STRAND FORMING nEvIoE
Thomas H. Clack, San Francisco, Calif.
Application July 14, 1937, Serial No. 153,553 7 Claims.
(.01. 28-1) “
This invention relates ‘generally to improvements in weaving looms, and has particular ref-
and 3, and these spindles carry the spools of cot
ton or hemp twine, which are used in fashioning
erence to weaving looms for the purpose of pro-
the rug.
ducing rag rugs, or thelike. ~
The primary object of the invention is to produce a wire loom of this character that is very
‘cheap to manufacture, and that takes the place of
the usual wooden frame for this purpose, in
present use.
10 Another object of the invention is the provision
‘
,
'
A hook I4 is formed on the upper end of the
upright H and tensioning loops l5 extend up- 5
wardly from the brace section 9, these parts being
all welded together as a unit.
1 It will now be observed that when spools of
cotton or hemp twine areplaced uponthe spindles
l3 with a looped end thereof placed in the ‘hook I‘, 10
of a loom of the character set forth that is com-
and the intermediate ‘ sections thereof are fed
posed of wire spot-welded together to form the
through the tensioning loops or members l5 that
loom frame.
A further object of the invention is to provide a
15 weaving loom having a spot-‘welded metal frame
the device is ready for the weaving of a rug, such
as a rag rug.
So called “Persian loops” or knots are formed 15
in which is included means for tensioning the
cotton or hemp cord during the operation of
weaving.
A still further object of the invention is to pro20 vide a simple weaving frame of‘the character set
forth, that is. light in construction and that may
be easily and quickly produced, and is designed
primarily to supplant the more expensive wooden
frame at present utilized for the purpose.
Other objects and advantages of the invention
will be apparent with reference to the subjoined
speci?cation, and the accompanying drawing, in
in the twine by means of small sections of rags
which draw the sections of the twine together
progressing from the hook ll toward the tensions
ing loops, I5.
When that section of the rug is formed it is 20
withdrawn from the hook l4 and moved outward
lyand a new section is formed between the hook
l4 and the tensioning loops l5 and this operation
is continued until sufficient material is woven to
form the rug.
25
After this material has been woven, the strip
is coiled and stitched to form the rug. This op
eration, as described, is the usual method of
forming this type of rugs, and is well known in
which:-—-

Figure 1 is a plan view of my improved
loom,
, 30 showing the general con?guration thereof:
Figure 2 is a side view of the device turned on
its end; and
Figure 3 is a rear elevation of the same.
It has‘ been the general practice heretofore in
35 the weaving of rugs, such as rag rugs, to do this
, weaving on a wooden loom of a somewhat ex-
pensive and cumbersome character. These looms
warp due to weather conditions, and are therefore
very unsatisfactory in this respect.
40
I have therefore, produced a metallic loom,
'
30
It will thus be observed that I have provided
a loom for the purpose set forth that is light in
weight, is compact, and that may be cheaply
constructed from ordinary wire, spot-welded to
gether to form a compact loom frame, and one 35
that will resist varied weather conditions.
I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of
the United States, the following:
1. A strand forming a device of the class described, comprising a frame, a hook at one end of 40
preferably constructed of wire, the sections of
said frame, spaced twine supporting spindles
which are spot-welded together to form the
various elements constituting the loom frame-
mounted on the other end of said frame, and '
twine tensioning means supported on the frame
Referring more speci?cally to the drawing in
45 which the preferred form of the invention is dis-V
closed, the loom frame comprises an upper Ashaped wire frame 5, having downbent sections or
legs 6, and additional sections‘! inwardly bent as
50
the rug weaving art.‘
indicated at_8, and a cross brace section 9.
A supporting loop I0 is formed at one end of the
frame and is welded byan upright I I to the main
frame 5 and additional supporting loops I! are
welded to said frame at the opposite end thereof.
Spool or ball supporting spindles l3 are formed
55 centrally of the loops l2 .as shown in Figures 2
between said spindles and said hook.
2. A strand forming device of the class de- 45
scribed, comprising a support, a strand support
ing means at one end of said first named sup
port, stationary twine supports ?xedly mounted
on the other end of said support, and spaced
twine tensioning means located between said 50
spindles and, said strand supporting means.
3. A device for forming a braid of textile ma
terial from strands of twine or, the ‘like com;
prising a frame, means supported by said frame
for releasably holding the completed portion of 55
2
2,112,895
said braid, and guide means supported by the
frame for holding the strands to be braided
in spaced relationship and converging toward the
portion of said hook facing substantially away
?rst of said means.
4. A device for forming a braid of textile ma
terial from strands of twine or similar material
said frame, two tensioning devices comprising
comprising a frame, means supported by said
frame for frictionally and releasably holding
the strands for forming the braid in spacedrela
10 tion to each other and in angular relation to
said braid being formed, and means also sup
ported by said frame and spaced from the ?rst
of said means for releasably holding the said
braid.
15
5. A device for forming a braid of textile ma
terial from strands of twine or the like com
prising a frame, means supported by said frame
for releasably holding the completed portion of
said braid, at least one strand support mount
20 ed on said frame in spaced relation to said means,
and tension means supportedby the frame for
creating tension on that part of said strand be
tween the ?rst of said means and said tension
means and for holding the strands in spaced
relation and converging toward the ?rst of said
means.
6. A device for forming a braid of textile ma
terial from strands of twine and rags, or the like,
comprising a substantially A-shaped frame
30 formed of bent and welded wire, a hook also
formed of bent wire secured to said frame sub
stantially at the narrow end thereof, the open
from the broad portion of said frame, a trans
verse wire secured across the broad portion of
pieces of wire secured to said‘transverse wire, 5
said tensioning devices being adapted and ar
ranged to engage and releasably hold the strands
of twine when said strands are passed there
through, and to hold said strands substantially
apart, and two upstanding spindles formed of 10
bent wire rigid with the broad portion of said
frame.
7. A device for forming a braid of textile ma
terial'from strands of twine and rags, or the like,
comprising a substantially A-shaped frame
formed of bent and welded wire, a wire hook
secured substantially at the narrow end of said
frame, the shank of said hook being welded to
said frame, the open portion of said hook facing
substantially away from the broad end of said 20
frame, a transverse .wire rigidly secured across
the broad portion of said frame, tensioning de
vices welded to said transverse wire, said ten
sioning devices including two coiled pieces of
wire spaced from one another, the coils of which 25
are adapted and arranged to engage the strands
of twine when ‘said strands are passed there
through, and two upstanding spindles also formed
of bent wire rigidly secured to the broad portion
of said frame.
