Application January 24, 1938, Serial No. 186,737 2 Claims. (Cl. 117-1) This invention relates to improvements in sew In the accompanying drawings wherein for the ingmachine attachments, and has particular ref purpose of illustration is shown a preferred em erence to a device for twisting material. bodiment of our invention, the numeral 5 desig The principal object of this invention is to nates the hand wheel of an ordinary sewing ma produce a device of this character that can be chine. Some of these hand wheels have a groove readily attached and detached from a sewing in the outer surface thereof, over which a belt 5 machine, and a device which will accommodate runs, or in some instances, the electric driving the material being twisted after the twist has motor may drive through the wheel contacting been completed. the rim of the wheel. We have, therefore, pro 10 A further object of the invention is to pro vided four openings 6 through the wheel, which duce a device of this character which is simple openings receive the hooked ends ‘I of arms 8 to manufacture, easy to apply and one which may which are formed of four strands of wire twisted be quickly removed when the operation has been together, as at 9, and then formed with parallel completed. ' Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description. In the accompanying drawings forming a part of this speci?cation and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout 20 thesame, Fig. 1 is a side elevation of our device, as the same would appear when attached to a sewing machine; Fig. 2 is an end elevation of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4 is aside elevation of our device, showing the spool in cross section and partly removed; Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary detail view, 3 O showing the manner in which the twisted mate— rial is attached to the spool; Fig. 6 is a modi?ed form of our device; Fig. 7 is an end section of our device, looking 35 from the left hand end thereof; Fig. 8 is a modi?ed form of our device, showing the sliding clips; and i Fig. 9 is an end view of Fig. 8, also looking from the left of the drawing. There are many times when it is advantageous 40 to twist material to form braid, carpet material and the like. This is sometimes done by fasten ing the ends of material to be twisted to a door knob or similar fastening point, and to then twist 4 UT the material by hand gradually walking away from the starting point as the twisted portion in creases in length. This is a very tedious process, and does not give a uniform twist, and, therefore, We have produced a device that can be attached 50 to the ordinary sewing machine hand wheel, and by rotating this hand wheel through the custom ary movement of the sewing machine, we are enabled to easily and accurately twist material to any desired length and with a minimum 55. amount of e?ort. sections II, and then further twisted together, as at l2. The parallel sections I l engage the in ner surface of the spool hub I3. (See Figs. 3 and 4). This spool hub is provided with ends l4 and I6 and thus form an ordinary spool. A slot I‘! is formed in the end l4, and a hook I8 is secured adjacent thereto. When the spool is entirely upon the device the twisting point l2 projects beyond the outer surface of the spool of the end M. In the modi?ed forms shown in Figs. 6 and 7, the construction is identical with the exception that the hooked ends ‘I of Fig. 1 are reversed, so that they engage the outer periphery of the whee1'5, as indicated at A. The same numerals have been applied for the remaining parts. In the modi?ed form shown in Fig 8. the only difference is that we use sliding clips l9 instead of the wire hooks l, and employ a twisting point B which corresponds to the twisting point [2 of the preferred form of our invention. In use the device is attached to a fly wheel of a sewing machine, and the material to be twisted, as for instance the cord C of Fig. 5, is hooked over the hook I8 and brought through the slot l1 and into engagement with the twisting point I2. The machine is then started, and as a rule, the cord C will be twisted upon itself between the end of the spool and the point where it is being held by the ?ngers. As soon as this occurs, the operator leaves the twisted part upon the 4 spool and then proceeds with a further twisting operation. Thus by rapid twisting a long length of twisted material may be easily formed. It is to be understood that the form of our invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes relative to the material, size, shape and arrangement of parts may be re sorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims. 55 2 ' 2,130,969 _ Having thus described our invention, we claim:— . 1. In a device of the character described, a spool, means for securing said spool to a rotating member and in axial alignment therewith, said spool having a twisting point connected thereto and extending therefrom and in axial alignment with said spool, and means for holding material to be twisted by said spool, whereby rotation of 10 said spool wille?ect a'twisting of the material. 2. In a device of the‘ character described, a plu rality of wires secured one to the other, said wires having arms diverging and terminating in hooked extremities, the opposite ends of said wires ex tending in parallel relation and having their free ends in turn twisted together, whereby a spool mounted on said parallel portions will be held thereon, whereby rotation of said spool may be effected.
