(01. 38-66) This invention relates to attachments for press ing machines, and particularly to a removable top and pad for the bucks of pressing machines used in pressing shirts and other articles, an ob ject being to provide a construction whereby a top and pad carried thereby may be quickly applied or removed at any time. Another object is to provide a top for the bucks of pressing machines which is formed of metal 10 and with various? parts for receiving a pad so that when the top is slid into position the pad will also be? slid into operative position. An additional object is to provide a demount able metal top for the bucks of pressing. ma 15 chines wherein there is presented a metal body more or less arc-shaped and'formed with turned over ends forming grooves adapted to receive the lower edges of a buck when the top is slid into position. 20 ' In the accompanying drawings: Fig, 1 is a perspective view? showing a part of a pressing machine ready to receive the tops forming the invention; Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a collar top 25 adapted to be used on the central buck shown in Fig- 1; Fig. 3 is a side view of the collar buck shown in Fig. 1 with a top and pad mounted thereon; Fig. 4 is: a view'similar to- Fig, 3, except that 30 a cuff buck with a top and pad is disclosed; Fig. 5 is an enlarged front view of one of the cuff bucks shown in Fig. _1; - Fig. 6 is an edge view of the structure shown in Fig. 1, certain portions being broken away; Fig. '7 is a detail fragmentary perspective ?view 35 on an enlarged scale of part of one edge of the buck shown in Fig. 5, said view? illustrating how the retaining pins are mounted. Referring to the accompanying drawings by 40 numerals, l indicates a pressing machine of any This required quite an appreciable time and therefore was more or less objectionable. In the present invention means have been provided whereby the padding used on the bucks. may be quickly applied and removed at any time so that the pressing machine is substantially never out of operation. In order to secure these desired results there have been provided metal members known as demountable tops, and on. these metal members have been arranged suitable padding. The tops may be slid into position at any time on to the bucks and also may be slid cif of the bucks at any time. As shown in Fig. 2, the top 4 is of sheet metal and is substantially arc-shaped. A yoke ex 15 tension 5 is also provided. It will be noted that the body of the top 4 is bent at the respective ends so as to present inwardly facing channels 6 and 1 whereby the device may slide on the lower end edges of the collar buck 8. The cuff top 9 is identical with the top 4, except that it is shaped to ?t the respective cuff bucks l0 and ll. Also the extension 5 is not provided on the top 9. The top 9 is preferably of a size to completely fit the top of the buck ID or H, while the top 4 is substantially half as wide as buck B. In pressing machines of this kind only the front half of the respective pads is used, and consequently it is only necessary to make the top 4 and the pad carried thereby half the width of 5? buck 8. The top 9, however, and the pad car ried thereby are the full width of the respective bucks I!) and l I. When the tops are mounted in position, as shown in Fig. 5, they may be used until the front half becomes unusable by reason of the deposit of starch. The tops with their pads are then slid off, reversed, and slid back into position so that the rear? half is now the front half and the machine may then be used in the usual manner. ? desired type, as for instance the type shown in The top 9 is formed with an abutment I3 which Patent No, 2,059,295. The machine I is provided is riveted, welded, or otherwise rigidly secured with lower bucks 2 and upper bucks 3. The upper bucks 3 are always heated and sometimes the 45 lower bucks 2 are also heated, although in many cases they are left unheated. The particular 40 in place. It will be noted that there is an abut ment l3 at each end of the top 9 so as to limit the pad ?I.

On top of this body is arranged preferably two However, it- is to be noted that on the various lower bucks padding is used when the machine is in use. Heretofore this padding was applied directly to the bucks and when the same became ?lled with starch or other matter it was neces sary to stop the machine and rather laboriously layers of fabric l6 which may be cotton, wool, or the like. On top of the layer I6 the covering layer ll of muslin or other fabric is provided, and forms a ?nishing cover which is held in place by the respective rows of pins I8 and I9 carried by the respective removable bars or holders 20. Each bar 20, as shown in Fig. 7, is provided with 55 55 remove the old padding and apply new? padding. 2 2,136,564 a recess 2| for receiving the head 22 of the re spective pins. These pins are preferably bent downwardly so that there will be no tendency of the covering |'| slipping off. The bar 20 may be Wood, metal, ?Bakelite,? or other material, and is slidably mounted in a holding plate 23 which has inturned edges 24 and 25 forming facing grooves. The plate 23 may be riveted or otherwise rigid 10 ly secured to the abutment | 3 so as to form a part of the top.

It is, of course, understood that other forms of looks or means for holding the top in position could be used without departing from the spirit of the invention. Also other forms for holding the cover I?! could be used, but it has been found de sirable to use the pins I8 as shown in Fig. 7 be cause it is easy to remove any injured vpin and 10 supply a new one.

' In order to lock or hold the top 9 in place, the 20 buck I0 is provided with notches 28 and 29 in each end. The turned-in ends of the top 9 carry springs 30, as shown in Fig. 6. One end of these springs is riveted to the top 9, while the other end is formed with a V-shaped part 3| projecting through an opening 32 whereby the part or catch 3| may snap into one of the notches 28 or 29. When the top II) is in one position on the buck, member 3| will be in the respective notches 28, but when the top is removed and reversed, the 510 catch 3| will snap into the other notch 28 on the respective sides. It will be understood that the description of buck I0 and top 9 and associated parts apply to buck | I. 03 Lil Also it will be understood that the con struction of top 4 is identical with top 9, except that it ?ts the buck 8 and isprovided with the yoke extension 5 for ironing the yoke of an ordi nary shirt while the collar is being pressed in the regular way. The respective ends of the top 40 4 are made identical with that shown in Fig. 5 and therefore will need no additional description. However, the yoke extension 5 is slightly different in that the respective sides 33 and the end 34 are bent down so as to receive the respective plates 23. These plates and associated parts function as illustrated in Figs. ,5 and 7. The cover I?! used on the pad mounted on top 4 will have the respective ends engage the pins in the plates 23 at the respective sides and the side 50 of the cover moved over end 34 so as to engage the pins carried by plate 23. This arrangement maintains the cover taut over the entire padding. It is to be noted that in Fig. 2 the-padding has been omitted, but when applied it will be identical with that shown in Fig. 5, except for the part that extends over the yoke extension 5. ?In Fig. 3 it will be observed that the cover I ?i? has the part 35 engaging the pins on the end plate 23. Also it will be noted from Fig. 3 that the top and the pad | 4' carried thereby only cover approximately half of the buck 8. In Fig. 4 the pad |l| covers the entire buck, as described in respect to Fig. 5.
