' xnrrrme 'iinoninn NEEDLE.

975,466. Specification of Lett r n Patented Nov. 15, 1910.

Application filed May 12, 1908. Serial No. 432,491.

To all whom 'it may concern:

Be it known that I, ROBERT W. SCOTT, a citizen of the United States, residing in Leeds Point, Atlantic county, New Jersey, have invented certain, Ini irovements in Knitting-Machine Needles, of which the following is specification. I

My invention relates to that class of knitting machine needles aterline an end butt for the action of a cahior for engagement with a jack, the object of my invention being to so construct such butt as to impart to it the strength needful to enable it to resist the strain to which it is subjected in use.

The drawing illustrates, on an enlarged scale, a needle constructed in accordance with my invention.

The needle is composed of wire bent to form theordinary butt 1 for the action of the knittin cams and it is also provided at the end wit. 1 another butt, which may be in tended either for the action of a supplementary cam or for the attachment of' a jack through the medium of which movement in dependent of that imparted by the knitting cams may be transmitted to the needle, a portion of such jack being shown at 2 in the drawing, and where I use the term hook-like operating member in the claims,. it is to bunderstood that both a supplemenwhich movement indepen ent of tli'at imparted by the l nittingcams-may be transmitted to t he needle;, are included thereby.

If the butt simply projects at right an les from the stemor shank of the nee le it oes not possess the necessary strength to resist. the-strains to which it is subjected, and, in order to overcome this objection, I form the butt by means of a rev-*erselybent finger 3 at the end of the' shank, this finger,'.by pref-' erence, lyin parallel with the stem or shank of the need e, and being united firmly to the lower portion of said stem or shank by means of soldering or brazing 4, the result being an extremely strong butt, which will effectually resist'all of the strains to which it is likely to be subjected in the use of the needle. The bends which form the butt 1 ma also be united by soldering or brazing,-

tary cam and a jack, through the medium of.

if esired, as shown at 5 in the-drawing in I claim 1. A knitting machine needle having a wire shank bent to form a projecting butt above its lower end and havingat s'ziid'lower end a reve rsely bent finger terminating such distance below the upper butt to form a engagement with a hook-like operating member of the machine in the lane of the needle, whereby the needle can e operated. 2. A. knittingv machine needle having a wire shank bent to form, above its lower end, a projecting butthaving its members secured together and below saidbutt a sec- 0nd butt whose up er face is adapted for engagin a hook-In e operating member of the mac ine in the plane of the needle, whereby the needle can be operated, said second butt comprising a reversely bent finger terminating such distance below the upper butt to permit said hook-like operatin member to engage said butt in the plane of the needle. 3. A knitting machine needle having a wire shank.bent to form a projecting butt above its lower end, and having, at, said lower end,.a reversely'bent finger secured to theshank. 0f the needle and constituting a slower butt whose upper face is adapted for engagement with a hook.- like operating member of the machine in the plane of the needle, whereby the needle can be operated. 4;. A knitting machine needle having a together, said shank having at the lower end a reversely bent finger lying alongside of ROBERT w. scorr- Witnesses:
