To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I GEORGE REHFUSS of Philadelphia Pennsylvania have invented a Design for a Sewing.Machine of which the following is a specification:
Figure 1 represents a side view of the stationary arm and bed of the machine Fig. 2 a side view of the needlelever Fig. 3 a crosssection of the stationary arm and needlelever on the line 1 2 and Fig. 4 a crosssection of the same on the line 3 4.
The stationary arm has parallel edges from the base up to the line x x from which point the inner edge y gradually merges into the under edge at of the arm the curve being continuous from the point x outward. The rear curved edge of the aria is straight from the base to the point t when it merges with a gradual curve into the upper edge w of the arm. Ribs of the character best observed in Figs. 3 and 4 are formed on both edges of the arm.
It should be understood that the design for the stationary arm does not include the outer end of the same shown in dotted lines which may be varied in accordance with the mechanism to be attached to it.
The needlelever consists of the tapering arm d and curved arm c both being ribbed at the edges and meeting at a central hub f through which the pin for hanging the needle to the stationary arm passe.
