Notes

Application filed August 3, 1900. Serial No. 25,826. (No model.)

“The turning-tooling embodying the present invention is capable of general application to that type of bale-band fasteners involving a flat winding element about which the lapped bale ends are wound, although the tool is specially designed for use as an indispensable auxiliary to that class of rotatable bale-band buckles of the type shown in my former patents, No. 639,695 and 653,337. The latter of said patents – namely, No. 653,337 – disclosed a very simple and effective type of bale-band fastener, essentially consisting of a rotatable buckle.” (P. 3, lines 95-98; p.4, lines 1-6.)
