' loop which extends over the end wall of the main When, however, the sleeve-ironing board is to be main cover‘ in order to retain the cover in taut board adjacent'the recess. Also,‘ if desired, an elastic tape may be secured to the edges of the position ‘while the'inain board is being used. When, however, the supplemental board is to be employed, the cover is‘ merely slipped over the end‘wall of the main'board, and the elastic tape used, a novel padded cover is slipped from‘lthe main body of the board to an advanced position ’ at one end of the board, at which time the sleeve ironing board may be quickly ‘and easily raised draws the covering in the direction of the op to elevated position where it may be employed for ' ironing sleeves and other ‘tubular portions ofigar ments. 7 ‘ I 15 - _ Ironing boards having sleeve-ironing attach ments have been known, but they have been gen’ erally unsatisfactory for the reason that when in retracted position relative to the main body of the board, a smooth, unbroken surface for such board was not maintained, and accordingly dur posit'e end of the board, thus exposing the supple mental board, which is then raised to elevated position by a pair of novel links having a ‘paral lelogram motion, the links being arranged to have an OVer-the-center locking action. The main cover is thus completely out of the way, and the sleeve-ironing board may then be used while rigidly supported in this upper position. ing the ironing operations ridges were formed in v Another object of the present invention is to when the covering for the latter board is secured ‘ in place no recess exists. Also of importance in the‘present invention‘ is ' ing the free end of the cover or pad in released provide an ironing board of the character de the articles being ironed. In accordance with the present invention, the‘ main board is formed with 25 “scribed which is simpl'e'and inexpensive to con struct, and which may be used withvfacility. a longitudinal recess or slot extending inwardly In the drawing: from the larger end of the board substantially Fig, 1 is a top plan view of one embodiment of half its full length. The sleeve-ironing board is the present invention, the view showing, in dotted, formed with precisely the same contour as that lines, the position of the supplemental sleeve of the recess, except that it has slightly smaller ironing board in retracted position, the view dimensions so that when the vpad coveringthe sleeve-droningv board has been removed, a slight v'further showing the pad structure covering the entire board. ~ space exists between the outer marginal edges of Fig. 2‘ is a plan viewsimilar to Fig. 1, but show; the sleeve-ironing board and the recessjalthough position, exposing the sleeve-ironing board.
