STITCHING FACILITATING APPARATUS
Alexander G. Koenig, Cincinnati, Ohio
Application April 17, 1937, Serial No. 137,575
7 ' Claims.
This invention relates to a stitching facilitat
ing apparatusdesigned primarily- to be used in
libraries, o?ices and similar establishments where
binding is not practical, but it is to be understood
-5 that an apparatus, in accordance with this inven
tion is to be employed in any connection for which
it may be found applicable.
The invention has for its object to provide, in
a manner as hereinafter set forth an apparatus
10 to facilitate the operation of stitching together
in volumes, such items as periodicals, pamphlets,
loose sheets, etc., whereby whenxthe items are
stitched they will be kept in order. and readily
accessible when and where binding is not prac
15 tical.
The invention further aims to provide,ina man
ner as hereinafter set forth, an apparatus. for-the
purpose referred to which is comparatively sim
ple in its construction and. arrangement, strong,
20
durable, compact, readily assembled, conveniently
handled,‘ thoroughly efficient in its‘use ‘and com
paratively inexpensive to manufacture.
With the foregoing and other objects in view
the invention consists of the novel construction,
25 combination and arrangement of- parts as will be
more speci?cally set forth and as illustrated in
the accompanying drawings wherein is shown an
embodiment of the invention, but'it is'to be un
derstood that changes, variations and modi?ca
30 tions may be resorted to which fall‘ within the
scope of- the invention as claimed.
In the drawings:
Figure l is a front elevation of the apparatus
in which is positioned a series of superimposed
items to be acted upon in'a manner to facilitate
(CI. 77-63)
ed vertically movable drill, and that shown in
Figures 9 and 10 a motor operated drill.
Both forms of the apparatus include a com
bined base and standard element II of a similar
construction. The element II consists of chan
nel shaped base I2 open at each side and a stand
ard having lengthwise thereof a Teshaped groove
opening at its front and'at its top. The standard
of the form shown in Figure 1 is indicated at I3
and that of the form shown in'Figure 9 at It.‘ 10"
The form of the groove in each standard is shown
in Figures 6 and 8 and indicated at Ma.
The base I2 consists of a rectangular front
member I5, a rectangular back member’ I6 and a
bottom member Ill. The members I5, It seat at
their lower lengthwise edges upon a suitable sup
port not‘shown. The height of member I5 'is
greater than that of member I5. The member
I6 permanently extends above member E5. The
base member I'I merges into or is connected with
the rear face of member I5 and the forward
face of member I6 above the lower lengthwise
edges of members I5, It. The standard I3 has
extending forwardly from the lower end of its
forward face. an extension I8 which is anchored 25.
to the rear face, flush with the lower lengthwise
edge of and slightly less in height than that of
the rear base member I6. The extension I8 is
anchored to member I6 centrally of the rear base
of the'latter. The forward 'face of member I6
directly above the bottom member I? is incut to
form a square groove 20 which extends from one
side to the other side of element II.
Both forms of the apparatus include a lower
clamping'plate 2! which is of’ a size to abut the
rear face of base member I5 and to be flush
the stitching of the items together,

wardly of and in proximity to the ends of slot 24.
Associated with the upper ends of the screws 25
are clamping nuts 26 of the wing type. The
purpose of screws 25 and nuts 26 will be presently
referred to.
Both forms of apparatus include an upper
clamping plate 21 corresponding in width but
of less length than plate 2|. The rear portion of
plate 2‘! is formed with a rectangular cutout 28
having its side walls 29 positioned in proximity.
to the side edges of plate 27. The forward or
base wall 33 of cutout 28 is positioned between
the horizontal median and rear edge of plate 27.
C‘ountersunk in the lower face of plate 21 are
15 abutment bars 3| which extend from the front
edge and aligned with the rear edge of plate 2?.
The bars 3| are spaced from each other and are
arranged inwardly of and spaced from the side
walls 29 of the cutout 28. The distance between
20 the bars 3| is greater than the distance between
ber l6 forms a guide. By moving the plate 2|
horizontally and either drill thrown into opera
tion, the necessary number of spaced holes at the
desired points may be drilled in the stack 52, for
the passage of stitching or a binder to secure the
items of the stack together. The slot in plate 2|
and the cutout in plate 2’! provide superposed
clearances for the tool of the drill. After the 10
stack has been provided with holes, the plate 2|
is removed from the base, With the stack tightly
clamped and while clamped between plates 2|, 21
the items of the stack are secured together by
stitching. The slot in plate 2| and cutout in plate
2'! provide clearance for the stitching operation.
What I claim is:
1. In an apparatus for facilitating stitching for
the purpose set forth, a channel-shaped base
a bar and a side wall of the cutout. The bars
extend across the bottom of cutout 28 and are
open at each side and including a front and a
rear wall, a standard secured to the rear wall
and formed with a groove opening at its front
anchored to plate 21 by the holdfast means 32.
The plate 2'! is formed with a pair of spaced
face, a controllable slide adapted to be connected
to a drilling means, said slide mounted in the
aligned openings 32a arranged forwardly of and
in proximity to the side walls 29 of the cutout 28.
The apparatus shown by Figures 1 to 8 in
cludes a T-shaped vertically movable slide 33
mounted in the groove Ma of the standard I3.
The slide 33 has its head designated 34 and its
stem 35. The latter extends forwardly from the
front face of standard |3. The standard is is
formed at one side with a hollow lateral exten
sion 36 which has mounted therein and extended
therefrom a spring controlled latching device 3?
for releasably engaging in a pocket 38 (Figure 8)
formed in a side edge of head 34 of the slide 33.
The pocket 38 is arranged in slide 33 in proximity
to the upper end of the latter. When the device
31' is in engagement with the wall of pocket 38
the slide 33 is latched in its upper position.
Carried by slide 33 forwardly of the latter is a
hand operated drill 39 which is secured to the
45
tween the plates 2|, 21. The lower plate 2| con
stitutes a sliding platform. The rear base mem
stem 35 by the attaching devices 40.
The apparatus shown by Figures 9 and 10 in
cludes a T-shaped vertically movable slide 4|
which is mounted in the groove Ma of the stand
ard Id. The slide 4| has its head designated at 42
and its stem at 43. The latter extends forwardly
50 from the front face of standard M. Secured to
the front of stem 43 is an electrical motor 4%
which is to be connected with a source of supply
not shown. Secured to one side of the head 62
of the slide M is a laterally disposed arm $5 from
which depends an angle-shaped elevating and
lowering bar 156 for slide 4|. The bar 46 at its
lower end is pivotally connected, as at £51, to an
upstanding operating lever 48. The lower end of
lever Q8 is pivotally connected, as at 159 to one
60 side of standard M. Carried by and operated
from motor 134 is a depending drill 5!}.
The form shown by Figures 9 and 10 including
a latching means 5| is of the same form and ar
rangement as latching means 37.
With reference to Figures 1, 2, 9, and 10 a
stack 52 of items are shown in position to be
acted upon by the apparatus. The stack is
mounted on the lower clamping plate and posi
tioned against the forward face of the rear mem
ber 56 of base |2.
The upper clamping plate is
then mounted on the stack 52, and when so
mounted the screws 25 extend through the open
ings 32a. The nuts 26 are then engaged with
the screws 25 and secured to bind against the
75 plate 27 whereby the stack is tightly clamped be

removably mounted in the base for receiving the
work to be acted upon, said plate and rear wall

pable of being shifted relative to the base to posi
tion successive points of the work to be acted
upon by said drilling means and to remove the 35

plates, and said plates being formed rearwardly
of said coacting means with clearances for the
drilling means.
