’
'
Figs. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 are diagrammatic views
illustrating progressively the means for and the
manner in which the projecting portion of the
upper maybe out-turned and the sole applied to
the lasted upper over‘such out-turned portion;
Figs‘. 9 and 10 are sectional views on a larger
position, and the sole applied thereto.
My present invention comprises improved sole
applying mechanism and the method of operat
ing the same, which mechanism may be used
with the improved sectional mold and the means
associated therewith for holding ‘a lasted upper
therein, set forth in my pending applications ?led
October 9, 1930, and October 31, 1931, Serial
Numbers 487,535, and 572,342, respectively.
In'the present instance I have provided means
for out-turning the portionof the upper pro
jecting above the last when the latter with such 30
upper in pulled-over and stretched condition is >
clamped to or within a suitable support or the
mold referred to; means for applying a sole to the
out-turned portion of the upper and to which
such sole is subsequently ‘stitched; means for
clamping the sole to such out-turned portion, and
means for releasing the sole clamp from carrying
mechanism so that it maybe ‘held in position‘
with respect to a support (or the mold) receiv
ing the lasted upper until the sole has set. The
mechanism for effecting these several operations
is disposed centrally above the support‘ for the
lasted upper or the sectional mold and in such
operative position with respect thereto thatit
may be lowered into position by the operation 45
of means manually or mechanically actuated,
with supplemental means for actuating the out
turning mechanism operated independently of
the mechanism employed to lower such out
turn'ing mechanism and apply the sole clamp-i ”
ing mechanism.
.
The lasted upper in pulled-over and stretched
condition is placed in a suitable support that will
hold the upper in the pulled-over and stretched
condition on the last and while this support may
2
2,132,440
be of any nature that will maintain the upper
to the ?ange 3| of the same. ' When this hand
‘ in this condition and toy which it may be clamped,
I prefer to employ a sectional mold such as that
lever 33 is raised, the lower ends of the depending
levers 32 are moved in, andwhen the hand lever
36'is lowered, the lower ends of the levers 32 are
moved out to a position substantially that indi
cated in Fig. 2.
In the present instance, the levers 32 are six
in number, and they are disposed in such position
that the out-turning means, carriedrby the lower
described in the pending applications referred
to. In this condition, the upper has a portion
projecting above the last all around the same,
and in carrying out one part of my present in
vention, this projecting portion is to be out
turned and ?attened down with respect to the
1.0 last so that the sole may be applied thereto.
A table, carrying a suitable support or the sec
tional mold referred to and indicated at [0, is
shown at H; such support, orthe sectional mold,
receiving a last A, with an upper B, pulled-over
15 and stretched thereon. When the sectional mold
ends of the same and hereinafter described, may
be properly positioned to accommodate them
selves to various parts of the projecting portion 1)
of ‘the lasted upper that is to be out-turned.
Each of the levers 32 carries at its lower end a
box-like member 40, supporting ‘a series of spring
pressed resilient or ?exible ?ngers 4 I, four in the
upper, levers l2, as in the structure set forth in‘ present instance, which ?ngers are spaced apart
my pending applications before referred to, serve . in the manner indicated. These ?ngers are pref
to hold the sections of said mold in clamping erably in the form of slender wires. As the con
position with respect to the upperpulled-over and struction is the same in each instance, only one 20
stretched upon the last contained within the of the box-like members carried at the‘ends of
the levers 32 will be described. The ?ngers 4|
same. These levers H.’ are held in clamping posi
tion by springs I3, and a treadle M is employed are carried by a cross-bar 42, journaled in the
to retract such levers to permit opening of the side walls of the box-like member, and such
sectional mold when it is desired to remove the cross-bar is held by springs 43 so that in their
lasted upper to which the sole has been applied normal or' inactive position, the ?exible ?ngers
é! project downwardly as clearly illustrated in
after the latter has been ?nally clamped in posi
tion. The lasted upper has been deposited in the drawings, being held against undue move

