TAILOR S TABLE.

; Patented oct. 20, 1896.

INVENTOR Marcus ./Z'dzm -BY l ATTORNEYS UNITED STATES 'PATENT OFFICE.

MARCUS A. ADLER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

TAlLO RS TABLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 569,947, dated October 20, 1896.

Application filed August 6, 1896. Serial No. 661,885. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that LMARcUs AADLER, a citizen of the United States,residiu g at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Tailors Tables, of which the following is a speciiication. v

This invention relates to that class of tables used by tailors and others in cutting garments or material; and the object of the invention is to obtain a table which is of sirnple and cheap construction and which enables efficient or satisfactory cutting to be readily effected; and the invention resides inl the novel features of construction set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a plan View of a table. Fig. 2 is a sectional side elevation of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a section along` a; w, Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a section along 'y y, Fig. 2.

A table-top 1 is supported on legs 2 and 3 and is slotted, as at 4. The table-top is provided With one or more rotary portions having their tops flush with the table-top. Each rotary portion consists of a series of strips 5, spaced to have the slots or spacings 6 correspond to the slots 4. Each strip 5 is severally supported on suitable risers 7, secured independently of one another to a swiveling base 8. The base 8 is rotatively supported by means of pin 9, sitting into socket 10, and the base is steadied by the rollers 11, journaled in supports 12 and supporting the base edge. The table-top portion interposed into the space between the rotary portions comprises independent strips 13, suitably spaced, so that the slots or spacin gs 14 correspond to the slots 6. Each strip 13 is severally supported on suitable risers 15, secured independently of one another to a base 16, secured to table-top legs 3.

The utility of a table-top with rotary portions is apparent. A piece of cloth or material being supported on the top parts 1 and 13 and on the rotary portions 5, a long cut or cuts can be made in the material by running a knife or cutter along slots 4 6 14 6 4, while the rotary supporting parts 5 enable bias or curve cuts to be readily made.

At times it may be desired to lock a rotary supporting portion 5 7 8 in position as to hold slots 6 in communication or alinement with slots 4 and 14. A lock or pin 17, Fig. 3,

is adapted to engage or lock a base S against leaving the base, with part 5, free to turn or swivel. A

To prevent the knife or cutter from catching when crossing the boundary or dividing line or when running from one slot into another, as from 4 into 6 or from 6 into 14, the slots are formed with enlarged mouths or end portions formed by the rounded or cut-away parts 25 in the top 1, interposed part 13, and rotary supporting part 5.

A supporting part 5 can be rotated in any suitable way,'as by the operator placing a foot on base 8, between risers 7, and swiveling the base S with supporting part 5, as desired.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure 2. A slotted table-top having supportinglegs and provided with suitably-separated rotary supporting portions each comprising strips spaced to correspond with the slots in the table-top, independent risers for severally supporting the strips, a rotary or swivel base for the risers, and supporting-rollers for the edge of the swivel-base to steady the latter, said table-top having a portion interposed between the rotary supporting-portions, said interposed table-top portion comprising strips spaced to correspond with the slots or spaces in the table-top and in the rotary supporting portions, independent risers for severally supporting theinterposed top strips, and a fixed base for the interposed strip-risers, said fixed roo base being secured to table-top legs substantially as described.

3. A slotted table-top having supportinglegs and provided with a rotary supporting portion comprising strips spaced to correspond with the slots in the tabletop, independent risers for severally supporting the strips, a rotary or swivel base for the risers, and supporting-rollers for the edge of the swivel-base to steady the latter, said tabletop and rotary portion being cut away at edge portions to form enlargements or mouths at the meeting of the several slot portions sub stantially as described.

4. A slotted table-top having supportinglegs and provided with a rotary supporting portion comprising strips spaced to correspend with the slots in the table-top, independent risers Jfor severally supporting the strips, a rotary or swivel base for the risers, su pporting-rollers for the edge of the swivelbase to steady the latter, a locking-lever for the swivel-base, an actuating handle or rod for the lever, and a guide for the handle connected to a side or edge of the table-top substantially as described.

5. A slotted table-top having supportinglegs and provided with a rotary supporting portion comprising strips spaced to correspond with the slots in the table-top, independent risers 'or severally supporting the strips, a rotary or swivel base for the risers, and supporting-rollers for the edge of the swivel-base, said risers being spaced to permit the insertion of the operators foot between said risers onto the base for swivcling the lat-ter substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
