SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 664,229, dated December 18, 1900.

Application led May 11,1900. Serial No. 16,323. (No model.)

To @ZZ whom t may concern,.-

Beit known that LACHILLE FRANoIs RAY- MOND, a citizen of the Republic of France, and a resident of Grenoble,'lsre, France, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Machines for Affixing Glove and other Fasteners,of which thefollowing is a specification.

This invention relates to a machine for setting in place or afiixing a fastener, as, for example, such as that described in my pending application, Serial No. 741,198, led December 21, 1899, wherein the leather of the glove or article is drawn integrally over the socket of the fastening.

The machine may be actuated by the foot at the beginning of the operation, when the operators hands are both occupied, and the operation be there finished by actuating the machine by hand.

In the accompanying drawings, which serve to illustrate the invention, Figure l is a sectional elevation of the machine. This view shows only the upper main portion of the machine. Figs. 2 and 3 are respectively a side View and a front'view of the machine on a smaller scale than Fig. l and showing 'the lower partgand treadle. Figs. 4 and 5 are sectional detail views of the lower die and its holder, the respective views showing` the parts as they appear at different times lduring the operation. Fig. 6 shows the upper die and the cap. Fig. 7 is a view of the tool employed for marking the glove at the points where the fasteners are to be placed. Fig. 8 shows the marked glove, and Fig. 9 shows how the glove is to be held when the fasteners are to be applied thereto with the machine.

In the drawings, X represents a table on which the machine is mounted.

In a suitable frame A, iixed to the table, is mounted a sliding plunger or carrier P for the upper die or punch Q, which has a socket and a set-screw B for securing it to the carrier P. This carrier has a piston-like head q, which plays in a bore in the frame, and a coil-spring E under said head serves to re tract the carrier. The carrier P may be driven down with the foot by means of a treadle T through the medium of a rod t and connector t', the rod having an arm S, which connects it to thecarrier. N is a head on the rod t, which limits its downward movement. The carrier P may be driven down by hand through the medium of a screw V, which screws down in the frame upon the head of the carrier P. This screw is provided with an operating-handle L. The downward movement of the screw F is limited bya device in the nature of au adjustable collar, which embraces said screw above the frame. limiting device consists-of two telescoping collars D and D', which screw one within the other and are secured together when set by a set-screw V.

The lower die (designated as a whole by M) comprises a sleeve C, which slides telescopically over a tubular stationary core m, which is mounted in the frame A. Within the tubular core is a piston p, to which the sleeve O is connected by a cross-pin which can play in slots lr in the core. Under the lower end o`f/\t\he piston jo is a blade-spring h on the fram"e,said spring tending at all times to press the piston p and sleeve c upward, or, rather, which supports them elastically. A set-screw V secures the core m in the frame. Fig. f1 shows the sleeve c elevated, and Fig. 5 shows it depressed.

'lhe manner of fixing the fastener member will now be described. This member consists of a hemispherical cup with a liange about its mouth anda ring which is rounded interiorly.V The cup is applied to the inner face of the leather of the articles and the ring to the outer face thereof, and the cup is then pushed, together with the leather, through the ring. At the same time the cup is somewhat flattened by pressure on its crown and correspondingly expanded laterally, whereby the ring is made to draw the leather of the laterally bulged or expanded cap and embrace the neck of the cup next the flange. In Fig. 6 the cup @c and ring y are seen at the right, and in Fig. 1 they are seen in place in the lower die after the cup has been laterally expanded. For the better illustration of the operation the leather is omitted from Fig. 4:.

The 'practical operation is as follows: A cup w is set mouth uppermost in the hollow of the die M and the punch Q brought down into it by the foot. The head N on the treadle-rod limits the movement so the 'punch This IOC

merely wedges itself into and picks up the cup. The ring y is now placed in the hollow of the die M and the glove or other article placed ou the die over said ring. The punch Q, carrying the cup at, is now driven down by means of the treadle T, while the hands of the operator are holding the glove or other article. This drives the cup and leather down through the ring far enough to fix the cap in position, when the punch is further depressed and the operation completed by the screw F.

R is an adjustable guide to assist in properly locating the fastenings ata uniform distance from the margin thereof.

Gloves to which this class of fasteners are to be secured cannot be marked in the usual way at the points where the fasteners are to be placed. These points must be marked on the inner face of the glove, as seen at a in Figs. 8 and 9. To effect this marking conveniently, a tool like that illustrated in Fig. 7 may be employed. This tool has a handle H and a blade I, having aplurality of points or prongs z', which sit at a distance apart equal to the distance apart of the fastenings. On the blade e' is mounted adjustably, by a screw V", a prong R', adapted to be set at the margin of the article. The usual distance apart of the fastenings on a glove is ten, eleven, or twelve lines.

Having thus described my invention, I claiml. A machine for the purpose specified, having a frame, a plunger mounted in a guide in said frame, a treadle, means connecting said treadle and plunger, a screw F, adapted to depress said plunger, a handle for operating said screw, a lower die, and an upper punch or die carried by the plunger.

2. In a machine for the purpose specified, the combination with a lower die,a depressible plunger or upper die-carrier, and a screw for depressing said plunger, of the adjustable limiting-collar comprising the two telescoping collars D and D, and the means for clamping` them together when adjusted.

3. ln a machine for the purpose speci-fied, the combination with the reciprocating upper die or punch, of the lower die, comprising the tubular, stationary core m, fixed in position, the sleeve c mounted to slide thereon, the piston p, connected with said sleeve and sliding in the core m, and the springr, under the piston p, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses. f
