' Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Jan; 21 1919 int st nemama 7. 19117.. Seria1No."2O0,781.
Be it known that I," ALnxANnEnO. Momns, a citizen of the United States, residing at Clarkston, in the county of Asotin and State of Washington, haveinvented certain new and useful Improvements in Post-Supports, of which the following is a specification. 1
. This invention relates to improi' ementsin fence posts, trolley line, telegraph, or 'te'le phone poles,'and the'like, and has for one of its objects. to provide a base or support for the post or pole ofimproved construction, and including a supporting-frame'of metal members embedded. in a concrete base; or foundation. i
' Withthese' and other objects inf-view, the invention consists in'cert'ain novel features of construction, as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claims; and in the drawings illustrative of the preferred embodiment of the invention 1 i Figure 1 is an elevationofithe improved deviceready for application without the concrete base or foundation. i Fig. 2 is .a transverse section on the line 2,2 of Fig. 1, withlthe concrete baseap Fig. 3 is a vertical section on the line 3-3 ofFig.2. j
Fig. 4 is a transverse section on the line 44 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrow, without the concrete base.
Fig. ,5 is a transverse section on the line 5 5- of Fig. 1 looking in the direction of the arrow and without the concrete base.
The improved devicemay'be applied to poles or posts of various sizes'and employed r v r ou a pesasa d ethet ra s post or pole is represented conventionally 10, generally of wood, and provided with a downwardly opening recess or cavity 11 in the lower end, the side walls of the cavity being preferably tapered with the large end downwardly, as shown. At its inner end the cavity 11 is continued in the form ofa socket 12 to receive a tubular supporting member 13, the latter extending through the cavity 11 and for a considerable distance below the lower end of the post. Attached to the post 10 at its lower recessed end are a plurality of stay members 14 in the form of straps. The stay members 14 are preferably embedded inthe material of the post as shown in Figs. 2 and 3 and extend for a considerable distance below its lower recessed .22 to hold them in position.
end with the lower'terminals of the stays inturned as shown at 15, the inturned terminals extending fora short distance below the lower end of the tubular support 13.
. Any required number of the stay members 14 may be employed, but generally four will be used and spaced at uniform distances, as shown more particularly in Fig. 2.
The portions of the stay members 14 which are embedded in the posts are preferably curved transversely to correspond to the curvature of the post as illustrated in Fig. 2. Clamp bolts 16 extend through the stay members 14 and the upper portion of the tubularsupport 13 and likewise through the adjacent portion of the post.
The stay members and the post are inclosed by clamping members or bands 17, to firmly support the post and the stay members in united position. The bands are outturned at their terminals as shown at 18 and provided with clamp bolts 19 extending through the outturned portions. By this means the bands 17 maybe adjusted to correspond to the diameter of the post and to take up slack if any exists. Any required number of the bands 17 may be employed but two will generally be sufficient. as shown. The stays 14 below the lower line of the recessed end of the post are provided with transverse extensions 20 through which tie bolts 21 are extended and bear against the side faces of the tubular support 13. Each opposite pair of the stays 14 will be provided with a pair of the bolts 21 as illustrated in Figs. 1 and 5, so that the tubular support 13 is firmly supported and held in position centrally of the post and of the stays 14. Each of the bolts 21 is provided with a clamp nut The stays 14 are further supported by transverse tie bolts 23 which pass through the stays and likewise through the tubular support 13. Any required number of the bolts 23 may be employed but generally two sets, as shown, will be sufficient, and spaced at suitable distances. 7
The stays 14, the supporting tubular member 13 and the numerous bolts are thus rigidly connected to the post and to each other as illustrated in Fig. 1, and when thus constructed will be inserted in a suitable mold and a mass of cementitious material, such as concrete or the like, disposed in the mold and allowed to flow into the tubular support 13 and fill the cavity 11 of the post, as illuslines in Figs. 2 and 3.
trated by dotted lines in Fig. 1 and in full The cementitious material thus entirely incloses the stay members 14, the support ing member 13,'and the numerous tie rods which are located below the recessed 'end of the post. The mass of concrete forms an of fectual base or foundation for the post and coacts with the reinforcing metal parts to firml support the post in osition. The bands 17 support the post in osition and prevent splitting or checking, and likewise reinforces and supportsjthe' stay members 14, while the bolts 21 and 23 firmly support and reinforce the tubular support 13.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is: p I
1. In a device: of th eIass described, h post having a tapered cavity in its lower end terminating in a socket, 'a supporting'member seated in the socket and extending through the cavity, a plurality of stay members connect'ed to the post and extending below the same, tie members extending through the supporting member and united to the stay members below the line of the po t, and clamp bolts extending through the post and through the supporting memberfat said socket and unitedto the stay members and a concrete base in which the depe ding ,piortions of said supporting member and the stays are embedded and provided with an extension fitting within the post cavity.
2. In a device of the class described, a post having a socket and provided at its lower end withacavitythe walls of which convergein the direction of and intersect the walls of-the socket, a supporting member seated in the socket and extending through the cavity, a plurality of stay members connected to "the post and extending belowthe same, tie mom-- hers extending through the-supporting member and united to the stay members below the line of the post, clamp bolts extending through the post and through the su porting member in saidsocket and united to se am the stay members above the cavity therein,
and bands encompassing the post andthe stay members attached thereto, the post cavity being adapted to receive cementitious material and the depending portions of said supporting member and the stays being adapted to be embedded in said material.
In a device at" the, class described, a post having a socket and provided at its lQWer end with a cavity the walls of which converge in the direction of and intersect the walls of the socket, a supporting member seated in the socket and extending through the cavity, a plurality of stay members connected to the post and extending below the same and provided with lateral extensions, tie members extending through the stay extensions and bearing against the to the st'ay members above the cavity therein.
4. A fence post comprising a concrete base having a tapered extension, a post resting on thefbase and having its lower end provided with a tapered cavity conforming to the shape of and'adapted to receive the ex tension of the base and {providedwith a socket, "a supporting member seated in the socketand having Its lower end embedded the base, aplurality of stay members connected with the post and having their lower ends embedded in the concrete constituting the, base, said staym'embersbeing provided with lateral extensions, iti'e members extending through 'theextensionsand bearing upon the exterior walls of the-supporting member within "the base, clamp bolts "extending through the post and through the supporting member at said socket and united to the adjacent stay members above the base, "and a clamping member surrounding the post and bearing againstjthe stay members at the extension on "the base. i
