Electro-pneumatic attachment for sewing pre-closed elastic loops to circular garments with power feed to start the clean finish fold. The device consists of expansion roller guides, two position folder, power feed package and air control package designed to sew pre-closed elastic loops inside a closed garment to produce a clean finish circular
The pre-sewn elastic loop is inserted inside the closed circular panel overlapping the elastic by 3/8” to 1/2”. With a touch of the air foot switch and heeling the sew treadle, the guide rollers collapse and the presser foot lifts. The garment is inserted over the rear roller, under the presser foot and over the front roller. The operator depresses the air foot pedal to expand. A touch of the knee switch shifts the clean finish folder to the right and the operator tucks the fold under material with the fingers of the right hand. A touch of the toe switch jogs the garment through the folder 5 to 7 inches to assure a clean fold. The garment is sewn to the point where stitching began. A press of the knee switch opens the folder and allows sew over of the starting stitches. Heeling the treadle actuates the undertrimmer and footlift*. A touch of the air foot pedal collapses the rollers for unloading.
