As explained in said Edwards patent the'design
may be impressed upon the shoeupper-section or
similar article of sheet material, by a marking
plate, on which‘the desired’ pattern is formed by
25 bosses punched from the material of- the plate
and disposed in lines, rows or; other arrangements
to delineate ‘the pattern. ‘The marking plate is
then impressed upon the shoe upper section or
other piece of work to be marked,‘with a-trans
30 fer sheet against the opposite’ side of work, and
the pattern displayed by thebosses will then be
printed or impressed on?the work.’ A similar
method may be used withoutthe transfer sheet
for merely embossing a‘ piece of leatheryin which
case the marking plate will be embossed in- ac

guideways or grooves I2 within which the work

mounted to slide forward and backward into and
out of operative position with relationto a recip
20, roeable plunger or press member 52, carried by
the frame II. The platen I3 is provided at its .
front end with a handle I4 by which it may be
manually moved back and forth along the ways
I 2. In the drawings the piaten I3 is shown occu
25 pying its outermost position away from the press
member, in which position the machine is at rest.
The free
or projecting margin of the strip 33 is transverse 15
ly slotted at intervals, as best shown in Fig. 8,
to provide a row of spring tongues 34 each of '
which is embossed to provide a rounded boss or
projection 36 upon its under side (Figs. '7 and 8). .
The marking plate, which is detachably secured 20
to said rock-shaft, is shown at 3‘! and is prefer
ably made of a piece of sheet metal such as gal
vanized iron, embossed or otherwise formed to
provide marking projections or bosses 38 on its
under side (Figs. 8 and 9).
The marking plate 25
31 is of such shape and size as to enter the recess

above the top surface of the body I5 of the platen. ‘The bar 32 forming part of the holder for the 35
cardboard or similar sheet material and provided
marking plate is cut‘ away or stepped upon its
inner under side to provide a groove 4i between
the bar and rock-shaft 21 into which the. lip 40 of
near each corner with a small aperture reinforced
the marking plate is inserted. Along the margin
Resting on top of the platen I5 is a removable
work-positioning plate 2| preferably made of
by an eyelet 22, each eyelet being adapted to be
?tted upon the upwardly projecting reduced end
' 20 of one of the plungers I9. Thus the plungers
I9 serve to hold the work-positioning plate 2|
in a de?nite position on top of the platen I5 so
that it will not be displaced laterally but can
readily be removed when desired. The work-po-p
of the marking plate 31 near the step 39 there is 40
provided a series of'holes or sockets 42, each of
which is adapted to receive and engage one of the
projections 36 on the tongues 34 (Figs. '7 and 10)
when the marking plate is attached to the holder.
In assembling'the marking plate on the holder 45
the lip’ 40 is inserted in the groove 4| and the
sitioning plate 2! is made with a cut-out or re
plate then pushed home, whereupon the spring
cess 23 (Fig. 8) so shaped as to receive and prop
tongues 34 will yield until the projections 36 snap
into the sockets 42. In removing the marking
plate from its holder it is necessary only to pull
it forcibly outward, the spring tongues 34 yield 50
ing to release the projections 36 from the sockets
42. Thus, the projections and sockets serve both
to position the marking plate accurately on its
erly to position the pieceof work to be marked,
' such as the vamp or forepart of a shoe upper 24,
or other piece of sheet material.
As herein il
lustrated thercut-out 23 of the work-positioning
plate 2| is formed withv opposite ,side edges 25,
25 to engage the opposite side edges of the, sheet
article 24 to positionthe same laterally, and with
end edges to engage‘ the outer end of the article
'24 thereby to position the same longitudinally.
It is not necessary that the cut-out 23 should ex
actly conform in all respects to the shape of the
article. to be marked but it must be of such shape
and dimensions that it will receive the article to
be marked and will ?t it su?'iciently closely at a
su?lcient number of points to position it de?nitely
and accurately to be properly operated upon by
65 the marking plate. It will be understood that for
each different shape and size of article to be
marked a different work-positioning plate 2| will
be used having a cut-out adapted to the size and
shape of the work in question.
Near the inner end of the platen‘ I5 (Figs. 2,
'5', 8 and, 11) is a marking plate holder indicated
generally at 26, comprising a transversely dis
holder and also detachably to secure the marking ‘
plate to the holder so that it can readily be re
moved and replaced by another marking plate of
different pattern. It will also be apparent that
if desired two or more marking plates can be at
tached to the holder side by side at the same time,
which is sometimes desirable in impressing a plu 60
rality of patterns on. different parts of the article
to be operated upon.
, Alongside of the rock-shaft. 21 and parallel
thereto is a take-up spindle 43, on which is
wound one end of a transfer sheet 534 extending 65
from a supplyspindle 45, on‘ which is wound a
supply roll 45a of the transfer sheet. The trans
fer sheet extends across the body I5 of the platen
and then underneath the rock-shaft 21 to the
