10 Claims. (Cl. 101-—42)
This invention relates to an apparatus for cut
ting sweatbands.
According to accepted‘ practice sweatbands are
?rst rough cut in substantially equal lengths. It
;; is-then necessary to cut the and sections to re
duce the sweatbands to different lengths or sizes
to be incorporated. in hats proportioned to fit
heads of various sizes.
Because of the fact that the sweatband is-the
10 actual head contacting element of the hat it is
very important that it be accurately cutto size.
For example, should‘ a sweatband presumably cut
to a size‘71/2 actually be of a larger size the‘ba‘nd
would pucker in the hat and cause the same to
1:; improperly ?t a head of the‘ wearer. On the
cludes a means for placing a proper indicia of
size on the sweatband' prior to its removal from 15
the apparatus.
Accordingly, a feature of‘the invention resides
in providing an apparatus which‘ not only may be
adjusted to accurately cut sweatbands the different selected sizes, but which also includes a
sweatband size stamping mechanism which: is
Various methods and. apparatus have been
heretofore proposedv for accurately cutting the
disadvantages of having to keep on hand a large
number of forms, which may become lost or
misplaced, are obvious. .
It‘ is an object of the present invention to pro
30 vide a single apparatus which may be‘ readily
adjustedtoaccurately cut sweatbands to different
selected sizes or lengths.
Another object of the invention is to provide
such a single apparatus which may not only be
adjusted to cut sweatbands to different lengths
but‘ which may also be adjusted to cut to different
tapers so that the generally frusto-conical shape
of the ?nished and sewed together sweatband
may be varied. I

It is; therefore‘, another object of the invention
to provide an apparatus‘which‘ not only may cut
rough sweatbands. to selected: sizes’ but which in
a smaller size than presumed‘ it would‘. bind the
hat and likewise cause the same to improperly
rough out sweatbands to selected and standard
sizes. One of the most commonly used prior
methods involves the use of a separate cutting
form for each size of sweatband to be cut. The

In the cutting of sweatbands, as practiced with
the use of separate forms, it is necessary not only
to have a separate form for each size but also a
separate form in each size for each of the de
sired tapers.
A feature of the present invention, therefore,
resides in providing a single. apparatus having
means for supporting and accurately locating
automatically adjusted to‘ apredetermined posi-_
tion‘ to place an indicia of the. selected size onv the
sweatband.
Another feature of the invention resides in
providing‘ an apparatus adjustable to‘ cut sweat
bands in divers selected sizes and which auto‘
matically stamps indicia sizes on the sweat
bands.‘
Another‘ feature of‘ the: invention‘ resides ml the 30
provision“ ofa novelmeans' for ?rmly holding or
clamping the sweatband. in position‘ relative to
the cutting'means.

Referring more particularly to the drawings,
and ?rst to Figs. 1, 2, 2A, and 3, for the present
preferred form of apparatus for thus cutting a
sweatband to a selected size and for stamping
the same with an indicia of size, there is dis—
10 closed a base plate 20 having suitably secured at
one edge thereof, as by screws, a ?xed cutter bar
2| having a cutting edge 22.
Carried by this base plate 20 is a sweatband
supporting means 23 for locating and supporting
15 the sweatband relative to the ?xed cutter bar 2|
and a cooperable movable cutter 24.
Of importance, the sweatband supporting
means 23 is movable toward and away from the
cutting means 25 constituted by the ?xed bar 2|
and movable cutter 24 to thus control in a man
ner to be hereinafter described in detail, the size
of the sweatband to be cut. This supporting
means 23 includes a pair of laterally spaced for
wardly extending arms 26 and 21 between which
is carried a sweatband locating strip 28 curled
ated into head sizes corresponding to the gradu
ations on the scale 42. For guiding the control
lever 44 an overlying holding bar 68 is provided,
secured to the front bar. A block 49 connected to
the slidable bar 33 by a pivot screw 58 and engage
able with the side walls of the slot 5| in the con 10
trol lever 44 provides a pin and slot connection
to operatively associate the latter and the slid
able bar. By this connection when the pointer
lever 44-43 is moved to indicate a selected gradu
ation on the scale 41, for example 71/2, the walls
of the slot 5| con?ne the block 49 and concur
rently move the slidable bar 33 and associated
sweatband locating and supporting means 23
to such a position relative to the cutting means,
25 that upon actuation of the latter the sweat- g
band is accurately cut to the selected size.
