Application May 20, 1937, Serial No. 143,684 1 Claim. (C1. 139--193) This invention relates to looms for the weaving screws 5 whereby the attachment may be secured of textile fabrics and in such connection it has to the shuttle box mouth plate as revealed in Fig more particular reference to a shuttle guard at tachment for guiding the shuttle of the loom back 5 into its path when de?ected therefrom. The invention has particular relation to looms of the Draper X~model types and also of the Sta?ord and similar makes of looms. In. the operation of such looms the shuttle which carries 10 the bobbin across the warp‘ threads in the weav ures 1 and 2. Welded or otherwise securely fas tened to the tongue 3 of the attachment is another piece of metal 6, one end being directed outwardly as at 6~a. Embracing the portions 3, 6 and 6—a is a strip of leather or similar material of toughpliable nature ‘I, the ends thereof as at 7-11 being lapped over each other. In these ends 'l-—a as well as the portions 3, 6 and 6—-a of the 10 ing of the cloth is frequently de?ected from its path, resulting in the shuttle being smashed or attachment are holes in alinement one with the damaged. covering is securely held in position. It is the primary object of this invention to 15 provide a shuttle guard attachment for the pro tection of the shuttles in looms of the above men tioned and similar types to prevent injury to the shuttle, said attachment engaging the point of the shuttle when the latter is de?ected from its 20 path from any cause and guiding it back into the shuttle race, of the loom. Another object of the invention is to provide an attachment of the above described character which includes a shock-absorbing means to fur 25 ther prevent possible injury to the shuttle. With the above objects in view, the invention will be clearly understood from a perusal of the following detailed description, taken in connec tion with the accompanying drawing and in said - 30 drawing: Figure 1 is a plan view of the shuttle box mouth plate of a Draper X-model loom with the attach ment embodying the invention fastened thereto. Figure 2 is a cross-sectional view of Figure 1, 35 the view taken along the line 2—2 of Figure 1, Figure 3 is a bottom view of the attachment removed from the shuttle box mouth plate, Figure 4 is a perspective view of a portion of a loom of another type and illustrating a modi 40 ?cation of the invention mounted thereon, and Figure 5 is a plan view of the modi?ed form of the attachment shown in Figure 4, the view being partly broken away. Reference being had more in detail to the draw 45 ing, and wherein like parts will be designated by like reference characters, I denotes the shuttle other to receive a screw 8, whereby the leather In Figure 5 the attachment is shown modi?ed to accommodate-types of looms di?erent in struc- 15 ture from the X model Draper type. In this form of the attachment the body 9 is made of steel of su?icient thinness to provide resiliency. In tegral with the body 9 is a tongue l0. Figure 4: shows this modi?ed form of the attachment in 20 operative position on thebattery side or end of the reed cap II, the reed being indicated at l2. For this purpose the tongue has a hole for the reed cap bolt l3 for securing the attachment in I position, as will be apparent. The ‘race plate for 25 the travel of the shuttle, the guard and the lay are indicated respectively at I4, l5 and Hi. The body 9 of the modi?ed form of the attach ment is covered on each side by pieces of leather I1, the leather or similar material being secured 30 thereto by the rivets l8 passing through the body 9 and the covering. As the shuttle travels along the race plate l4 and should it for any cause be deflected from its path, it is thrown into the attachment or guard 35 constituting the invention and the leather cov ering absorbs the shock to an extent su?icient to prevent the shuttle from being injured or broken. The body 9 and the tongue 10 are made of steel ' thin enough to give with the shock of the shuttle‘ 40 and assist in absorbing the same. This guard can be affixed to both ends of the reed cap, but is most e?ective at the battery end, and can be applied thereto as explained by the reed cap bolt l3 and so adjusted as to clear the temple and 45 the cloth. , box mouth plate of a Draper X-model loom to which the attachment embodying the invention is secured and having connection with the mouth 50 plate on the battery side of the loom. This at tachment consists of an elongated piece of metal 2 with a portion thereof disposed at substantially It is believed that the preceding description will be suf?cient to those skilled in the art to which the invention relates. Both forms of the inven tion may be changed, altered and further modi?ed 50' right angles to the body 2 and forming a tongue 3, more clearly shown in Figures 2 and 3. The 55 body 2 has spaced holes 4 for the insertion of from the spirit of the invention. What is claimed as new is: to an extent within the scope and meaning of the claim appended hereto without departing i A shuttle guard attachment for looms, in com- 55 2 2,106,510 bination with the shuttle box mouth plate of the loom, said attachment comprising a metal plate having an elongated body and a tongue projecting from the body at substantially right angles there to, said body having apertures for fastening the body of the plate to the shuttle box mouth plate of the loom, said tongue having a piece of metal secured thereto across the endof the tongue, one end of said piece being curved outwardly from the tongue and a covering of resilient yieldable material embracing said curved piece of metal and said tongue, and means for holding the cov ering in position.
