NEEDLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 299,305, dated May 27, 1884:.

Application filed pceember 18, 1883. (N model.)

To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, JOHN WV. WEED, a citizen of the United States, residing at Flushing, Long Island, State of New York, haveinvcnted a new and useful Needle, of which the following is aspecification.

In the following description of my inven- I tion the term cord includes thread, twine,

cord, tape, rope, and any other ligature, by whatever name it may be called.

My invention is shown in {the accompanying drawings, Figuresland 2. Theygivcperspective views of the needle-No. 1 with the receptacle for the cord open, and No. 2 with the receptacle closed and the cord to be carried in position.

The following is a description of the needle:

which it moves freely. V

f is a sleeve which slides upon the stem and over the arm when closed. It is retained upon the needle by two shoulders, g g, on the stem and arm, between which it slides.

h h are hollow concave receptacles for the cord on both the lower portions of the needle and on the arm. They may be provided on their inner sides with abrasions, indentations, or teeth for the purpose of preventingthe cord from slipping upon their surfaces.

The needle is used in this wise: The arm b b is raised into the position shown in Fig. 1, and the cord 2 is placed in the hollow receptacle h of the lower portion of the needle a a. The arm I) b is then shut down upon the cord, as shown in Fig. 2, and the sleeve f is slipped over the stem and arm until they are tightly closed together. The stem has a gradually-in creasing circuin fercnce from the shoulder near the point of the needle toward the shoulder nearest the receptacle for the cord,which gives increased binding force to the sleeve. The needle is then ready for sewing.

It is obvious that my needle is best adapted to carrying the larger cords or tapes, as the workmanship upon aneedle to carry the smaller threads would be of so delicate a character as to render it both expensive and fragile; but for doing coarse sewing in tough material or stringing cords or tapes through apertures already made, it will be found to be of great service.

I claim as my invention A. needle consisting of a pointed stem having an arm pivoted thereto, said stem and arm each concaved at their outer ends, and asleeve to bind the stem and arm together to secure the cord, substantially as set forth.

JOHN W. WVEED.

In presence of- JAMES L. SKILLIN, JOHN J. MoGINTY.
