The invention relates to steam pipe connec
tions for steam-heated pressing irons.
An object of the present‘ invention is to im
prove the construction of steam pipes for feeding
steam to and exhausting steam from a steam
heated pressing iron and to provide simple and

Referring particularly to the form of the in
vention illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2 of the draw
ings, I designates a steam-heated pressing iron
connected by the steam pipe connections herein
after described to steam supply and exhaust pipes
2 and 3 and mounted for the various necessary
comparatively inexpensive steam pipe connec
tions adapted to permit easy movement of a
pressing iron longitudinally and transversely of
movements over an ironing table it by any suit
in a circular or elliptical path and also adapted
to be moved upwardly and downwardly to enable
the raising and lowering of the pressing iron to
the ironing table 4, lateral movements across the
table, and circular and elliptical movements as
able means which will permit an upward and
downward movement of the pressing iron, back
an ironing board or table as well as movement 10 ward and forward movements longitudinally of
well as a pivotal movement on a vertical axis to
place the same on the work and to lift it there
