International Exhibition.

Philadelphia, 1876.

Mclean & Bennor Machine Co., Philadelphia, Pa.

This company exhibited two machines. One, the "Philadelphia Sewing-Machine," is substantially like the machine represented in United States patent No. 101,292. The shuttle was held in an inclined position in a stationary shuttle-holder below the cloth-support and in line with the needle. A rotating hook operated by a crank at the end of the main shaft caught the loop of needle-thread, distended and passed it about the shuttle, forming a lock-stitch. The machine was provided with a reciprocating-rod or finger to twist and detain the loop of needle-thread, cast off from the heel of the shuttle, until the needle in its next descent passed through it. This enables the machine to make a twisted chain-stitch with a locking-thread. By omitting the shuttlethread and permitting the finger and hook to operate, a chain-stitch may be produced.

They also exhibited a cheap needle-feed ,sewing-machine, having under the cloth-support a vibrating thread-carrying loopcr, that, cooperating with the needle, acted to form a two-threaded double-looped stitch. The machine was made in accordance with United States patent No. 105,961.
