PINKER' GUARD AND FABRIC GUIDE Filed April 2, 1936 INVENTOR s Meyer Brauns [an Horris Flaman ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 24, 1936 UNlTE STATS PATENT OFFICE Morris Kleiman, Mount Vernon, and Meyer Braunstein, New York, N. Y.
Application April 2, 1936, Serial No. 72,244
Our invention relates to improvements in protecting and guiding devices, particularly to a protecting device or guard for the pinker of pinking machines for cutting fancy edges in fabrics 5 or the like, and it is the principal object of our invention to provide a device positively protecting the operators fingers and hands against injuries when guiding the fabric to the pinker or cutting wheel and to positively guide fabrics of various thicknesses to the pinker.
The known devices of this character invariably cause the fabric led to the pinker to engage with one or the other machine part and thus to become torn and spoiled resulting in loss of goods and time or for want of a positive guide caused the rumpling or mussing of the goods and consequent uneven cutting.
All the disadvantages are successfully overcome by the protecting and guiding device according to our invention which is simple and inexpensive in its construction, yet durable and highly efiicient in use and can be readily attached to any of the pinking machines now in use without the necessity of making material changes in their construction.
A further object of our invention is the provision of means combined with the protecting device for guiding fabrics of varying thickness to the pinker and for securely holding the fabrics against the operating plate of the machine.
These and other objects and advantages of our invention will become more fully known as the description thereof proceeds, and will then be specifically defined in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a pinker machine equipped with a protecting and guiding device constructed according to our invention.
40 Fig. 2 is an end view of the pinker equipped with our novel protecting and guiding device, the machine table and accessories being fragmentarily shown.
Fig. 3 is a perspective View of the protector 45 and guide per se constructed according to our invention.
' The machine table or stand III, as illustrated,
carries the operating table or plate ll, fly wheel guard I2, gear-box I3 and sleeve M in which the 50 shaft I5 is journaled carrying the pinker l6 with which cooperates a roller ll projecting through an opening in the operating plate.
The guard for the pinker and the guide for the fabric as illustrated in Figure 3, consists primar- 55 ily of a member l8 substantially Z-shaped in cross-section, the vertical flange IQ of which forms a shoulder along the inner face of which the fabric is guided to the pinker wheel, and a substantially leaf-shaped spring 20 is secured at one end to the inner upper face of the member I8 and presses with its other end upon the fabric for securely holding the same against the operating plate while it is guided along the shoulder of member [8 to the pinker,
A lateral flange 2B of the member l8 has an 10 opening 2| for the passage of a thumb screw or the like 22 securing the guard removably to the operating plate.
Intermediate its ends the member I8 is curved upwardly and outwardly, and its appropriately 15 widened end portion 23 covers the pinker and an extension 24 of the flange I9 provided with a suitable depression 25 oppositely disposed to the pinker.
The operation and use of our device will be en- 20 tirely clear from the above description and by having simultaneous reference to the drawing, and it will be evident that the guard will positively protect the fingers of the operator while feeding the fabric to the pinker and will ap- 25 propriately guide the fabric of varying thickness to the pinker.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A pinker guard and fabric guide for pinking machines comprising a body having a shoulder formed therewith, an upwardly and outwardly directed widened plate formed with said body extending above and beyond the pinker, a means to guide the fabric during the feeding of the same to the pinker, and a means to hold fabrics of varying thicknesses against the operating plate of the pinking machine.
2. A pinker guard and fabric guide for pinking machines comprising a body, substantially Z-shaped in cross section, an upwardly and forwardly curved widened plate formed with said body intermediate the ends thereof to cover the pinker, a shoulder formed with said body against which the fabric is guided during its feeding to the pinker, a means to secure said body to the operating plate of the pinking machine, and a means to hold fabrics of varying thicknesses against the flange of the Z-body and the operating plate during the feeding of the fabric to the pinker.
3. In a guard and fabric guide for the pinker of pinking machines, a body having a depending flange forming a shoulder for guiding the fabric to be worked upon during its feeding to the pinker, a perforated, laterally extending flange for fastening the guard to the work table of the pinking machine, and an extension for said flange having a depression on the arc of a circle formed in its upper edge opposite the pinker, and a guard co-operating with said extension for protecting the pinker.
4. The combination of a pinker with a guard therefor and a fabric guide including a body having an upper straight flange, and a lateral depending flange formed therewith, and an upwardly and forwardly directed widened plate formed with said upper straight flange, means to secure said guard to the work table of a pinking machine, said upper straight flange and the inner face of the depending flange forming fabric guides during the feeding thereof to the pinker, and means to press fabrics of varying thickness against the work table during the feeding thereof to the pinker.
5. A pinker guard and fabric guide for pinking machines comprising a body, a straight flange formed with said body and a depending flange angularly disposed to said straight flange, a leaf spring attached to said straight flange at one of its ends and loosely engaging the fabric to press the same against the work table of the pinking machine at its other end, said straight and depending flanges acting as fabric guides during the feeding thereof to the pinker, an upwardly and forwardly curved widened plate formed with said straight flange covering the pinker, and an extension on, said depending flange having an arcuate depression formed in its upper edge oppositely to the pinker, and a means to removably secure said guard and fabric guide to the work-table of a pinking machine.
