COREY JONES, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 623,404, dated April 18, 1899.
Application filed October 4,1898. Serial No. 692,592. (No model.)
To (tZZ whom, it rncty concern:
Be it known that I, COREY JoNEs, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing in the city of New York, (Long Island City,) borough of Queens, in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Winding-Frames, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The invention relates to silk winding frames in which the quills are held in position by cones and the spindles are removably connected with the driving mechanism.
The object of the inventionis to provide certain new and useful improvements in windingframes whereby the quill and the filling disconnect automatically the spindle from the rotating well to permit a convenient removal of the quill and spindle from the machine without danger of entangling the silk, the improvement also permitting of replacing the quill-spindle with an empty quill and of connecting automatically the spindle with the driving mechanism.
The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same, as will be fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a front elevation of theimprovement with the well and driving-pulley in section. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the same with the quill filled and the quill-spindle disconnected from the well, and Fig. 3 is a transverse section of the improvement on the line 3 3 in Fig. 2.
The winding-frame is provided with a lower rail A and an upper rail 13, on which latter are mounted to turn loosely sets of cones O for supporting the quill D, on which the silk E is to be wound, the silk passing to the quill between two of the cones. The quillD is held loosely on a spindle F, provided near its upper end with a transverse pin F for engaging a transverse slot D, formed in the top of the quill to rotate the latter when the spindle is rotated to wind up the silk on the quill in the usual manner. As is well known, the quill D, with the spindle F, rises on the cones 0 upon filling the quill with silk or other yarn to be wound.
The lower end F of the spindle F is made rectangular in cross-section and is adapted to engage the movable section or top G of a well G, mounted to turn on a suitable pin or other bearing H, carried on the lower rail A. On the lower end of the well G is secured or formed a pulley I, connected by a cord or belt with a driving-drum to imparta continuously-rotating movement to the pulley on the well. The section G of the well G is made tubular in its lower port-ion, and the top thereof is formed with a rectangular central opening G for receiving the lower correspondingly-shaped end F of the spindle F. (See Fig. 1.) The top surface of the head of the section G is concaved, as at G to readily guide the extreme lower end of the spindle F to the opening G upon placing an empty quill and its spindle on the machine previously to winding the silk on the quill.
The section G is provided in the side of its tubular lower end with an opening G having beveled sides adapted to be engaged by a pin J, secured to the upper end of the well, so that the rotary motion of the latter is trans mitted to the section G, and when the lower end F of the spindle engages said section, as shown in Fig. 1, then the section G travels up in the well owing to the resistance of the cones 0 given to the quill D upon rotating the latter, so that the section G during the winding of the silk on the quill remains in an uppermost position.
It is evident that as the quill fills with silk or other yarn it rises on the cones O and carries the spindle F along, so that finally the lower end of the spindle moves out of engagement with the section G, and the moment this takes place the section G drops by its own weight back into its former position, as shown in Fig. 2, the head of the section resting upon the upper end of the well. It is also evident that the extreme lower end or bottom of the spindle F is a considerable distance away from the top surface of the section G, and consequently there is no danger whatever of further driving of the spindle and quill after the quill is filled. ator can now conveniently remove the spindle with the filled quill from the machine The operand remove the quill from the spindle and place an empty quill on said spindle. The spindle with the empty quill is now replaced on the n1achinethat is, the quill is seated on the cones and the lower end of the spindle drops into the concaved face of the section G, to be readily guided into the opening G without requiring the operator to manipulate the spindle to pass it into the well-opening, as was necessary heretofore in wells not having a movable section with a concaved top face.
As soon as the lower end of the spindle engages the section G the said section slides into an uppermost position, as shown in Fig. 1 and as previously explained, and the rotary motion of the well is transmitted to the spindle and the quill, and winding of the silk on the quill can now begin.
The opening or recess G is preferably provided with two beveled side walls, as indicated in Fig. 3, so that the section will move upward easily no matter in which direction the well G is rotated.
Having thus fully described my in vention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A winding-frame provided with a well comprising a section mounted to turn, and a section mounted to slide in the first-mentioned section, the said sliding section being arranged for engagement with a quill-spindle, a projection on one of said sections and an inclined surface on the other section adapted to be engaged by the projection, substantially as shown and described.
2. A winding-frame, provided with a well comprising a section mounted to turn, and a section mounted to slide in the upper part of the first-mentioned section, the said sliding section being formed with a head at its upper end,the said section being formed with a central opening for engagement with a quillspindle, and a pin on one of said sections engaging a recess or groove in the other section, the said recess having beveled side walls',substantially as shown and described.
3. A winding-fran1e, provided with a well mounted to turn and connected with a driving mechanism, a section fitted to slide in the upper end of the well and adapted to connect with a quill-spindle,said section being form ed in its side with an inclined wall, and a pin carried by the well and engaging said inclinedwall, substantially as shown and described.
l- A winding-frame, comprising a setof cones for supporting a quill, a spindle engaging said quill, a well mounted to turn and connected with a driving mechanism, a section having a sliding movement in said well, said section being formed in its side with a recess having an inclined wall and a pin carried by the well and engaging said inclined wall, the said section being formed with a central opening to receive the end of the spindle, and the top face of the said section being concave to guide the end of the spindle to the opening, substantially as shown and described.
