This invention relates to winding machines and
‘ more particularly to an improved sizing device for
‘ arresting the operation or the machine when the
package being wound reachesa predetermined

vide a sizing device for controlling the stopping
mechanism of the machine to cause it to act with
promptness and precision .to arrest the winding

use with a conventional type of winding machine
having a positively driven spindle on which the 15
package is wound. It is to be noted, however,
that the improved device may be adapted for use

Under present day practice it is desirable for cer
tain purposes, for example, in producing .cops for
dyeing, to wind the packages “soft”, that is under
light tension and pressure so that the yarn mass 40
will be porous for the penetration of the dye
thereinto.
V
‘
For this method of winding it is essential that
the thread-guide shall bear against the package
with only a light pressure and it has been found 45
that with the usual sizing device the force re
quired to release the det'ents to actuate the stop
ping mechanism causes a considerable pressure to
be exerted on the guide and by the guide against
the package. As a result the mass of yarn in the 50
package is liable to be crushed and the whole
package distorted, frequently causing bulging at
its ends and displacement of the coils of yarn
therein which prevents free delivery of the mate'
rial in unwinding. To obviate this di?iculty and
2,116,458
‘
overcome the disadvantages of previously used
sizing devices the present invention contemplates
gird-slot connection indicated by dotted lines at
the employment of a knock-oil’ member which is
A pair of radially-extending spring-arms 29 se
cured to the web of the pulley ii are arranged
with their angularly-bent ends adapted to slide
over beveled faces 30 at one end of the sleeve 21.
These spring-arms 29 have the effect to urge the
pulley I5 into engagement with the clutch l6 to
release its ?ange 23 from engagement with the
arm 26 of the lever 22 whereby to prevent fric 10
displaced in position by a light, gentle contact of
the guide-carrying frame therewith to cause it to
be actuated by a going element of the machine
to positively release the detents whereby to initi
ate the functioning of the stopping mechanism.
With the present device, practically no pressure
10 is applied to the thread-guide. during the actu
ation of the stopping mechanism and therefore
soft packages may be wound without danger of
crushing or distorting the yarn mass therein.
Referring now to the drawings, the machine
15 herein described and illustrated comprises a box
like frame 2 having bearings for mounting a hor
izontal winding-spindle 5 on which the package
is wound. Journaled in bearings below the wind
ing-spindle 5 is a cam-shaft 8 carrying a helical
20 cam, not herein shown, for reciprocating the
thread-guide HI which traverses the yarn on the
package. Pivoted on the cam-shaft 6 is a trav
erse-frame 8 which supports the thread-guide
III to adapt it to reciprocate longitudinally of the
25 winding-spindle 5 and to move away therefrom
with the growth of the package as it is wound
on the spindle. The thread-guide I0 is fast at
the end of a traverse-bar or rod l l which slides in
grooves l2 extending longitudinally of the trav
30 erse-frame l, and rising from the traverse-frame
is a backing plate I! along which the guide slides
during its reciprocatory motion.
The traverse-frame 8 carries a thread-bail l4
across which the yarn 11 leads as it feeds through
a notch or slot in the thread-guide III, by which
it is traversed from end to end of the package
being wound. A tension-device, indicated at 1
in Fig. 1, is usually provided for applying resist
ance to the draft of the yarn as it feeds from its
supply to the thread-guide Ill to be dispersed
thereby in layers which build up the package onv
the winding-spindle Ii. The machine may be
driven from any suitable source of power by a
belt, gearing or other means and, as herein
45 shown, power is applied to the winding-spindle
5 through a driving pulley l5 and clutch i6 illus
trated in Fig. 8 of the drawings. A belt I‘! con
nects the driving pulley IS with a motor or other
suitable prime-mover to transmit power to the
machine. The clutch I6 is fast on the rearward
end of the winding-spindle 5 and the driving
pulley I5 is slidably engaged therewith to oper
ate the machine, or released therefrom to arrest
the winding operation, by means as next de
55 scribed.
Supported in bearings at the top of the ma
chine frame 2 is a horizontal rod or rocker-shaft
20, on the forward end of which is fixedly mount
ed a starting handle or lever 2|. Fast-on the
rearward end of the rod 20 is a two-armed lever
22, shown in detail in Fig. 9, adapted to cooperate
with a tapered ?ange 23 on the end of the hub
24 of the driving pulley 15 to shift the pulley lon
gitudinally of its axis. One 'arm 25 of the two
armed lever 22 has a beveled face adapted to en
gage the beveled side of the ?ange 23 to slide
the driving pulley l5 into engagement with the
clutch l6; while the second arm 28 has a similar
70 beveled end adapted to engage the opposite bev
eled side of the ?ange 23 to withdraw the driving
pulley l5 from engagement with the clutch It.
