ME FOR CUTTING GLOVES.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No.'293,8'72, dated February 19, 1884.
Application filed June To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Gnonen A. HATHORN, a citizen of the United States, residing at J ohnstown, in the countyof Fulton andState of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dies for Cutting Gloves, of which the following is a specification, to wit:
This invention relates to an improvement in dies for cutting gloves; and it consists in certain peculiarities of constructionand arter more fully set forth.
In order to enable others skilled in the art to which my invention appertains to make and use the same, Iwill now proceed to dering to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a bottom plan view of my die, and Fig. 2 a longitudinal vertical section of A represents a plate or base, upon the under side of which is secured the blades or cutting-sections A, of the usual form, for cutting out a complete glove. The inner ends of the blades A, which cut the fingers, are each provided withasmall extension, a, which are hingedto the base-plate, and those upon each half of the glove are secured in and moved by pivoted plates or bars, B, which are pivoted at b to the main plate A, and are connected by a cross-bar, B, so as to-move together. These plates are so joined and pivoted that when shifted from one side to the other they will throw up one set of extensions, a a, into cutting position, and the other down, where they will be prevented from cutting, those which are raised being always upon the section intended to cut the back of V the glove, as will be readily understood.
0 represents a shifting bar, which carries Said die is placed in' an opening'in the bar clamping-plate, c c, at each end, secured to the bar by screws. The. bar is pivoted at c to the base-plate or back of the main .die, and being secured to the connecting-bar B, carries that bar with it as it is shifted from side to side. The rear end of the bar 0 rests in a guide or groove, 0 in the plate A, and is provided with a knob, O, the shank of which passes through a curved slot inthe plate and 14,1883. (No model.)
forms a handle, by 'which the bar is to be moved. WVhen shifted, it is held by means of a spring, D, formed with small shoulders d, which engage the bar, and also provided with a handle, D, passing'through the main plate,- by which the spring is drawn back and the bar released. A stop, d, upon the plate A, prevents the bar from shifting too far.
As the back of a glove is always cut with the finger-slits longer, and the thumb-opening is to be taken from the front of the glove, it will be readily understood by reference to the drawings that when the bar 0 is shifted to one side it will cut a right-hand glove, and
when shifted back it will cut a left-hand one,
up as the other is thrown down, substantially as shown and described.
2. In a glove-die, a shifting bar carrying a removable die for cutting the thumb-opening, in combination with two sets of hinged ex tension-blades, adapted to register with the finger-blades upon either side, substantially as described and shown. 7
3. In a die for cutting gloves, the extension-blades a a, each set secured in a pivoted operating-bar, and so connected that one set will be thrown up when the other is down, substantially as shown and described.
4.. In a glove-cutter, the back plate,'A, having the blades A A in combination with the hinged extensions on a, pivoted plates B, crossbar B, shifting bar 0, carrying the thumb-die holding-spring D, and handles 0 D, all constructed and arranged to operate substantially as described and shown.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
GEORGE A. HATHORN.
