This invention relates to machines for adhe
sively attaching strips to insoles and particularly
to machines for attaching ribbed strips to insoles
to provide sewing ribs thereon.

United States No. 2,326,119, granted August 10,
the margin entirely. Preferably and as illus
trated, said means is mechanically connected to
themeans for hammering the inner margin of
the strip so that, when the knife is given its full
stroke to remove‘the margin of the strip, the
hammering means will be ineffective and thus
sticking of‘ the several pieces of the strip to the
insole will be prevented.
As a further feature of the invention, the illus
proved machine of this type by which ‘strips hav 10 trated machine is equipped with a knife for sev
ing wide inner ?anges may be satisfactorily ap

operation which acts from the inner portion of
the insole, the wide ?ange may be so handled as

to avoid the formation of wrinkles therein.