The hub 24 of the pulley l5 slides on a sleeve or
tional contact between these parts during the ro
tation of the driving pulley. The construction
and method of operation of the present clutch
device are the same as shown and described in
United States Letters Patent No. 834,778 of Octo 15
ber 30, 1906, and will therefore not be described
more speci?cally herein. Sufllce it to state that
as the lever 22 is rocked by the rod 20 in a clock
wise direction, as viewed in Fig. 9, its arm 25 will
cause the pulley I5 to be engaged with the clutch 20
ii to drive the spindle 5; whereas, when the lever
22 is rocked in the opposite direction its arm 26
will act to withdraw the pulley from engagement
with the clutch It to release the drive and arrest
the operation of the machine.
25
A helical spring 3| connected to the arm 26 of
the lever 22 and anchored at 32 to a part of the
machine frame 2 tends to rock the lever to with
draw the pulley from engagement ‘with the
clutch It; the lever 22 being rocked in the oppo 30
site direction to connect the drive to start the
operation of the machine by means of the handle
or starting lever 2| on the rod 20. The rod 20
and lever 22 are normally maintained in position
with the driving pulley l5 engaged with the 35
clutch it under the control of a pair of detents
shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3 of ‘the drawings. A
sickle-shaped arm 35 reaches downwardly from
the starting lever 2| and is formed at its end with
a shouldered detent 36 adapted to engage a 40
notched detent-shoulder 31 on the upper arm 18
of a pivoted quadrant-shaped lever 40.
The
lever 40 is pivoted at 4| to the side of the ma
chine frame 2 and its arcuately-shaped portion
42 normally extends in concentric relation to the
cam-shaft 8. The under side of the quadrant
42 of the lever 40 is formed with a tapered groove
43, see Fig. 5, which is engaged by the end of
a dogging lever 45 pivoted to the traverse-frame
8.
The dogging lever 46 acts to resist the return -
of the traverse-frame toward the winding-spindle
5 after .the guide It! has been forced outwardly
therefrom by the growing package, this being a
usual form of construction in machines of the
present type. A finger-lever 46 connected‘ to the 55
dogging lever 45 may be employed to manually
release the latter to permit placing the thread
guide against the core of the package to start
the winding operation.

~To effect prompt stopping of the machine a 60
brake-disk 4l,'indicated by dotted lines in Figs.
1 to 3, is usually provided on the spindle 5, being
adapted to be engaged by a brake-shoe 48 carried
by an arm SI of the starting lever 2|. It will be
understood that the cam-shaft 6 is driven from 65
the winding-spindle 5 through the means of gear
ing or a suitable belt, in accordance with the
usual construction, and the elements of the ma
chine as above-described are illustrated and de
scribed with greater particularity in United 70
States Letters Patent No. 801,941 of October 17,
1905. In this prior patent the means for arrest
ing the operation of the machine when the pack
bushing 21 which is free to rotate on the spindle
age reaches a predetermined size consists in a
I, the pulley being keyed to the sleeve by a pin
wedge-block or member 49 adjustable along the 76
,‘
2,116,453
quadrant 42 of the lever 40 and having a beveled
portion adapted to be engaged by a shoulder or
ledge 9 on the traverse-frame 8 to lift the outer
end of the lever 40 to release the detents "and 31.
As before indicated, such a wedging engagement
between the traverse-frame 8 and the wedge
block or element 49 has the e?ect to resist con-
derlie the slotted lug B6 on the lever-arm I6. A
screw ~15 having a knurled head 16 reaoheadown
through‘the slot 61 in the lug 66 with its threaded
end screwed into a tapped hole 13 in the lug'iZ
and projecting therefrom to receive a check-nut
TI. Surrounding the screw 15 and held under
tension between the two lugs 66 and 12‘ is a
tinued movement of the thread-guide away from helical spring 18, the upper end of which bears
the axis of the package and thereby causes the ' against a washer 19. With the two parts of the
member 55, that is ‘the lever-arm 56 and the 10
10 guide to exert an abnormal pressure against the
package.
The present invention avoids the use of the
above-described wedging means by employing a
relatively light, pendant, knock-off member, in
15 dicated generally by the numeral 55, which is
rocked by the traverse-frame 6 to cause it to
engage a going part oi’ the machine to positively
lift the lever 40 to release the detents. For ‘the
sake of simplicity and to adapt the present device
20 for general application to winding machines in
use without alteration in the structure thereof,
the standard wedge-element 49 is utilized as an
adjustable mounting for the pendant knock-0E
member 55. As shown in Fig. 5, the element at
25 is preferably constructed of sheet-metal or bar
stoclr bent at right-angles to overlie the top oi
the quadrant n and looped around thereinunder
with an upwardly-extending portion engaging in
the groove it of the quadrant. A set-screw m
30 threaded through the upper portion of the mem
ber W is adapted to be set up against the top of
the quadrant ti to hold the member in adjusted
position thereon.