To insure that there will be no inadvertent ad
verse shifting of the sweatband supporting and
locating means 23 after being adjusted for a de
sired selected size, and to most accurately posi

pivoted supporting plate 3| with the superposed
end sections of the band extending beyond the
?xed cutting edge 22. The arms 36 and 2'! are
35 by pin and slot connections 32 secured to a bar
pointer lever 44—46.
For actuating the movable cutter 24 there is
advantageously provided an actuating lever 54
comprising an upper portion 55 having a grooved
section 56 receiving the cutter 24 which is ?xed
thereto, as by screws 55’, and a connected lower 35
33 slidable toward and away from the cutting
edge 22. The sliding movement is on the support
ing plate 3| which rests on the base plate 2|] and
is pivotally connected thereto by a pivot screw
34 positioned closely adjacent the ?xed cutter
bar 2| and substantially in alinement with a stop
‘plate 35 suitably secured to the rear edge of the
strip 28 which locates the folded sweatband rela

the same as it is moved toward and away from
the cutting means 25 there are provided parallel
front and rear bars 36 and 31 ?xed to the pivoted
plate, as by screws, and having shoulder sections
38 and 39 which overlie shoulders 40 and 4| and
engage the sides of the slidable bar .33.
Of importance, there is provided on the front
bar 36 a scale 42 graduated into a plurality of
55 head sizes and with which there cooperates an
indicating pointer 43 secured to the sliding bar.
With this arrangement, when for example it is
desired to cut a sweatband to a selected size of
71/2 it is merely necessary to fold a rough cut
60 sweatband in the middle and slip the same on the
arm 26 and beneath the locating strip until the
rear edge thereof, which is the bottom of the
?nished band, engages the stop plate 35 which
arrests movement of the band in predetermined
65 position longitudinally of the cutting edge and
alines the edges of the band; to then move the
slidable bar 33 carrying the sweatband locating
and supporting means 23 to a position where the
pointer 43 indicates the scale graduation of 71/2,
70 and to then actuate the cutting means 25 to
sever superposed end sections of the folded sweat
band.
For thus moving the slidable bar 33 in such a
manner that a sweatband may be cut to a selected
75 size there is preferably provided an operating or
a laterally extending section 53 which may be en
gaged by the foot of the operator.
'
For supporting the movable cutter 24 there
is provided a pivot stud 59 having a head 68,
inserted through suitable alined holes 6|, 62 and
63 in the grooved section 56 of the actuating le~
ver 54, in the movable cutter 24 and in a lug
64 on the cutter bar 2|. A coiled spring 65 po
on and a washer E58 yieldingly draws the pivot
stud 59 and associated movable cutter 24 to the
left, as viewed in Fig. 1, to cause a proper shear
ing relationship between the latter and the ?xed
cutter bar 2|.
'
To insure a ?rm gripping of the end sections
of the folded sweatband to prevent an inad
vertent shifting thereof during the cutting op
eration there is provided a clamping plate 69
movable downwardly to clamp the sweatband
against the ?xed cutter bar 2| concurrently with
and during the initial cutting movement of the
movable cutter.
For thus controlling the clamping plate 68
there is provided a bell crank it pivotally sup
ported at ‘El on an upstanding member
suit
ably secured to the ?xed cutter bar 2|.
One arm 13 of the bell crank extends for
wardly and has formed therein a slot 14 for re
ceiving a slide block 15 having a guide groove
16 therein. Connections between the clamping
plate 69 and the bell crank 10 is achieved by a
clamp bar 'i'l having a longitudinal slot 78 in
which is positioned a slide block 19 with a pin
extension 35 pivotally .connecting the latter to 0
the slide block 15 and bell crank arm 13. A
coiled spring 3| in the slot '48, interposed be
tween the slide block ‘f9 and the bottom wall
of the slot ‘E8 serves to transmit downward clamp
ing motion of the bell crank arm 13 to the clamp 76
2,142,339
bar 11 and clamping plate ~69. Upward move
ment is achieved by engagement of the» slide
block ‘l9 with the upper wall of the slot 18. Pref
erably, and as shown, a guide pin 82 for the
spring 8| is inserted in the slot ‘I4 and extends
through holes 83 and 84 in the upper and lower
Walls of the slot ‘I9.
