having been obtai to one gallon each '15 copal'or Eastlndia' gu "produced jty treating niftratcd or acetelated cellulose with fuse oil or amyl acetate and thereafter dissolving the same in a volatile hydrocarbon such-as ether, acetone, alcohol 5 or amyl al'cohol'orpreferably in a iri'ixture of acetone and the solution, if desired,

, giving body to the plastic composition and of increasing its flexibility when, dried. A suitable dye'may also be added to :the solution whenthe same is to be used upon tan, black or other colored leather in order that the leather may not show the efiecto'f treat:

ent. While the plastic compositions abovedo scribed *have' been found to be practical and efficient for the purpose set forth, it is to be understood, however, that our invention is; not limited to these products, but includes any plastic material having the properties of being leather adherent and contr -active. upon drying, the particular compositions to which reference has been :made being illustrative but not restrictive.

; In finishing the edge by our processit is not necessary that the edge be wholly curled under ,as'illustrated in the drawing, In many casesit will be found suflioient if the edge is slightly curled inasmuch as the plastic composition is of a water repellent 40 character and adapted perinanently to retain-theedge ofjthe leather in its rounded form.' I

While the treatment of the skived edge ofzthe leatl r with a contractive plastic composition asf aboyevdescribed isordi'narily su'llicie'nt to produoea perfect finished edge, it is found that some classes of leather 'are- 'less'susceptible to, the fcontractive action or the plastic composition, and that in others so there isa lack of uniformity in the character or ',a variation-,inporosity of different portions of the same piece'.- In such cases the" alinement'and the uniform curvature of the finished edge may be insured by applying 5 pressureto the'same' by means of adie or preferably by the, progressive application 'of"'pressure by an edge forming machine. such as that above described, (or by passing the. edge of the leatherythrough an edge r rounding machine). So far as the securing of the proper ahnement and curvature of the edge is-concerned it is not necessary that the tool or wheel 9 of the machine described shall mo a faster than the fried of the leather 55 edge. But it is frequently desirable to his coiirp'letely 'which consists in slightly skiving the edge the grain side of the 'leatheris use finish the {edge by hur-nishirigand by the machine described this burnishing' operation is thus performed simultaneously, and bythe same machine which 'r'assurcs the gre- (p-tired edge alinementandicurvature.

The treated edge-.mayl'ae subjected-to such pressure either before. the plastic material dried (ii-thereafter, since the plastic composition above described is of such character as permanently to adapt itself tothe form gii en it by the pressure applying device.

What we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