Referring more particularly to Figs. d and 'l
35 of the present drawings, the member W is prel
erably made in two parts which are adjustable
in relation to each other for a purpose later ex
plained. Its main portion consists of a lever-}
arm at having an offset portion at its upper end
40 i'ormed with a hole till i’or mounting it on a pivot
stud or bearing hub at. The hub ht protects from
the side of a disk as in eccentric relation to the
axis thereof and has a bore ht which is centered
axially of the disk. The hub dd passes through
the hole bl in the lever-arm db and is held with
its end abutting the side of the element lit by
means of a screw ti inserted through its bore bill
and screwed into said element, see Fig. 5. By re
leasing the screw ti the disk ht may be turned
50 thereon to vary the position of the axis of the
eccentric hub W on which the lever-arm dli
rocks; it being noted that the periphery of the
disk at is knurled to facilitate this manual ad
justment. The depending portion of the lever
55 arm at is twisted at at to position its lower end
at right-angles to its main portion and extending
laterally from this end of the arm is a projection
M which serves merely as a weight to counter
balance the member in its suspension. Projecting
60 forwardly from the hole til in the member bit is
vary the distance between the lugs 66 and ‘i2 '
whereby to adjust the position of the arm 10
with respect to the lever-arm 56; after which 15
the nut H is tightened to'iock the parts in ?xed
relationship. The arm 10 isformed on the under
side of its rearward end with an arcuately shaped
cam-face or edge 80 adapted to be engaged by
the shoulder 9 on the traverse-frame 8 as the 20
latter swings outwardly with the growth in the
winding. The arm ‘W is slltted at M and the
slltted portion of the metal bent to one side to
form a stop 82 which engages against the edge
of the member til to locate the arm. with its 25
cam-race Mi in position to be engaged by the
shoulder d on the traverse-frame d. The lever
arm. 5% of the member‘ 55 is thus supported in
angular position extending downwardly and
rearwardly towards the cam-shaft b.
from. The wheel M is a standard part of the 35
winding machine, being‘provided tor the purpose
of engaging a stop-lever or drop-wire til pivoted
to the end of the quadrant M oi the lever db and
normally suspended by the strand of yarn y feed
ing from the tension-device "l to the thread 40
guide it. When the yarn breaks, or its supply is
exhausted, the drop-wire $5 is tilted by the action
oi gravity to cause its inner end to engage the
periphery of the wheel M. The wheel 83 rotates
in the direction indicated by the arrow in Fig. l,
and when the drop-wire 85 is engaged therewith
it will rock the lever Mi upward to release the
detents 36 and all which maintain the driving
pulley iii in connection with the clutch iii. The
present sizing device operates in somewhat the 50
same manner as next explained.
To start the machine the lever or handle it
is rocked in a clockwise direction, as viewed in
Fig. 1, to cause the lever 22, see Figs. 8 and 9, to
shift the driving pulley it into engagement with 55
the clutch it; the arm 35 of the lever iibeing
thereby rocked downwardly to engage its detent
shoulder at‘: with the detent ill on the quadrant
lever 4b to maintain the stopping mechanism
inactive. During the operation, of the machine 60
the yarn y feeds upwardly across the thread-bail
thereto and formed at its end with a laterally
it and through the slot or notch in the thread
guide it which is reciprocated longitudinally of
connecting the lever-arm 5b with its companion
member.
'
.
The companion'member associated with the
member 56 is in the form of a cross-arm ‘Hi hav
ing its central portion provided with a hole ‘H
70 corresponding to the hole 51 in the lever-arm 55
to adapt it to be arranged alongside oi the latter
and pivoted therewith on the hub 58 of ‘the disk
59. At the forward side of the hole ‘ii the arm
‘ill is formed with a laterally-extending lug ‘ii
76 bent at right~angles thereto and adapted to un
30
Mounted fast on the outer end of the cam-shalt
ii is a going member illustrated in the form oi
a dislr or wheel at having its periphery serrated
or formed with teeth or cogs dd projecting there
an arm 65 having a lug Eli bent at right-angles
extending slot bl which serves as the means for
65
cross-arm ‘l0, pivoted on the hub 58 as shown in
Figs. 4 and 5 the screw 15 may be adjusted to
the spindle ii to traverse the yarn on the pack
age. The cop or package C is usually wound on 65
a ?ber or paper tube t secured to the spindle b
and as the layers of winding are deposited in
place the thread-guide ill is caused to recéde
.from the spindle with the traverseJrame 8 rock
ing on its pivot on the cam-shaft 6. The 70
traverse-frame 8 is balanced by a counter
weight it, see Fig-'1, and in some cases by
other means, to apply a light pressure to the
thread-guide it to maintain it in contact with
the surface of the package Cand during the 75
4
2,110,453
receding movement of the guide from the spindle
I during the growth of the package the traverse
frame is prevented from jumping or vibrating by
the action of the dogging lever II in the usual
manner as well understood by those versed in'
the art.
