Chester, Kingston, N. Y. Application May 1, 1937, Serial No. 140,258 1 Claim. (01. 223-40) This invention appertains to new and useful improvements in apparatus for facilitating the inverting or turning of belts, ties, cuifs and vari ous other tubular structures. The principal object of the present invention is to provide a novel apparatus whereby a tubular article can be turned inside out in a single con venient operation. Another important object of the invention is to provide a device whereby tubular articles can be turned inside out regardless‘of whether the articles are open at their ends or closed. Other important objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent to the reader 15 of the following speci?cation. In the draWings:—-— Figure 1 represents a front elevatlonal view of the apparatus. 20 ‘ Figure 2 is a side elevational view. Figure 3 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view taken substantially on the line 3-3 showing an article thereon in the act of being turned. Figure 4 is an enlarged sectional view on the line 4—4 of Figure 1. Figure 5 is an enlarged horizontal sectional 25 View on the line 5-~5 of Figure 1.‘ , Figure 6 is a side elevational view of the push rod with parts in section. Figure '7 is a side elevational view of the blunt 3O ‘ extension for the rod. Referring to the' drawings wherein like numer als designate like parts, it can be seen that nu meral 5 represents a post or standard which can be mounted on a table or elsewhere in a con venient manner and this post has the split clamp 35 6 at its lower end portion projecting laterally thereof. This clamp includes the side lugs 1-4 held together by the screw 8 and this clamp structure bears on the split bushing 9 which sur rounds the vertical barrel lll adjacent its lower 4O end and supports the barrel in a vertical posi tion. An L-shaped member I I is secured to the upper portion of the post 5 and has an opening there 4 through, thus serving as a guide for the chain 12. A pair of guide brackets |3--l4 are provided adjacent the intermediate portion of the post 5 and through these guide brackets l3-l4 the push rod i5 is slidably disposed. A collar l6 having a set screw l'l feedable 50 therein is adapted to be ?xed in any desired place on the push rod l5 by driving the set screw l1 against the rod l5. ‘ The collar I6 is provided with the socket I8 for receiving the laterally dis- > 55 posed end portion a of the pull rod l9 which ex tends downwardly through the guide 20 and is provided with a hand knob 2| at its lower end. A coiled compressible spring 22 is interposed between the collar [6 and the guide bracket II, and from the upper end of the rod l5 extends the aforementioned chain l2 to pass over the pulley 23 at the upper end of the post 5. This chain IZ passes downwardly through the guide eye 24 at the back side of the post 5 and connects to the upper end of the coiled extensible spring 25, which spring is anchored as at>26 to the back side of the post 5. 10 As is shown in Figure 6, the lower end of the rod I5 is provided with a threaded socket 21 for receiving the upper threaded and reduced end of .either the attachment 28 or the attachment 29. The attachment 28 has the needle-like extension 30 for engaging the edge portion of a tubular article at one end of the article where the article is provided with open ends, while the attachment 29 is provided with a blunt end 3| which simply engages against the closed end of the tubular article as shown in Figure 3. In operating the machine, it will be observed that the spring 25 will hold the rod I5 in the ele vated position shown in Figure 2. The article to be inverted is now slipped over the barrel l0 and the lower end of the corresponding attachment 28 '25 and 29 is engaged with the upper end of the arti cle. The knob 2| is now grasped by the opera tor and pulled downwardly so as to cause down ward movement of the rod IS. The rod I5 will push the tubular article downwardly and through 0 the lower end of the barrel Ill, thus the article is inverted in a simple and convenient manner. While the foregoing speci?cation sets forth the invention in speci?c terms, it is to be understood that numerous changes in the shape, size and materials may be resorted to without departing 5 from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter. What is claimed is:— 40 A device for turning tubular articles compris ing a supporting member, a bracket carried thereby, a cylinder supported by the bracket, a push rod, brackets for supporting the same from the support in longitudinal alignment with the cylinder, a rod slidably supported on the support and having a handle at one end for sliding the last-mentioned rod, means for adjustably con necting the other end of the last-mentioned rod to the push rod, a pulley carried by the support at that end which is remote from the end part carrying the cylinder, a spring connected to the rear face of the support and a ?exible member , having one end connected with the spring and its other end connected with the push prod, the ?exi- 55 ble member passing over the pulley.
