UNITED sr FENCE TOUL.

Application filed May 29, 1922, Serial 3T0. 5642,613. Renewed January 27, 1925.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, FAY H. G. Gnavns, a citizen of the United States, residing at Springfield, in the county of l-lampdei'i and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fence Tools, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing.

fences with staples to posts can be readily,

quickly and conveniently done, or to manipulate the ends of wires or other attachments used in the work, whereby they will afford a strong and tight means of tying in fences or fence wires or the like. Another object is to have such a tool that it will not only have an effective action but also have a relatively great leverage that will eliminate all unnecessary looseness in the staples or wires used in connection with it. Another object is to have the tool such that it may be used to undo its work effectively should such be required; and many other objects will become apparent as the invention is more fully set forth.

The use offences is increasing in lines that seem to indicate the use of metal posts in preference to other kinds. Such posts are usually provided with small holes properly spaced and disposed so that when staples are used in the holes and around the wires they will hold the fence wires. The use of the staples is customary, although other means are also used in certain cases. The staples are however hard to install because the tools used for them do not bend presses against the same and in a resilient manner by reason of the peculiar bend it gives the staple.

The jaws 2 and 3-, which may be termed teeth, are placed adjacent to the end of the shank and are separated from each other by the opening 4, and offsetoutwardly from the sides of the shanlr as indicated in the drawings, so as to be open to receive the staple legs.

The tool can be used in the reverse way for untying the staples or wire pieces or to bend a staple end or leg; Fig, 3 is a view with the tool in a position after taking a ninety degrees movement, and Fig. 4 is a view of the tool after ithas completed its 2 is a view-of the stapling tool ready movement and bent the staple leg completely over and in the form shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a modified form of the tool having the jaws on one side of the tool;

Fig. 6 is another modified form with the jaws on both sides atone end;

Fig. 7 is another modified form having jaws on opposite ends and sides; and

Fig. 8 is another modified form using an offset handle such as might be required in certain cases.

Similar reference characters refer to similar parts-throughout the drawings.

In the construction shown 1 represents the shank of the tool, and 2 an outer jaw, and 3 an inner jaw at anend of the shank. A space or slot 4c is provided between the jaws and is sufiiciently large to permit the insertion of the leg of a staple or the like. Jaws in the type shown in Fig. 1 are provided at both ends not only to afford a larger number of jaws but also to provide a stop that will prevent the tool slipping out of the hand while its other jaw end is being used on a staple;

The legs of the staples are shown at 6 and 7 with a connecting bend or hump 8 adapted to embrace a fence wire-9. The staple is inserted in the slot 10 of an iron fence post 11 over the wire 9, and the legs brought out through on the other side of the iron. The jaw 2 is placed on the side of the leg of the staple to which, it is desired to bend the latter. This places the slot 4 about the leg and the jaw 3 ready to pressagainst it. The shank is then raised and the jaw'3 pressed against the leg. This on the other leg of the staple, and the tie of the fence wire is completed.

The various modificationsappear selt explanatory, and use in general the same operations in their functioning. All the jaws need not be of the same size but made to meet the requirements or various forms and sizes of wire and staples used.

While several forms of the invention have been shown in the drawings, it is not de-.

sired to limit this application for patent to these particular forms nor in any other way, otherwise than limited by the prior art, as other constructions could be usedlthat would employ the same principles and come within the scope of the appended claiin.

What I claim is1:-

A stapling tool of the class described, comprising a fiat body of substantial uniform thickness and substantially rectangular in cross-section and with all its parts in substantially the same plane, said body having adjacent its fiat outer end a plurality of jaws spaced apart- :and offset equally from the same side of the body and in the plane thereof, said jaw-s being rectangular in cross-section and of the same width and having inner and outer parallel edges perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the body, which inner edges are suitably spaced apart, whereby the jaws are adapted to 011- gage either or both legs of a staple to bend it. asdesired when the tool is rotated on said end.

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