    What you seek is all here.... here in is illustrated a special type of sewing machine for the attachment of the peak and sweat leather at the same time. I do not have a scanner, nor would I scan this book due to its age, but my readers will extend me said faith in this utterly vital matter. Various kinds of differently configured sewing machines were used in cap making and are interpreted here in detail.

    I think the Wilkins book has something to say on this score, too, does it not?

    Wilkins did not use the attached book in his research.

    I would dearly love to see that machine! It must have had some power because it had to punch a hole through wool, vulcanfibre peak, pasteboard, more wool and finaly leather all in one go. Or the opposite way around of course.

    I am sure an example exists somewhere in Germany. Or elsewhere in Europe. Someday, if I still have my collection and my library, you are welcome to look at my Hempe book and my foetid woolens. I should translate it and republish it, but I have no time and flagging interest.

    It is not about "sculls" and "crimped prongs."

    Thanks, Ben, for being part of our little bio tope, too.

    PS this is not my cap, but shows the results of the machine we have describe and which I cannot really show to you.

    an amusing trait of certain caps made by Mueller (see the thing above) is the removal of excess ink on the sweat band before the stamp was rendered on the RZM tag. I own one like this, and what I picture here is another example, no doubt all done by the same person....who otherwise is anonymous and utterly faceless to us save for this quirky aspect of the national socialism and the RZM.

    Maybe she (the woman or girl who stamped this) was killed in an air raid; maybe she lived on in the post war era to imbibe Schweinhaxen and drive an Isetta in the Wirtschaftswunder; maybe she knocked me over in the Munich U Bahn and or cut me off while I was trying to make a left turn to get around the Deutsches Museum? Maybe her grand daughter flirted with me, or shoved me in the shins in the Hofbraeuhaus? I spent a lot of time in Munich in 2008-2009, you see. But I did not look for August Mueller on the Dachauerstrasse, and doubt that anybody I would ask might have any idea of what I was in search of at said time.

    Stamp freed of extra ink appears thus. Notice stray threads....what do they portend?

    more cap innards....for whatever it might mean. I shall not offer any interpretation of the stitches here. Mr. Bruce Frog knows this cap.

    I should know better than to do this, but here is its "scull" such as it is....

    More would read this thread if I tore the thing from its place and sold it for 3000 dollars on "Facebook."

    In my experience, it's when the sewing thread has snapped or the needle has jammed. You then have to release the foot of the machine and start over again. Personnaly I snip off the stray threads but then again I've never had to sew 50 caps before the end of my shift.
