FENCE-POST.

wearer.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 7, 1916.

Application filed May 7, 1915. Serial No. 26,555.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JOHN PrcnnnLL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Louisville, in the county of Jefferson and State of Kentucky, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fence- Posts; 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.

The invention relates to improvements in fence posts.

The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of fence posts and to provide a simple, practically indestructible fence post of comparatively inexpensive construction adapted to be advantageously employed in various kinds of fencing and which when used with wire fencing will be fireproof.

lVith these and other objects in view the invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims hereto appended, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion and minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the drawing Figure l is a vertical sectional view of a fence post, and a portion of a fence showing my improved construction, Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view of a fence post and a portion of a difierent type of fence, Fig. 3 is an elevation partly in section of a fence post constructed for use in connection with wire fencing. Fig. 4 is a horizontal sectional View on the line 4.i of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 55 of Fig. 2.

Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawing.

In the accompanying drawing which is illustrated the preferred embodiment of the invention, 1 designates a channeled concrete fence post approximately U-shaped in cross section reinforced by galvanized wire 2 and covered at the top by a cap 3 and at the bottom by a lower solid portion 4 constituting a solid base portion and adapted to have embedded therein a rod or member 5 constructed of metal and forming an exterior-1y proecting longitudinally disposed anchoring lug 5 designed for use in stony or rocky ground where it is impractical to dig post holes. The rod or member 5 which is rigid with the fence post is inserted in a hole drilled or bored in such rocky surfaces and secured in said drilled hole by concrete which is designed to be of a sufficient amount to entirely receive the projecting lug so that the latter will not rustthrough exposure to the moisture of the ground.

The post is, provided at opposite sides with lugs 6 cast integral with the post and supporting the adjacent ends of stringers 7 which are secured by bolts 8 or other suitable fastening devices to the lugs. The lugs, however, mayconsist of separatepieces embedded in the plastic material of the post and the latter is supported between the lugs by a horizontal piece 9 consisting of a wooden block and secured to the post by a bolt 10 but any other suitable material may be employed in the construction of the part 9. The lugs 6 support the lower stringers of the post and the upper stringer 11 is secured to the cap of the post by a bolt 12 or other suitable fastening means and is arranged upon the top of the post as clearly shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing.

In Fig. 2 of the drawing the post is reinforced in its upper portion by a wooden bar or body portion 13 located above the ground and adapted to have boards 14 nailed to form a board fence, the stringers 7 and 11 being adapted to have pickets lt secured to them in the ordinary manner as clearly shown in Fig. 1. The post is preferably provided with opposite lugs 6 to enable stringers to be applied to it, if desired, and it may be equipped with the lug 5. The lug 5 is designed to be omitted where it is practical to set the post in post holes.

In the form of the invention illustrated in Figs. 3 and a, the post is designed to re ceive wire fencing 15 which is secured to the post by hook bolts 16 or other suitable fastening means. The timber 13 to which the boards 14 are secured is fastened in the channel of the fence post by the bolts 10 or other suitable fastening devices which are arranged in the perforations through which pass the fastening means for securing the wire fencing or fence wires to the post. The wire fencing is arranged at the fiat face or back of the post while the boards and the pickets are located at the open or channel side of the post, and the horizontal piece 9 is adapted to receive the nails or other fastening means for securing a picket in place should it be necessary to fasten one directly in front of the open side or channel of the post. The fence posts are preferably tapered but of course they may be molded of any desired form and as they are practically indestructible they will outlast wooden boards, pickets, and stringers and may be renewed when necessary. The solid bottom or base portions of the hollow post render the same especially advantageous for use on hilly ground as the post when constructed in this manner will be less liable to pull out of the ground in low places when the wires are stretched.

It will be seen that the hollow concrete fence post by being reinforced with the galvanized wire is light, strong and durable and that as it has a solid bottom and that it is adapted to have the various kinds of fencing applied to it such as pickets,'board's, and woven wire. It will also be seen that it is equipped with means for enabling it to be readily mounted in hard stony ground where it is practically impossible to dig ordinary post holes. Furthermore, the metal rod or member which forms the projecting lug at the lower end of the post is set in cement or concrete and is protected from the same and prevented from rusting.

What is claimed is p r I V 1, The combination of a hollow concrete fence post consisting of a channeled 'body having a solid lower portion and provided with a relatively wide channel extending from the solid lower portion to the top of the post, said post being provided abovethe solid portion with integral exterior projecting lugs having fiat upper faces, a wooden member extending across the channel between the lugs, a lower stringer supported upon the upper faces of thelugs, a cap having a flat upper face andfitted on the upper end of the fence post and an upper stringer arranged upon the fiat'top face of the cap. I

'2. The combination of a hollowconcrete fence post consisting of a channeled body having a solidlower portion andprovided with a relatively wide channel extending from the solid lowerportion to the top of the post, said post being provided above the solid portion with integral exteriorprojecting lugs having fiat upper faces, a wooden member extending across the channel between the lugs, a cap fitted on the top of the post and fencing having fastening means piercing the post and the wooden member.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

JOHN PIOKRELL. Witnesses:

J. T. WELLMAN, N. E. HEINSHEIMER.
