U.S. Supreme Court

Weatherhead v. Coupe, 147 U.S. 322 (1893)

Weatherhead v. Coupe

No. 104

Argued January 4-5, 1893

Decided January 18, 1893

147 U.S. 322


Claims 1 and 3 of letters patent No. 213,323 granted to William Coupe, March 18, 1879, for an improvement in hide-stretching machines, construed.

The principal feature of the Coupe machine, covered by claim 1, and of his method of stretching hides, covered by claim 3, is, that the hide is stretched longitudinally and transversely at the same time, and a single passage of the hide through the machine is supposed to give it sufficient stretching transversely as well as longitudinally.

The defendant's machine has no stretcher bar, substantially such as that of the patent, giving a transverse stretch to the hide simultaneously with the giving of the longitudinal stretch, and therefore does not infringe the patent.

The case is stated in the opinion.