Another arm 85 of the bell crank ‘I0 extends
downwardly and has secured thereto on a pivot
stud 86 a roller 81 engageable by the movable
cutter bar 24_as the latter is actuated; A spring
85 connecting the lug B4 and an extension 89
on the bell crank arm 85 normally maintains the
clamp bar T1, in upward and inoperative posi
tion.
In the operation of the device, when the mov
able cutter bar 24 is actuated, as by the lever
54, the rearward portion of the cutter bar moves
upwardly to engage the roller 81 and. through
20 the bell crank 10 and coiled spring 8| move the
clamping plate 69 into a downward and opera
tive position. This clamping action takes place
during the initial movement of the cutting bar
24. Further movement of the cutting bar causes
additional movement of the bell crank, but this
is absorbed by the compression of the clamp
bar spring BI. When the cutting bar 24 is re
turned to its initial position the spring 88 auto
matioally moves the clamp bar ‘I’! and plate 69
to an upward and inoperative position.
A guide plate 90 overlies and con?nes the clamp
bar 'I‘I in a groove 9| in a forward extension of
the lug 04 to guide the clamp bar as the latter
is moved downwardly and upwardly into op
erative and inoperative positions.
In order that a given sweatband may be read
ily and accurately marked with a size indicia
corresponding with the selected size to which
it is out, there is' provided a size stamping means
40 92 which is adjustable concurrently and automati
cally with the adjustment of the sweatband lo
cating and supporting means 23 in a selected
position with respect to the cutting means.
As shown, this size stamping means 92 includes
45 a supporting disk 93 rotatably supported on a
stud 94 extending upwardly from a lug 95 on
the pivoted plate3l and fitting in a hole 96 in a
‘downwardly projecting central bearing section
97 of the disk 93. The lower face of the bearing
50 section 91 rests on the top face of the lug 95
to properly position the disk 93 vertically with
respect to the pivoted supporting plate 3I.
Positioned circumferentially of the disk 93 are
a plurality of size stamping members 98 having
55 type 99 formed on or secured thereto designating
respectively the various head sizes set out in the
scales 42 and 41. Each of these size stamping
membersr98 includes in addition to a type carry
ing head I00 located below the disk 93, a shank
60
portion IOI extending upwardly freely through
a hole I02 in the disk and terminating at the
upper end in a cap I03 from which projects a
tab I04 having thereon an indicia corresponding
to the type head I00 at the lower end of the
65 member. Springs I05 positioned on the shank
portions IOI between the caps I03 and lugs I06
on the disk 93, normally urge the stamping mem
bers 98. to the upper inoperative position shown
in Fig. 2. Cross pins I01 in the lugs I06 and
70 extending through longitudinal slots I08in the
shank portions IOI serve to prevent the stamp
3
means 92 concurrently with the adjustment of
the sweatband locating means 23 there is con
nected, as by a screw, to the slidable bar 33,
a gear rack I09 cooperable with a pinion gear
H0 suitably ?xed to the downwardly extending 5
bearing section .91 of the disk 93. The relation
of the gear rack I09 and pinion gear H0 is such
that movement of the size controlling lever 44
to any selected size on the scale 4‘! will cause .
a movement of the disk 93 just sufficient to place 10
in printing position a sweatband stamping mem
ber having a type thereon corresponding to the
selected size. When the locking pin 53 on the
size controlling lever 44 is inserted in a locking
hole 52 to lock the latter in fixed relation With
the pivoted plate 3| it concurrently locks the
size stamping means 92 from inadvertent turning
from the selected position.
With the stamping means 92 thus locked in a 1
selected position the stamping member 98, in the 20
forwardmost position and overlying the sweat
band may be depressed, as by manually striking
the cap I03 thereof with a ?nger, to cause the
type to impress a proper size indicia of the sweat
band prior to its removal from the apparatus.
The type may be formed with sharp faces so
that the size indicia is actually cut into the
sweatband. Preferably, however, and as shown,
an inking roller II! is provided for inking the
type of the selected stamping member prior to .30
its ?nal actuation to impress or imprint the'in
dicia of size on the sweatband.
