A. J. GERRARD ET AL WIRE BALE TIE Filed Jan. 16. 1923 Alec Jfi'qz'ra 'd farrcin Wnigh Inventors W Aftorrzqy Patented July 22, 1924 ALEC J OH'N GERRARD AND PAEVIN WRIGHT, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

WIRE BALE Tin;

Application filed January'16, 1923. Serial No. 613,058.

To aZZ whom it may concern Be it known that we, ALEo JOHN GERRARD and PARVIN WRIGHT, respectively, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and a citizen of the United States, both residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of 11- linois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wire Bale Ties; and we 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 a-ppertains to make and use the-same.

This invention relates to wire bale ties,

and has for its object to provide an article of this nature which will be capable of use in a variety of different machines. With these objects in View, the invention consists in the novel details of construction and combinations of parts more fully hereinafter disclosed and particularly pointed out in the claims.

Referring to the accon'ipanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which like numerals designate like parts in all the views:

Figure l is a diagrammatic view illustrating one type of machine capable of employin only tie wires having deformed ends;

igure 2 indicates one of the holding posts employed in a machine such as that shown in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is an end view of the post shown in Figure 2 with the deformed end of the wire applied thereto; I

Figure 4 is a knot tied by the machine shown in Figure 1;

Figure 5 is a plan view of a portion of a wire bale tie made in accordance with this invention;

Figure 6 is a diagrammatic view showing how the wire of Figure 5 may be applied to a type of machine difierent from that shown in Figure 1; and

Figure 7 is a diagrammatic perspective View illustrating how the wire shown in Figure 5 when used on other machines, may be tied with the well knownknots in common use. 1

In order that the invention may be the more clearly understood, it is said:

In the .copending application of A. J. Gerrard and Parvin Wright, No. 541,777, filed March'f, 1922, entitled Wire tensioning and twisting machines, there is disclosed in detail a machine of the character shown in Figure 1, and also there is disclosed the advantages of a knot made from a tie wire with the deformed end on such a machine. Briefly, these advantages reside in the fact that the extreme ends of the finished knot are bent down alongside of the adjacent bights of the wire so that they do not project up to tear the hands of the operator or to tear boxes or packages which may be slid over said knots during shipment. Such objections are very common in knots of this character made from wires not having deformed ends, as is well known.

Briefly stated, the disclosure of said copending application makes it quite clear that a tie wire such as 1 having a deformed end such as 2 when placed in the post 3 of a machine such as may be held by said post whilethe bight 4 of said wire is passed down one side of a box or package and the bight 6 is "passed up on the other side of said box. Said bight 6 is also passed into the slot 7 of the post 3,throughaportion8 of the machine 40 containing the wire twisting mechanism (not shown), then through a slotted post 9 and around a tensioning mechanism 10, whereupon the operation of j the lever 11 will put any desired tension upon said wire and a turning of the handle 12 will operate the twisting mechanism to twist the parts together to form the knot shown in Figure 4. Said disclosure. also makes it clear that the post 3 as indicated in Figure 3 is provided with a projection or lip 13 which when strain is brought upon the bight 4 causes the extreme end 14 of the wire to be turned down slightly as plainly shown in Figures 3 and 4, so that said end 14 lies down alongside of the bight- 6 of the knot and thus does not tea-r the hands or 1packages when rapidly passed over said not.

Said disclosure further makes it clear that after the bights 4 and 6 have been thus twi'stedtogether, as illustrated, a cutter 17 surrounding the post 9 outs ofi the bight 6 and in so doin turns down the extreme end 18 of the finished knot alongside of the bight 4 and thus prevents said end from projecting up above said bight and tearing the hands or packages when passed over said knot.

Machines operating as above disclosed for making knots like those just described are well known on the market and have gone into extensive use. But there are a numof machines do not employ pins such as 21,

but they require the loops 2O nevertheless, for said loops are manipulated in other ways well known to those skilled in the art. These loops are not adapted for use in the type of machines shown in Figure 1, and therefore, when a gang of workmen are providedwith different types of machines, some requlrmg tie wires having deformed ends 2, such as those above illustrated, and some requiring loops such as 20, there is generally experienced vexatious delays and confusions,

owing to the fact that the tie wires are not interchangeable from one machine to another. In fact, there is a greater variety of machines requiring loops than of those requiring deformed ends, although the knots of the latter are far superior to the knots of the former. It is therefore very desirable indeed to supply a tie wire which will be capable of a so called universal use in all of the various types of machines now on the market. This has been accomplished by the provision of the loop 20 on one end of thetie Wire 1, and the deformed portion 2 on the other end of the said tie wire, so that when a machine of the type shown in Figure 1 requires a bale tie, the deformed portion 2 may be fitted into its post 3 and the looped end cut off, while if another type of machine requires the loop form of tie wire, the loop 20 may be fitted into the machine, or used by it, and the deformed end cut off after the knot is made. Vhen the deformed end 2 is fitted into a machine such as that in Figure 1 and the loop end is cut off by the revolving cutter 17, the knot appears as in Figure 1, which is a very supperior knot as above stated. On the other hand, when the looped end of the wire is required to be fitted into the machine or is otherwise manipulated by the machine, a type of knot illustrated at 22 in Figure 7 results. That is to say, the deformed end 2 is passed through the loop 20 and the wire is twisted around the bight 4 as indicated. In such cases, the end portion 2 is cut off by suitable mechanism, not shown. But again, in some machines of the general type of Figure 1, the looped end 20 of the wire may pass around a post such as 21 located on the left hand side of the machine, as seen in Figure 1, and the deformed end 2 of the wire is subjected to the tensioning mechanism when the parts are twisted together,

down beside the bights of the wire as will I be understood from Figure 4.

It will now be clear that by providin a bale tie wire, with a loop at one end and a deformed portion 2 at its other end, an operator working a gang of men or using a number of different kinds of machines, need only buy and keep track of one kind of tie wire, forhe can be assured at all times that each type of machine can be kept in operation so long as there are any tie wires of the type of this invention left in stock. Further, when baling hay or other material under compression, one may pass this wire around the bale in the ordinary way by hand, pass the deformed portion 2 by hand through the loop 20 in the ordinary way and secure it by hand to bight 4 in the ordinary. way, so that this tie Wire is notonly capable of use on the various types of machines, but it is capable of hand manipulation in baling presses. A further decided advantage in this type of bale tie wire accrues to the manufacturer, in that he may readily not only standardize the wires to a single type but he can also standardize the shipping packages containing the same to a single type, thus saving not only in the cost of the various machines necessary to make different types of wire, but also saving in the cost of packaging different types of wire.

What is claimed is:

1. A bale tie comprising a wire having a flattened deformed portion on one of its ends, and a loop portion on the other of its ends.

2. A bale tie wire provided on one of its ends with a deformed portion of a diameter less than the thickness of the. wire and on its other end with a loop.

3. A wire bale tie provided with a fiattened deformed portion on one end and with a tcilvisted portion forming a loop on its other en 1. A wire bale tie capable of use in different types of machines and provided on one of its ends with a flattened deformed portion terminating in a holding shoulder, and on its other end with a holding loop.

In testimony whereof we afiix our signatures.
