Patented 6; 1931 corn, REIN'HQLD rIEFmAND EDWARD WALS QQF n-ENvER, coLo R'Ano 1 cononE'rE-smr FORM I I .rp ncatan' ndma 17, This inventionjre'lates to what is common- 1y known as a step'jack,-thatis, a device for,
hold ng riser boards in place while pourlng concrete stepsand stalrs.
The principalobject of the invention'is toprovide a device ofthis character which canbe quickly and easily adjusted to' accomfmodate' steps-'of'any desired height ofrisero and'width of'treadg "Another object oif the invention is to providea simplified construction in'which a single clamp's'c rew'will maintain 'thejack in pof sition upon a supporting stringer and secure the riser bbardtheretO'. Y 7
Other objects and advantages reside in the, detailconstrtlctionof the invention, which is designed for-simplicity, economy, andeifi- Hciency. These will become more apparent from the following description. j
In the following detailed description of the invention reference is had to' the accom- 1 panying'drawingwhich forms a part hereof. IJike numerals refer to like parts'in 2111 views of the drawing and throughout the fdescri'ption. o In the drawing: r
Fig; 1 is a side elevation of a supporting 1 stringer illustrating .thesuccessive steps of- .1, Fig. 2 is a perspective view illustrating the improved jackinuse. I i
,Fig. 3 .is vertical section taken onthe line 33,Fig.2.. I
iFig. 4 is a. horizontal section through the [jack taken on the line 4-4:, Fig. ,3.
The j ack is designed for use with a timber stringer such as illustratedat 22 and: wooden riser. boards 25.
The improved jack comprises afohannel iro nleg member 10 whichterminatesat its lower extremityin, a forwardly projecting foot 11 The forward extremity of the foot 11 is provided with'upwardly turned flanges v: 28 for engaging andholding a riser board 25. A slide member12 is slidably mounted upon the leg 10. At one side of the slide member 12, ears' 21 project to engage the upper edgejof a riser board 25. A jack screw 1 3 is provided with a head 26 to preventits of the clamp blockf16. Theextremities 0f.

. v,At each side of thebushing'. 15 in the j clamp block.16 vertical. channels are formed, in each ofwhich a-clamp hook17 isslidably carried. One of the clamp hooks 17 extends out of the upper endxof theclamp block 16 and passes through a slidable guide 18 upon the leg 10 which acts to maintain the. clamp block-uprighton .theleg 10. The other clamp hook 17 projects from the bottom extremity both clamp hooks 17 are provided with inwardly turned points 19. Each of the hooks 217. is provided with a projection 31 which travels ina groove 32 in the clamp block '16 and limits themovement of-the hooks 17 -and" prevents their withdrawal fromthe block 16. A pin 20 is passed through the leg lOi at its upper extremities to prevent the slides 12 and 18 from passing off the upper extremity h I In us ng the invention the mechanic se- I lects a stringer preferably a two by four timber, such as illustrated at 22 He then places his square upon the stringer 22' as illustrated at .23, so thatthe rise of the desired stepsis laid off on one leg of the square and the tread of the desired steps is laid off on the other leg thereof. l/Viththeisquare' in this position he stringer such as indicated at 24c; spaced apart 5 the width of the desired-tread. series of riserfbo'ards 25 are now prepared -eachhaving a width equal tothe rise of the desired stairs.
'Thestep ;jacks are now placed on the "stringer 22 so that the forwardedge of each leg 10"1ies" along one or thelines- 24c. 'A riser board 'isp'laced on the foot 11 and the leglO "drawn upwardly tjo firmly clamp the riser board against the ears 21. The clamp hooks 17 areforced downwardly and upwardly re spectivelyyto engage the upper and lower edges of the stringers 22and'the jack screw 13 isv tightened. In tightening, the jack "will'be forced against the leg so as tofirm ly lock itinthe slidefmember 12. I
' itselftofboth the" stringer 22" and the"riser" a board 25. Sufficient jacks are employednto' It noted that the ti hten-ing of jack screw 13 served to lock all of ,theconr. ponent parts of the jack and to lock the jack maintain a riser board for each or the desired steps. For the usual-zwidth of step two of the stringers 22 will be Sllfl'lClGIlt with a wjackiiat each extremitydof each '1 riser board.
