SPINNING MACHINE Patented July '31, 1883.-

SPECIFICATION forming part of. Letters Patent No. 282,203, dated July 31, I883.

Application filed Septemberdi], 1882. {No.model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY G. LEONARD, of 'Covington, in the county of Kenton and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and Improved Spinning-Machine, of which the following is'a full, clear, and exact description.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a partof this specification,

.in which similar letters of reference indieate corresponding partsinall the figures.

Figure 1 is a vertical section of the machine. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of y the revolving frame, and Fig. 3 is a transverse section of the said frame.

A is an oblong frame supported for revolution on its longer axis by hollow axles B B on a fixed frame. The frame A carries the mechanism next described.

0 C are gear-wheels supported for revolution by sleeves D D, fixed on the sides of frame A. A pin, d,.connected to the lever E, pivoted to the frame A, passes through the sleeve D, and is provided with a head on its end, which head enters a recess in the hub of the wheelO, and is held therein by a plate, (2, secured to the said hub by screws. The two wheels 0 G carry the bobbin E, which has squared centers fitted in recesses in the wheels,

whereby the bobbin can be removed and an other substituted by moving the wheel 0 out-- ward by means of lever E.

G is a short shaft supported by bearings at H, and provided with a small gear-wheel, I, engaging the wheel 0, and also provided with a bevel-pinion, J, which engages a similar pinion on shaft K, passing through the hollow axle B.

'On the shaft K is a brake-wheel, L, in connection with which a brake is fitted on a lever, M, that is connected to an arm, n, on the end of the treadle-bar N, the treadle 0 of which is placed in a convenient position for, operation.

P l? are two shafts supported at one end of This machine is intended for use for spinning and twisting all kinds of fibrous mateframe A, one above the other, and parallel to the bobbin axis by pivoted plates B. These shafts P l? are provided with gear-wheels q g, which are in gear with each other at all times, and either one of which may be moved into gear with the wheel 0. The upper shaft, P, is screw-threaded, and upon it is a nut, S, provided with two small grooved rollers, T, be tween which the spun material passes.

U U are plates having curved arms fitted to slide on shaft 1?, and connected by bars at, so that they are retained one at the outer side of one wheel, 0, and the other at the outer side of the other wheel, 0.

On wheels 0 C are lugs or tappets V V for striking the arms of plates U U" to shift the gearing q q. The plates U U are also pro vided with right-angled lugs ff, projecting behind the gears q q.

On frame A are small delivery-rollers W at the end of the axle B, and upon the other axle, B, is a pulley, X, for a belt from a prime mover by which the frame A is revolved.

In operation, the frame A being in motion, the wheels 0 C and bobbin are put in revolution by pressing the treadle O and thereby stoppingthe shaft K. Since so long as the shaft K is allowed to revolve, the bevel-wheel J will travel around with the bevel-wheel on the said shaft K without turning on its own the shaft K, and through the gear-wheel I the wheels 0 C and the bobbin F are caused to revolve, and the screw-shaft P is set in motion by engagement of thewheel q with wheel 0, and the nut S thus caused to traverse the frame and lay the spunmaterial on the bobbin regularly. \Vhen the nut approaches the end of its movement it strikes lug f of the plate U I, and moves both the plates, bringing the plate U at the opposite side close to wheel 0 in position for being moved by the tappet V on the wheel 0, which movementrocks the pivoted plates It, throwing the wheel q out of and the other wheel, q, in gear with wheel 0, so that the direction of revolution of screw-shaft I being thus changed the nut S is caused to traverse in the opposite direction. The same reversal takes place at the end of each traverse, I frame A, provided with the hollow axle B,

so that an automatic feed of the spun material is obtained. I

Friction or other suitable devices are to be attached to the frame andcaused to engage with one of the plates B, so as to hold the same in the position to which it has been moved until itis forced out by one of the tappets.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters 1atent- 1. The combination, with the frame A and means for revolving the same, of the wheels G C, journaled therein, the bobbin F, held between the said wheels, the loosely-revolving shaft K, provided with a beve1wheel at its end, the shaft G, provided with the gearwheels I J, and means for stopping the shaft K, whereby rotation of said frame and bobbin is effected, or the rotation of said bobbin arrested without interfering with the rotation of said frame, substantially as herein shown and described.

2. The combination, with the frame A and sleeves D D, of the wheels 0 C, the bobbin F, the clutch-pin d, the lever E, and means for operating said wheels and bobbin, substantially as herein shown and described.

3. The combination, with the revolving the wheels 0 O, journaled in' said frame, and the bobbin F, held between said wheels, of the shaft K, working loosely in said hollow axle, and provided with a bevel-wheel on its end,

and the brake-wheel L, the shaft G, provided 3 5 with the gear-whcels I J, and the brake-lever M, whereby when the said frame is rotated rotation of the bobbin on its own axis is either effected or arrested at the pleasure of the operato'r, substantially as herein shown and de- 40 scribed.

4. The combination, with the frame A and the Wheels 0 C, of the shafts P P, the upper one of which is screw-threaded, gears q q, the

nut S, the rollers T, the plates U U, provided .5

with lugs f f, and means for operating the wheels G O, substantially as and for the purpose set forth. 7

5. The plates U U, wheels 0 0, provided with pins V V, pivoted plates R, shafts P P,

gearing q q, traversing-nut S, and means for operating wheels 0 O, substantially as de scribed, combined for operation, as specified.
