after described. Two vertical guide posts or rods
20 are rigidly secured to the base plate near the
front thereof and are disposed between the lever
bars I9, the posts being spaced transversely of the
base plate. A bracket 2l of inverted U-'Shape
is rigidly secured to the base plate to straddle
The present invention relates to apparatus for
turning or inverting gloves andthe like, as for
placing seams thereof on the inside. .
.An object of the invention is to provide an
improved apparatus of simple and durable con- .
struction for expeditiously turning ,gloves and
mittens without danger of tearing or other injury.
Another object is to provide a glove turning
apparatus which is adapted to operate simultane
the lever bars i9 and has a horizontal top por-~
tion withl spaced openings 22 in register with the
posts. Spaced upright frame bars 23 are rigidly
secured to the 'base plate rearwardly yof the
bracket 2| and at opposite sides of the lever I9,
and are suitably braced on the base plate. The
frame bars 23 are rigidly connected by cross-bars
ously on a plurality of finger sheaths.
A further object is to provide an apparatus
which by simple modification can operate on
either gloves or mittens.
'
'
A still further object is to provide a power
