  • Patent number: 4220103
    Abstract: An auxiliary table for sewing machines of free arm type which includes a main body, a cylindrical bed integrated with the main body, a base member fixed to the main body, a hinge plate rotatably mounted on the base member at one end thereof, and an auxiliary table engaged with the other end of the hinge plate and slidable therewith toward and away from the cylindrical bed. A plate spring is connected to the base member for downwardly biasing the hinge plate, thereby preventing the hinge plate from swinging movement and the auxiliary table from vibrating for flat work sewing. The hinge plate provides for the auxiliary table to be moved in a first position in contact with the free arm while for tubular work sewing the table can be swung in a second position separately from the arm.
