Vertically disposed MULTIPLE COLOR THREAD DYEING DEVICE Claude C. Langston, 1701 W. Berry, Fort Worth, Tex. Filed Feb. 5, 1962, Ser. No. 171,111 5 Claims. (Cl. 68-27) bayonet slots 27 are formed in the forward face of the body 11 to accommodate the projections 26. A longitudinal channel 28 is formed in the upper sur— face of the base plate 20‘ and has felt pads 29 therein located beneath and to be contacted by the felt tips 25 of the dye markers 21. While the word “felt” is used herein, This invention relates to thread dyeing devices and is a continuation-in-part of my copending application Serial No. 108,637, ?led May 8, 19611. it is to be understood that other absorbent resilient ma The primary object of the preset invention is to provide 10 terial may be used in place thereof, after the pads 29 are a simpli?ed construction for selectively dyeing thread in place, the body 11 is secured to the base plate 10 by different colors. screws 30 as shown in FIGURE 2. Another object is to provide a multiple color thread Thread 31 from the spool 13 is looped about the tension dyeing device which has fewer working parts and one disc 18 and enters the body 11 through an end opening 32 which will not require cleaning as often as other devices for the same general purpose. which communicates with a longitudinal groove 33 in the bottom of the body and which groove connect-s wi?r op Another object is the provision of a thread tensioner posite sides of the small diameter bores 23‘.

The upper surface of the body 11 is provided with 60 logitudinally aligned bores 19' for slid-ably receiving cylin various ways within the scope of the appended claims. What is claimed is: 1. In a multiple color thread dyeing device comprising a body for mounting on the head of a shoe sewing ma drical barrels 20‘, which, in turn, receive commercially chine, said body including at least two vertical bores in available dye markers 21, such as those manufactured by side by side relation, dye marker assemblies slidably re Carter’s Ink Co. The dye markers 21 have tubular ceived within said bores, each said dye assembly includ bodies or reservoirs, not numbered, which are functionally 65 ing a cylindrical body and a depending marker felt, a base received in the barrels 211. Inwardly directed ?anges 22 plate beneath said body, means guiding a thread beneath in the lower ends of the barrels 20 locate the markers 21 said felts and guide means coacting said markers with for fully inserting the same in place. Smaller bores 23 said bores, said guide means of sufficient longitudinal in the body 11, and coaxial with the ?rst described bores movement to permit said felts to contact said thread. 19, receive the marker ferrules 24 and permit the felt tips 70 2.
