This may be done by fixing the die firmly upon a frame to be provided for the purpose, and causing a shaft with a cam or eccentric section to re- volve before it, and a pitman or shackle-bar connected therewith and extended to and con- nected with the follower by a flexible joint such as is ordinarily applied to operations of that kind will give the movement required, or such other means or process as are com- monly used for producing movements of like nature, as well as such methods for obtaining the necessary power. The follower may be supported and kept true in its direction by means of projections, as arms or wings, extending from it horizon- - tally, and connected, as by tongues and grooves or otherwise, with fixtures of the frame pro- vided for the purpose. Having thus fully set forth the improvements of the said Jonas RousE according to the best of our knowledge and belief, what we claim therein as his invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is- The method of turning or bending the tongues of hinge or butt plates and forming them into eyes as described by placing them on a flat surface of a die having a projection, b, therefrom, against which the tongues of the hinge-plates are forced by a follower, so as to bend them round into eyes, substantially in the manner and for the purpose above speci- fied. e JAMES ROY.