.Of‘ importance a- novel means is provided, con;
trolled by the cutter actuating lever 54, for wip
ing the inking roller III across the type of the
selected stamping member.
For thus controlling the inking roller I II there
is provided an actuating member H2 having an
L-shaped rear section H3 carrying a roller H4
engageable by the bell crank extension 89, and a A
forward section H5 connected to a yoke member
H3 supporting the inking roller I I I. Support of
the actuating member H2 and inking roller III
is accomplished by a plate IIl having a section
H8 clamped to the upstanding member ‘I2 and
having a section H9 extending to the left, as
viewed in Fig. l, to which are secured guide plates
I20 which con?ne for free sliding movement the
actuating member H2. If desired a plate‘ I21
may be secured to the section H9 to overlie and 50
guide the roller carrying L-shaped section H3 of
the actuating member H2. A spring I22 con
nected to the actuating member H2 and to the
lug 64 serves to normally maintain the inking
roller HI in the forward position shown under~
lying the forwardmost stamping member, and to
maintain the actuating roller H4 in engagement
with the rear of. the bell crank extension 89.
Thus, when the bell crank ‘I0 is actuated
through its connection with the movable cutter 60
bar 24, the inking roller is moved rearwardly to
wipe the forwardmost and selected stamping
member 98 which may then be depressed to print
the proper size on the cut sweatband.
By the operations thus far described, it is pos 65.
sible to out a sweatband to selected sizes and to
stamp the selected size on the cut sweatband.
However, in these operations the sweat-band is
cut to but one taper. In practice it is desirable
to cut sweatbands not only in differentv sizes but 70
also in different tapers to meet varying require
ing member from turning and thus maintain the
ments. Thus, in certain instances it may be de
respective type heads H10 in- set and predeter
sired to cut a sweatband to a relatively small
vtaper so that the, generally frusto-conical shape .
mined relation with respect to the disk.
For. automatically adiustine; the. size stamping
of; they ?nished and, sewedv together sweatband 75
4
2,147,389
will not be very pronounced, while in other in
stances it may be desired to cut a sweatband to
relatively greater taper to make the frusto-coni
cal shape of the ?nished sweatband more pro
nounced.
To thus control the taper of the sweatband,
the pivoted supporting plate Si is adjusted to
divers positions so that the angle of the cut may
be varied. To accurately set the supporting plate
3I and associated sweatband supporting means
23 in selected positions where the sweat-band may
be cut to standard tapers, there are provided in
the base plate 23 a plurality of locking holes I23
which respectively correpcnd to graduations on
a taper scale I24. A lever pointer I25 secured
to the pivoted plate 3I provides a convenient
means for adjusting the pivoted plate, and is
provided with a locking pin I26 which may be
inserted in a selected locking hole I23 to posi~
tively set the sweatband and its supporting means
in the selected angular position relative to the
cutting means.
Guiding and holding screws I2'I on the base
plate 20 and extending through arcuate guide
slots I28 in the pivoted plate 3| serve to guide
the latter and to maintain the same in proper
association with the base plate.
Of importance, and as heretofore explained,
the pivot screw 34 of the pivoted supporting plate
30 is placed closely adjacent the ?xed cutter bar 2!
and its cutting edge 22. In the absence of such
a close positioning of the pivot screw 34 to the
cutter bar 2|, the effect of the angular shifting
of the pivoted plate 3I and associated sweatband
c. 01 supporting and locating means 23 would be to
appreciably alter the setting for selected size cut.
By having the pivot screw 34 close to the cutting
means the effect of the taper adjustment on the
size setting is minimized to such an extent as to
40
be negligible.
In the operation of the complete apparatus,
a rough cut sweat-band having a length greater
than the standard length required in hats, is
folded in the middle and slipped on the arm 26
and beneath the sweatband locating strip 28 with
the superposed end sections extending over the
?xed cutting edge 22. In this position the sweat
band is clamped by the portion 30 of the locating
strip, the rear edges of the upper and lower folds
are in abutting relation with the stop plate 35
and the middle of the folded sweatband engages
the arm 26.
The pivoted supporting plate 3I is then set for
a cut of selected taper by adjusting the same to
the desired angular position, as by movement
with the pointer lever I25 and insertion of the
locking pin I26 in selected locking hole I23.