The sizing device forming the subject-matter
of the present invention is adjusted to adapt it to
be actuated immediately the thread-guide II has
the knock-off occur too soon, however, that is
before the package reaches its desired size the
screw ‘II may be adjusted to locate the end of the
lever-arm II farther .away from the periphery
of the knock-oil’ wheel 83. The winding opera
tion is thus arrested immediately the package
reaches its predetermined size and due to the
pendant or ?oating suspension of the knock-off
moved away from the winding-spindle I a dis
member II practically no pressure is applied to
the thread-guide iii. In other words, the move 10
tance corresponding to the desired size of the
package, that is, its radial .dimension. For an
ment of the traverse-frame 8 as it engages the
cam-surface on the arm 10 of the member II is
initial, approximate adjustment of vthe pendant
member II on the lever II the'traverse-frame I
15 is swung outwardly to place the thread-guide I I
in a position corresponding to that which it will
assume just before the package reaches the de
sired size. The element ll is then slid along the
quadrant 42 of the lever ll to locate the member
20 II in such position that the cam-face or edge I!
on the arm ‘III is engaged with the shoulder 8
on the traverse-frame I so that further move
ment of the traverse-frame will act to rock the
arm ‘II upwardly; the element 48 being then fixed
25 in position by tightening the set-screw I0, see
Fig. 5. The screw II is next loosened and the
disk II rotated thereon to adjust the effective
length of the lever-arm II of the member II to
compensate for inaccuracies in manufacture of
30 the parts of the device. This adjustment serves
to position the lower end of the lever-‘arm II in
proper relation to the periphery of the knock-off
subject to practically no resistance and conse
quently no pressure ‘is applied to the thread
guide iii to cause it to bear too heavily against
the surface of the package. Stated briefly, the
sizing device operates without increasing the
pressure of the thread-guide against the package
so that even though the latter may be soft and
spongy its shape will not be distorted or the yarn 20
therein crushed and injured.
‘
) It will be observed from the foregoing that the
present invention provides a novel and efllcient
means for arresting the operation of the winding
machine when the package being wound reaches 25
a predetermined size without causing malforma
tion- of the package or injury to the material
therein. The device is simple in structure, prac
tically proof against derangement or getting out
of order, and in its present form of construction 30
it provides an attachment or ?tting which may
be applied to machines of standard type already
wheel 83 to insure that when the lever engages _ in use without change in the construction and
the wheel it will not ride up onto the top of-the arrangement of the main elements thereof.
While the present sizing device is herein shown 35
35 wheel and remain suspended thereby to prevent
it from swinging back under the action of grav
as embodied in a preferred form of construction,
ity. This adjustment is important, for if the by way of example, it is to be understood that
pendant member II is not returned to initial various modifications may be made in the struc
position after the arrestment of the winding upon ture and arrangement of its parts without de
40
completion of each package it will ‘fail to act at , parting from the spirit or scope of the present in 40
the completion of the next package ‘wound on vention. Therefore, without limiting myself in
this respect, I claim:
the machine.
The final micrometer adjustment of the sizing _
1. In a winding machine, the combination of
device is made with the screw ‘II. By tightening stopping mechanism therefor, a going member, a
45 or loosening this screw the lugs II and ‘I! on the
members II and ‘Ill, respectively, may be drawn
together or caused to be spread apart by the
spring 18 whereby to locate the lower end of the
lever-arm II in such position that it will be
quickly engaged by the periphery of the knock
off wheel 83 when the arm ‘III is rocked upwardly
by the engagement of the shoulder 9 on the
traverse~frame I with the cam-face III of the
arm. In other words, this last adjustment sets
55 the device for prompt action immediately the
package C has reached its predetermined diam
eter; the traverse-frame I having then been
caused to move outwardly to such an extent that
the engagement of its shoulder l with the cam
60 face III lifts the arm ‘III to a very slight extent.
It will be understood that when the end of the
lever-arm II engages the periphery of the wheel
I! it will be caught by one of the teeth 84 there
on and thereby the arm I6 is pushed upwardly
to lift the quadrant 42 of the lever 40 to release
the detents II and 31.
Upon release of the detents II and 31 the
spring 3|, see Fig. 9, is energized to rock the lever
22 to move its end 26 into engagement with the
70 beveled side of the ?ange 23 to withdraw the
driving pulley II from the. clutch II. As the
lever 22 is rocked under this action the rod II
is rocked with it to cause the brake-shoe ll to
engage the disk 41 on the winding-spindle I to
insure a prompt stopping of the machine. Should
