The "Piqué" is a two-thread, or double-chain stitch, and is formed by the threads carried by the vertical needle and the oscillating looper. The chain stitch is formed on the under surface of the material, the stitch on the upper surface having the same appearance as the ordinary lock stitch. Machines are provided with a pivoted guide and a combined top-feed and vibrating presser mechanism. The clear space from needle to base of arm is 5 3/4" and the bed is 11 1/2" in length. The shape and size of the tapered vertical post, which is 3 5/8" high and 1/4" diameter, is specially adapted for stitching the fingers of gloves. See also the Max Lange machine and H. Wollenberg machine in the German Gallery of the NeedleBar PL and compare with the Singer 108.

The "Prix-Seam" is the same as the lock-stitch, and the appearance is alike on both sides of the material. The shuttle, bobbin, and stitch-forming mechanism in this machine are the same as in our regular central bobbin machine, but operated horizontally in connection with an over-hanging needle-bar and needle. The feeding mechanism is composed of two revolving discs operated in strict time with each other. The front feed wheel is arranged so that it may be moved back from the rear wheel to release the work, either by hand or by means of the knee or foot-lifter, without disturbing the relative time of the two feed-wheels.

46K13 - For glove work. Plain wheel feed, CB shuttle needle-bar cam motion. Black wheel and plain parts. Superceded by 46K15.

46K14 - For glove work. Grooved wheel feed. CB shuttle, needle-bar cam motion. Plated wheel and parts. Superceded by 46K15.