To adjust the sweatband supporting and locat
ing means 23 laterally relative to the ?xed cut
60 ting edge 22 the control lever 44 is moved arou
ately until the pointer 46 thereof is opposite the
scale graduation of selected size, whereupon the
locking pin 53 is inserted in a selected locking
hole 52 to lock the sweatband and its supporting
and locking means 23 in ?xed relation to the
cutting means. Simultaneously the size stamp
ing mechanism 92 is automatically adjusted to
bring a stamping member 98 bearing the selected
size indicia into the forward postion over the
70 inking roller.
Movement of the cutter actuating lever 54 then
causes the clamping plate 69 to clamp the super
posed end sections of the sweatband adjacent the
cutting edge 22 and concurrently causes a cut
76 ting movement of the movable cutter 24 and a
31 GI
wiping of the type of the selected stamping mem
ber 98 by the inking roller III.
The selected and automatically positioned and
inked stamping member 98 may then be de
pressed as by an operator’s ?nger and the out Cl
sweatband is marked with an indicia of size.
If desired and as shown in Figs. 4 and 5, a
slightly modi?ed stamping mechanism I29 may
be utilized in which a means I30 is provided for
mechanically depressing a selected stamping 10
member 98 concurrently with the actuation of
the movable cutter 24 and in which a somewhat
different inking means I3I is provided.
Apart
from these two features the construction and op
eration of the stamping mechanism disclosed in
Figs. 4 and 5 is exactly the same as the mech
anism shown in Figs. 1 and 2.
The automatic and mechanical means I30 for
depressing a selected stamping member 98 in
cludes an L-shaped actuating member I32 se
cured to the bell crank arm ‘I3 and movable up
wardly and downwardly therewith upon the ac
tuation of the cutter lever 54. The forward end
of the actuating bar I32 is positioned to overlie
a selected stamping element 98 when the latter
is in a predetermined forward position, and is
provided with a contacting section I33 which
when moved downwardly will depress the selected
stamping element and move the same downward
ly to an operative position where an indicia of 30
size is placed upon the sweatband.
To supply ink for a selected stamping element
there is provided an inking ribbon I34, similar
to a standard typewriter ribbon, carried on and
between a pair of rotatable winding spools I35
and I36. One of the spools I35 is carried by a
yoke member I3'I, which may as shown be se
cured to the front guide bar 36; and the other
spool I36- is carried by a yoke member I38 se
cured to the forward extension of the lug 64. 40
Guides I39 and I4!) are associated with the yoke
members to direct the inking ribbon downwardly
under the forwardmost stamping member 98 and
closely adjacent the pivoted supporting plate 3|,
45
leaving sufficient room for the insertion of the
folded sweatband therebeneath.
In order that fresh portions of the inking rib
bon I34 may be located beneath the selected
stamping member 98 there is secured to the :
movable clamping plate 69 an upwardly extend~
ing spring ?nger I4I which cooperates with a
ratchet wheel I42 operatively associated with
the spool I35 to advance the same and the ribbon
I34 carried thereby upon each upward movement
of the clamping plate.
In the operation of the complete apparatus
embodying the modi?ed stamping mechanism I29
illustrated in Figs. 4 and 5, when a folded sweat
band is positioned on the supporting and locat 60
ing means 23 and the latter adjusted for the
cutting of a sweatband to a selected size and
taper, the cutter actuating lever 54 is operated.
Concurrently with the operation of the lever 54
the bell crank ‘I0 and associated clamping plate 65
69 are moved downwardly to clamp the end sec
tions of the sweatband relative to the ?xed cut
ting bar.
Simultaneously the stamper actuating
bar I32 is moved downwardly to depress the
selected stamping member 98 which has pre
viously been moved to a predetermined forward
position upon the actuation of the size control
lever 44. Upon return of the cutter actuating
lever 54 and bell crank “III to their initial posi
tions the actuating ?nger I4I moves upwardly to
5
2,147,389
engage the racket wheel I42 and advance the ink
ing ribbon a predetermined extent. ;
As in the form ?rst described, therefore, it is
possible to not only accurately cut sweatbands
to predetermined and selected, sizes and tapes
but it is also possible to accurately place upon
the sweatbands an indicia of size.
