GUY ANCHOR Fiied'Dec. 24. 1927 INVENTOR Thamasfl 5675)).

A TTORNEY Patented Oct. 18, 1932 a THOMAS 2B; BASH, or KANSAS CITXpMISSOtIRI Gov. niicnon Applicationfiled December 4, 1927. Serial mfmaess.

My inventiom relates to' guy rope or rod anchors and more particularlyto a device of that character comprising a compacting earth auger and an anchor to whicha plurality ofguy wires or rods may be attached, the principal objects of theinvention beingto provide a device of this character which may be easily and quickly set for firmly anchoring the guy ropes or to hold. v v I In accomplishing these and other objects of the invention I have provided improved details of structure, the preferred forms of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:

. Fig. l is an elevational embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a slightly modified form of the device.

Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of a preferred form of auger. Fig. 4 is a similarview of a modified form of auger. I

Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of an eye nut for the anchor rod.

Referring more in detail to the view of a device drawing l designatesan auger which is preferably:

formed of melleable iron comprising a tubular body 2 having an exteriorly openportion which may be squared in cross-section, the t1p v 3 of the body 2 being tapered and provlded with grooves 4 in its side faces providing cutting edges 5. Extending about the body 1s a spiral auger blade 6 having its upper polnt initiated at about the transverse'center'of one of the fiat faces 7 ofthebody 2 and passing about the body to about the center of arods which it is intended ""In'the' upper end'of'the body 2 is a socket .8 squared at its upper end to receive a square fheaded' wrench and having a bottom portion {9 circular in cross] section and screw threadfed to'r'ece'i've the rod 10; In this form of the device the anchorrod 10 is applied" to the faugerbthrough the squared portion, of the socket and when the anchor is to be set a wrench comprising a 'hollow shank'having a head square 'on its exterior is fitted over the 1 rod and seated in the socket portion 8 to 'screw'the auger into the earth, the wrench being. removed overlthel rod when the auger .isiseti j v p The outer endof the rod 10 ca'rries'an' eye nut 'll having a plurality of eyes 12for re 'ceiving a plurality of guy ropes 13. i i

1 In 'the modified form illustrated in sand ithe wrench socket '9 is circular ,in lcross' section throughout itsentire depth'to' receive a rod 14: of'greater diameter than the frodllO and preferably of tubular construction fsoithat the larger rodmay serveas a wrench .for installing the auger, thereby avoidingthe necessity for a separate tool for that purpose, the modified form'being employed when'the auger is to be located at. considerable depth,

'in'which case a number of joints of rod 14:

maybe employed and'coupled until the propg er depth is reached. Y At the time ofmanufacture of the auger particularly of the form illustrated in Figs.

1 and 3, the auger, the rod and eye nut are assembled for storageor shipment. When the anchor is to be installed, the eye nut is removed from the rod, the wrench applied over the rod-into the squared socket of the auger, the eye nut replaced to hold the wrench to the auger, andthe auger screwed into theearth,

the form of the auger blade permitting placement ofthe auger without material disruption of the earth and any disruption occurring providing an upward compression of the earth to compact the earth and insure A ,9

' By locating the head of the wrench within holding of the anchor.

the auger socket as distinguished from an exterior application, breakage of the wrench due to splitting isavoided. When the'auger .7 has-been set, the eye nut is removed,-the

' may be applied tothe tubular rod in order I A guy anchor formed ofa single casting of V malleable material, including a body having tially centrally'from one of the faces of the Wrench removed from along the rod, the eye nut replaced, and the guy ropes attached to the eye nut.

In the modified form the application of the auger corresponds to that just described ex= cept that no additional wrench is required other than a pipe wrench or the like, which to supply the required force for turning the auger through the earth. The joints of the anchor rod may be provided with threaded or other suitable couplings (not shown) so that one joint may be applied to the other to permit installation of the auger to any desired depth.

What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

a pilot or tip at its lower end, of substantially pyramidal form, the faces of the pyramidal portion being recessed to provide cuttin portions at the corners, the facesof the tipdming continued upwardly of the body beyond the tip portion; a helical blade of substantially a single continuous convolution, having its lower or entering edge projecting substanbody, and its trailing or upper edge substantially overlying said leading edge; a wrench socket of polygonal section formed in the upper portion of the body and adapted internally to receive an anchor-drivingwrench, the socket extending to a substantial depth ithin the blade-carrying portion of the g body, whereby the tubular part of the body constitutes a combined hub for the blade and v a wrench-receiving seat; and a threaded socket extending below said wrench socket for detachably engaging a threaded end of an anchor rod.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.

THOMAS B; BASH.
