TAILORS MEASURING APPARATUS.
Application filed August 16, 1909.
To all whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that I, SAMUEL S. Monrrz, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dayton, in the county of Columbia and State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tailors hIeasuring Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to tailors measuring apparatus; and its object is the improvement of such devices whereby the same is rendered more simple and inexpensive in construction and more convenient to operate.
The invention consists in the novel construction and adaptation of parts, as will be hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a measuring apparatus embodying my improvements; Fig. 2 is a side elevation of one of the attachments employed in the invention; Fig. 3 is a horizontal section taken through 33 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a sectionalized perspective view of one of the elements of the invention and Fig. 5 is a detail in section and broken away illustrating the preferred form of connecting certain elements of the device together.
The reference numeral 5 designates the base member of a frame having extending upwardly therefrom two parallel posts 6 which are connected by tie-bars 7. Rig-idly secured to the bars is an upright rod 8 which is desirably disposed to be in proximity to a vertical plane medially of posts 6. The bar 8 may advantageously be made of three pieces, as illustrated, and is characterized by having a series of marks 9 which are graduated so as to indicate heights or distances with a conventional scale from the platform 5 of said base. The lower of the bar parts 8 is offset transversely from the center of the frame and may be connected with the bar-part next abox e by welding or otherwise; while the securement between the bar-parts and the aforesaid tiebars may be had in any suitable manner, as for example, by abutting the ends of the former against the respective tie-bars and employing fastening screws which extend through the latter into screw-threaded holes provided in the several parts of the bar 8, or by bolts extending through the tie-bars and lugs such as shown with respect to the upper part of the bar 8. Slidably mounted upon the above mentioned off-set part of bar 8 is a sleeve 10 to which is pivotally connected, by a pin 11 Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 11, 1910. Serial No. 512,978.
(Fig. 3) for vertical oscillatory movement, a hollow block 12 which affords a housing for a bar 13, which, through the off-setting of a part of the bar 8 with which it is connected, is positioned at equal distances from the posts 6 or at the mid-width of the frame. 16 and 17 represent set screws respectively employed for securing the sleeve 10 at various heights to the bar 8 and the bar 13 in adjusted position within the block 12. The pin 11 is desirably located adjacent to the rear edges of the sleeve and block while, near the front edges of the former, a springpressed bolt 14 is utilized to socket in a hole 15 provided in the block when the latter is in operative position, as indicated by full lines in Fig. 2, and thus maintain the bar 13 horizontally. This bar 13 is designed for designating the height of a persons crotch from said platform when standing thereon, and with the bar 13 horizontal and at the proper height, through manipulating the sleeve 10 upon the bar 8 the measurementcan be had from the registering mark corresponding with the top of a recess 18 provided in the sleeve and which is in the same plane with the top edge of the bar 13. hen this measurement is obtained the bolt 14: is disengaged from the block and bar 13 swings down to be in the position indicated by broken lines in Fig. 2 and out of the way for subsequent measuring operations.
On the bar 8 are also provided two blocks 19 and 20 which are each provided with an aperture 21 having openings at the top, bottom, and the front and back sides to accommodate both the bar Sand the respective horizontal bars 22 or 23. By thus forming a single chamber in each of the blocks 19 and 20 for the horizontal bars as well as for the vertical bar a single clamping screw 24 may be used for one of the blocks and a similar screw 25 for the other, a matter of considerable convenience to the operator. The bar 22 is employed for various measurements of a persons back, as is also the bar 23 while the latter will in addition serve to give his height.
Fitted to slide upon the posts 6 are sleeves 26 provided with housings 27 for laterally extending bars 28. Each of the latter has a sleeve 29 slidable thereupon to respectively carry forwardly extending arms 30 which, in turn, have upwardly extending arms 31 slidably attached thereto. The arms 30 are for determining the elevations of the arm pits of a person being measured, as well as the heights of the hips by having the upper and lower edges of these blades, upon occasion and through the proper shifting of the sleeves 26, bear against such parts of the persons form. To determine these measurements with reference to the bar 8, I provide upon the adjacent ends of the bars 28 attachments 32 which are each provided with fingers 33 and 34: which are respectively disposed to be in the planes of the top and bottom edges of the respective arms 30 and in such relation to the bar 8 as to designate thereon the heights of said edges.
The operation of the invention may be described as follows: A person to be measured stands on the platform 5 and his height is taken by the bar 23 with reference to the scale upon the rod 8. The elevation of the crotch of the legs, for the inseams of the trousers, is taken by the bar 13 with reference to the scale upon the rod 8 and when this measurement is had the bar may be turned down, as previously explained. The bars 22 and 23 may now be employed in ascertaining the curvature of the subjects back by employing the scale markings which are respectively provided thereon in connection with the scale markings upon the rod 8 for locating heights at which these measurements are taken. The sleeves 26 are nextmoved into position to present the lower edges of bars 30, when these bars are suitably adjusted with respect to the bars 28, against the hips and the pointers 34 of the respective parts will indicate the height of each of the hips while the other pointers 33 will give the height for the top edge for the trousers waistband. The sleeves 26 are then elevated to carry the bars 30 into contact with the respective arm-pits of the person being measured, the bars 30 being accordingly shifted, and the upright bars 31 brought against the front of the shoulderblades. WVith the last described parts thus adjusted the heights of the arm-pits are read. upon the bar 8 through the designating pointers 33; the distance apart by the scales upon the bars 28; and the thickness of the shoulder-blades by the relative positions of the bars 31, as indicated by scales upon the respective bars 30. It is to be noted that the pointers 33 and 3 1 of the attachments 32 not only show by their relative positions any irregularities between the dual parts of a persons body but also serve to indicate upon the scale of rod 8 the precise elevations of the same from the supporting platform.
