled from one roll and the beaded article is rolled upon the other roll. The wing nuts 20 are then tightened to hold the rolls against rotation and themaking of the beaded article may then continue.

A new and novel method of tightening the spaced threads is obtained by the bead loom described above. This method involves the pressing together of the ends I2 of the frame l3 prior to anchoring or tightening the second roll against rotation, rotating the untightened roll [8 until the threads are taut and then tightening or anchoring the roller against rotation. Now when the frame is released and springs back to its normal position, the threads are pulled tight and no sag or bow will appear in any of the threads. These tightly pulled threads, without any sag or are, are easier to weave the beads upon than threads which sag even slightly relatively to the other threads. Any frame which provides sufficient resiliency to obtain this method of obtaining tightly pulled threads or any frame having means separate from the frame is contemplated herein.

Although certain steps have been specified in the manufacture of the bead loom, it is to be understood that the sequence of those steps as stated in this description need not be followed, excepting that it is essential that the coils Ill be placed upon the wire prior to the securing together of the abutting ends of the wire. A new and novel method of manufacturing a bead loom has also been described herein by which the abutting ends of the wire forming the continuous looped frame is concealed within one of the coils I 0 forming the thread grooves. As pointed out above, the sequence of steps in the making of the bead loom is not important excepting in the particular pointed out above.

Various modifications will occur to those skilled in the art in the configuration, composition and disposition of the component elements going to make up the invention as a whole, as well as in the selective combination or application of the respective elements, and no limitation is intended by the phraseology of the foregoing description or illustrations in the accompanying drawing.
