Specification of Letters Patent.
'lPatented'Apr. 1, 1913.
Application filed 1:eorua1y 12, 1912. Serial No. 676,937.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Jnssn C. TEMPLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sallis, in the county of Attala, State of Mississippi, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in IVire-Stretchers; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to new and useful improvements in wire stretcher-s of the type comprising a bar provided at one end with a handle and intermediate its length with a wire receiving notch and with its other end adapted to be fulcrumed against a fence post or other fixed object and the object of my invention is to improve the construction and increase the ei'liciency of wire stretchers of the above described character.
A further object of my invention is to provide a novel and efiicient means for forcing the wire to be stretched into the wire retaining notch of the stretcher.
Vith these and other objects in view, my invention will be more fully described illustrated in the accompanying drawings which show a preferred embodiment of my device and then specifically pointed out in the claim which is attached to and forms a part of this application.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of my wire stretcher. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section showing the wire clamping mechanism. Fig. 8 is a transverse section on the line 33 of Fig. 2.
Referring more specifically to the drawings, in which similar reference numerals designate corresponding parts throughout, l0 designates the body of my wire stretcher which is preferably formed of wood and which as shown, comprises a bar or lever of suflicient length to give the required purchase and which is provided at one end with a reduced handle 11 and intermediate its length with a transversely. extending slot 12 the inner end of which is extended longitudinally as at 13 in a direction away from the handle. This extended portion of the slot is substantially V-shaped as shown in such a manner that a wire wedged into the vertex of the slot will be firmly held against longitudinal movement therethrough. The forward and rear faces of the bar are preferably provided with metallic plates 14- each having a slot corresponding in contour with the slot of the lever and registering there- By exerting pressure against the extension 17 of the pin the latter may be forced against the wire to wedge the same in the V-shaped terminal of the slot 13.
As best shown in Fig. 1 the plates 14 extend forwardly beyond the fulcrumed end of the lever and terminate at their free ends with teeth 19 adapted to engage against the fence post or other fixed object against which the tool is fulcrumed. These plates are firmly secured in place by means of bolts 20 passing through both plates and the lever or ar.
In operation-the wire to be stretched is passed through the slot 12. moved downwardly into its extension 13 and there wedged in place by means of the pin 16. The lever is then fulcrumed against a fence post or other suitable object and force is applied to the handle of the lever to draw upon the wire.
It will of course be understood that minor changes in construction may be made if desired without in the slightest degree departing from the spirit of my invention.
What I claim is A wire stretcher comprising a handle bar having an end of substantially squared formation in cross section, a pair of plates fixed to opposed sides of the bar, teeth formed at the outer ends of the plates and projecting beyond the bar in alinement with each other, said bar and plates being provided with l.- shaped slots formed transversely thereof and opening through the top edges of the same, the inner branch of said slot being provided with forwardly converging walls, the bar formed on its upper surface and inwardly of id L-shaped slot with a longitudinal recess and a bore extending from the base of said recess and opening into the inner branch of said slot, a pin slidable in said bore and a handle arm extending therefrom up through In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, 1n presence of two wltnesses.
