V CONNECTING DEVICE FDR HARNESS' STRAPS FOR LOOMS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 363,352, dated May 24, 1887. H Application filed September 27, 1886. Serial No. 214,706. (ModelJ .To aZZ whom. it may concern:
. Be it known that I, GEORGE H. AVERY, a citizen of the United States, residing at East Hampton, in the county of Hampshire and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Connecting Devices for HarnessStraps for Looms; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, forming a part of this specification.
The nature of my invention particularly relates to the means for. connecting the straps to the heddlerframes, &c.
The harness-strap now generally in use is made of a single piece of leather substantially round for the greater portion of its length, but
A having its ends flat for a few inches, and having in these flat ends a series of holes, with which engages the hook which connects the strap with the frame. The strap thus commonly used is very liable to break at the hole which the hook enters, and to obviate this difficulty is the object of my invention, which I will now proceed to particularly describe with reference to the drawings, in which- Figure 1 shows the entire strap with my improved means for eonnectingit to the hook. Figs. 2 and 3 are views from different points, showing a portion of the strap with end piece and hook; and Fig. 4. shows an ordinary leather strap having the flat end with holes to engage the book, as now in use.
In carrying my improvement into effect I take the ordinary round leather strap, B, made, however, without the usual flat ends, and fasten to it separate end pieces, A. These separate end pieces are made each of a strip of metal,
wood, or leather, having a series of holes, a a, in a line near together, of sufficient size to permit the introduction into them of the round strap. The strap is then secured to the end pieces by putting an end of it through the hole at the extreme end of the end piece, and then drawing it through the next hole in an oppo site direction, and through the third hole in the same direction in which it passed through the first, and so on through as many holes as may be necessary to hold it. If the strap be first moistened and then putthrough four holes, it will hold against and will not pull out under the ordinary strain to which it is subjected. The remaining holes in the end pieces not occupied by the strap are used to engage with the wire hooks C, to connect the strap with the heddle-frame, using such holes therefor as will make the strap the right length in each case.
The holes punched in the flat leather ends of the straps now commonly used, as shown in Fig. 4, tear out easily, and a similar difficulty would be experiened if separate pieces were riveted to the ends of the straps. Such difficulties are not experienced in the use of my improved strap.
, I claim- As a new article of manufacture, the harnessstrap consisting of the strap 13 and the end piece,A, having aseries of holes, a a, the strap being passed through successive holes in opposite directions, all substantially as and for the purpose specified.