extending from a bracket |5a carried by the table interposed between the arm 41 and the yoke 44
I0 is employed for the reception of the lasted
to a point some distance above the latter. The
upper end of the standard I5 may carry a sup-'
port IT, in the present instance in the form of a
plate, and this plate serves for the reception of
means to which links and levers employed with
the mechanism forming the subject of my present
invention may be attached.
Centrally disposed above the mold ID or other
support receiving the lasted upper, and suitably
j ournaled and/ or guided in bearings 20 carried by
the plate H, is a vertically movable rod or shaft
2|, preferably counterbalanced by a weight 22,
to which it may be connected by a chain or cord
23 passing over pullies 24 supported by the plate
ll. This rod or shaft 2| may be raised and
lowered manually, and for this purpose I provide
a lever 25, connected to said rod at 26, and ful
crumed at 21 to a swinging link 28, which may
be pivotally connected to an arm 29 supported by
the plate |'|. It will be understood, of course,
that I may employ other means for raising and
lowering the rod or shaft 2|, and that power
means, ?uid pressure for instance, may be em
ployed to effect this movement.
’
The vertically movable shaft or rod 2| carries a
carrying such box-like member.
-
The levers 32 are lowered with respect to th
sectional mold I!) or other support in which the
lasted upper is mounted, with the ?ngers 4| in 40
the inwardly disposed position as shown in Fig. 4,
and the inner and free ends of the ?ngers may
contact with the sole portion of the last inwardly
of the projecting portion b of the upper, as shown
by broken lines Fig. 14. This positioning of the
?exible ?ngers 4| may be effected by lowering the
levers 32 by pulling down the vertical shaft or
rod 2! (upon operation of the lever ‘25). To
bringthe ?ngers 4| into ?nal position for effect~
ing the out-turning of the projecting portion b
of the upper, as shown in Fig. 6, which operation
is e?ected just before the sole is applied to the
lasted upper, the following mechanism may be
employed. Pivotally mounted on the plate I '| is a
lever 5|], fulcrumed at 5|, and the end of this lever ,
is connected at 52 to a link 53, the opposite end
of such link being connected at 54 to a lever‘55,
pivotally connected to the plate I‘! at 56, while
the opposite end of said last-named lever is con
nected at 5'5’ to a link 58, which is connected at (it)
its lower end to a treadle 59. The lever 25 carries
?xed collar 36, having a ?ange 3|, which may be
a latch 6?,'having'a projecting pin 6|, and this
of substantially the same contour in plan as the
pin-carrying latch may be actuated by a trip
consisting of a handle 32, pivotally connected ‘at
mold |ۤ or other support receiving the lasted
upper, and this ?ange supports a plurality of de
pending levers 32, pivotally connected therewith
at 33, which levers may be swung on their pivots
toward and from said rod 2|. To eifect this
movement, this rod may carry a movable collar
34 of the same character as the collar 30, to which
these levers 32 are connected by pivotally mount
ed and adjustable links 35.
The collar34 may
be raised and lowered by means of. a hand lever
36, which is iulcrumed at 31, to ailink 38, piv
otally connected at 39 to the ?xed collar 3|? or
.70
63 to the grip of the lever 25, and a wire or other "
connecting element64 connected to the latch 60;
a spring 55 being employed to restore the latch 6|!
with its pin 6| to normal position. When the
lever 25 is pulled down to lower ‘the levers 32,
the operator pulls down on the handle 62 and
through the means noted, the pin-carrying latch
6!] 'is raised so that the pin 6| may pass the end
of the lever 50. When it is desired to impart fur

fore the rod or shaft 2| vis ?nally'lowered to re
lease the latches 69 so that the plate 66 may be
clamped to the 'mold, the hand lever 36 is raised,
and this action swings the levers 32 on their
pivots and withdraws the ?exible ?ngers 4|.v 'As
these ?ngers are withdrawn fromra position such
as that‘illustrated in Fig. 6, they pull or out-turn
and press down the projecting portion b of the
upper’and lay the same over the‘top of the sec
tional mold or other support for the lasted upper.
The clamping plate 66 is now to'be lowered into
place. Before this plate is lowered into contact
with the mold and the lasted upper therein, a sole
mold or other support and then, upon raising said
rod or shaft 2| byv operating the lever 25, the
sole-applying and clamping means will be lifted.
The mold is then opened and the lasted upper
with the sole cemented‘ thereto is removed, and a
fresh lasted upper in pulled-over and stretched
condition is placed in the mold; the sections of
the latter are closed around the same, and the
steps of applying a sole after the projecting por
tion of the upper has been ?attened down proceed
in the manner heretofore described.

'
As it may be desirable at times to release the
latches 69' from the bar 68, thereby permitting
removal of the clamping means ‘from the rod‘ or
shaft 2|, I may provide a loose collar 80, mounted
Cgof the desired‘size', having itslunder surface
