SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No.373,1f14, dated November 15, 1887.

Application filed April 25, 1887. Serial No. 236,043. (No model.)

cheap, simple, adjustable seat for sewing-machine tables, and one that is adapted for easy attachment thereto and to be swung under the table when not in use.

Other objects and advantages of the inven- I 5 tion will hereinafter appear, and the novel features thereof Will be particularly pointed out in the claim. 7

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of a portion of a machine-table pro- 'vided with a stool or seat constructed in accordance with my invention, and Fig. 2 is a detail in section of the laterally-adj usting de- \VIGG.

Like letters of reference indicate like parts A represents a sewing-machine table of usual construction, mounted upon legs or standards A. Upon one of the legs A, near its bottom, is mounted a bearing, A, clamped to said leg by means of embracing arms adapted to be held in place by means of a binding-screw passing through perforations in said arms.

Mounted in the bearing A, and adapted to 5 rotate or swing therein, is a vertical rod, B,

- the upper end being seated in a bearing-plate, A secured to the under surface of the table in a vertical line with the bearing A Projecting laterally from the rod B and integral therewith are braces B, which converge and join, forming an adjusting-bar, B at the top and bottom of which are formed longitudinal parallel flanges B and having a perforation, 13*, for the reception of an adjusting or set screw, B

0 represents the seat or stool, which may be upholstered, as shown, or ofany suitable construction, from the bottom of which depends a sorew,O, adapted to enter a bored and screwthreaded standard, 0 designed to rest upon the floor and provided with a laterally-projecting adjusting arm, O longitudinally slotted, as at 0 for the reception of the screw B and constructed to slide within and be embraced by the flanges B of the bar B.

By the construction just described it is apparent that the stool and its standard may be adjusted away from or nearer to the bar B, and that the stool can be raised and lowered, similar to a pianostool, at will. In this manner the device may be attached to any ordinary form of machine-table.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim is The combination, with a sewing-machine table, of a pivoted standard mounted thereon and upon a removable socketed clamp secured to the leg of the table, and adjustably connected with a seat adapted to rest upon the floor and to be carried by the standard, substantially as specified.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
