NITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

DANIEL L. WILGOX, OF PAWTUGKET, RHODE ISLAND.

KNITTING-MACHINE.

SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 246,648, dated September 6, 1881,

I Application filed May 21, 1881. (N0 model.)

To all whom "it may concern:

Be it known that I, DANIEL L. WILOOX, of Pawtucket, in the county of Providence and State of Rhode Island, have invented a new and useful Improvementin Knitting-Machines; and I hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being bad to the accompanyin g drawings, forming part of this specification.

This invention has reference to improvements in what is known as the spool-knitter, in which a number of pins are stuck around the central hole of a spool or a perforated cork; and it consists in certain novel constructions and combinations of devices, which will be hereinafter fully described, and

pointed out in the claim.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of one of my improved double knitters, showing the same secured to a table with the large knitter in use. Fig. 2 is a sectional view, showing the support of the knitter and the manner of securing the same. Fig. 3 is a. top and side view of the improved knitting-pin; and Fig. at represents the pin, partly in section, showing the knitting-hook in the act of raising one strand of yarn over the other.

The object of 'the invention is to facilitate the kind of knitting for which the machine is intended.

In the drawings, A is the standard. B is the supporting-bracket secured on the standard, so that it can be swung around its support. 0 is the large knitting-spool secured in the bracket B, so as to revolve freely in the support. D is a smaller knitting-spool, also supported in the bracket B and free to revolve. E is the knitting-hook.

The standard A is constructed in a peculiar but simple manner, consisting of the clamppiece f, having the clamp-screw f, the sleeve 9, the screw-pin h, having the guide-eye h secured to its upper end, the bracket B being held between the shoulder on the screw-pin and the sleeve 9, as is clearly shown in Fig.2. The bracket can swing around the screw-pin h, and, if desired, can be firmly held by screwing down the pin h, so as to hear more tightly on the bracket.

The knitting-pins t t are formed, as shown in Fig. 3, of two wings placed at an angle and curved at their edges to support the yarn and allow the knitting-hook to pass behind the yarn, and in the act of raising the lower yarn to press the upper yarn into the angle formed by the two wings k It. By this construction the raising of the lower yarn over the upper yarn and over the pins is much facilitated.

By this construction the whole forms an attractive and convenient machine. The knitting-spool is supported on the standard and can be swung into any desired position. The yarn y, held in the central guide, it, is not in the way of the work and cannot become ontangled. Two or more knitting-spools of different diameters can be supported on one standard and a variety of work done on the machine.

When the machine is to be used it is clamped to a table, the ball of silk or worsted is placed on the table, one end is passed through the guide h, as shown in the drawings, and then to commence the work the yarn is wound once around each one of the pins 1' i, and the end is dropped through the center of the knitter in the same manner as in using the ordinary straightpin spool-knitter. The knitter is now revolved and the lower yarn passed over the upper and over the pins into the center in a manner known to children who understand how to use spool-knitters.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent A spool-knitter consisting of the standard A, the shouldered screw-pin h, provided with the guide 71 and the bracket B, arranged to turn on the standard or be confined, as desired, and carrying a knitting-spool at each end, substantially as described.

In witness whereof I have hereunto affixed my name.

DANIEL L. WILOOX.
