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

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

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.

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

When the top II) is in one position on the buck,

but when the top is removed and reversed, the

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.
The catch 3| acts as a lock for locking the
respective tops and the pads carried thereby in the
(35 desired operative position, but by a strong pull on
the handholds 26 and 21 catches 3| will move out
and permit the top and its pad to be removed.
