Class Code: 4282

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 4282 is applied to insureds engaged in the manufacture of paper dress, coat, etc., patterns. Drafting paper, cardboard, tissue paper, printing ink and envelopes are received from others. The business of making patterns may be divided into two parts. First is the designing and drawing of various styles, cutting and transferring of parts for making cardboard masters to be used as models for making of the tissue patterns, cutting of tissue parts by machine or hand knife (sometimes 200 layers), the printing of designating letters and cutting lines on the pattern parts, printing of pattern instructions and envelopes, the assembly of each part by folding once, the final folding of a complete pattern into pattern envelope size and the inserting of the pattern and instructions into envelopes. These envelopes go to the mail order department, which is the second portion of the dress pattern business. Orders are received by telephone and individual letters, or stores send lists of addressees to whom patterns are to be sent. The orders are sorted, and sizes and types of patterns are taken from stock and inserted into mailing envelopes which have been addressed for shipment.

This classification also is applied to insureds engaged in the manufacture of shoe or boot patterns. Drafting paper, cardboard or fiberboard, sheet metal, copper or brass binding strips and ink are received from others. Draftsmen draw the basic patterns according to their customers’ specifications. Sheet metal templates are cut to pattern on a special powered machine. The templates are then placed in a grading machine, which cuts the cardboard or fiberboard to a pattern, which is finished by hand cutting and filing. Thin strips of copper or brass are cut and crimped around the edges of the individual parts. The patterns are then marked for size and part, inspected, packed and shipped.

Code 4282 also applies to insureds engaged in the manufacture of music rolls. Rolls of paper, cardboard cores, metal rings, metal or composition ends, labels, ink and boxes are received from others. Selections are played upon a piano where pencil marks on a roll of paper indicate the exact details of the composition. This roll or preliminary master is then perforated by hand in accordance with the marks and run through a player piano to find errors. When the master is perfect, it goes to automatic machinery, which cuts rolls on a production basis. Rings are inserted and directions for using the rolls are printed. Words of the song may also be printed on the roll. Each roll is then hand wound and hand boxed followed by machine labeling.
