Referring now to the drawings wherein like reference
characters denote corresponding parts the improved seam
presser of this invention comprises a horizontally dis
posed cylinder or buck 10 having a heating element ‘11
therein. The buck 10 has one end free and the other

end secured to one face of a head 12 which is mounted
on the upper end of an upwardly sloping handle 13.
The buck 10 is on the face of the head remote from the
lower end of the handle 13.
This invention relates to electrical appliances for use
in the home or factory, and in particular a heated cy
lindrical b-uck having a hinged material retaining plate
at one side extended from a handle, whereby a seam 10
may be drawn through the machine between the buck
and plate for pressing seams of garments as the garments
leave a sewing machine.
A ?at plate 14 extends along the under side of the
buck 10 to the head 12. There'is provided a trigger
15 for-med integrally with the end portion of the plate
14 adjacent the head 12, the trigger 15 depends per
pendicularly from the plate '14- and has its lower end
The purpose of this invention is to provide a seam
portion bent away from the plate 14. A screw 16, ex
pressing machine by which a seamstress may press the
seams of a garment thereby making it possible ‘for the
seamstress to complete forming a garment without leaving
tending into the head 12, loosely secures the trigger 15
to the head 12 for movement of the plate .14 toward and
away from the underside of the buck 10. A spring 17
is operatively connected to the trigger 15 and biases it
the sewing machine.
At present, after sewing a garment, it is necessary for
the seamstress to carry the garment to an ironing board 20 toward the buck 10. A stand is provided and includes
a horizontally disposed base plate 18. An L-shaped

A further object of the invention is to provide a seam
pressing machine which is of a simple and economical

has one end thereof engaging a bushing 24 on the head
12, and the extended end of the buck is provided with
an inclined surface 25.
An inclined surface '27 is pro
vided on the upper portion of the tip providing a minia~
ture electric iron.
The bushing 24 is contingous to the outer surface of
a web 28 which is spaced ‘from the head by a slot 29.
