UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

JAMES JAR-PRINTER, OF NEW HOPE, NEW YORK.

FENGE-POST'DI 'tlVER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 224,578, dated February 17, 1880.

Application filed September 23, 1879 i To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JAMES CARPENTER, of New Hope, in the county of Cayuga, in the State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Devices for Driving Fence-Posts, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to an exceedingly sim ple, cohvcnient, and efiicient implement designed for driving iron posts or pipes into the ground, and which may be used either as a sledge or in the manner'of a. weighted drop or a pile-driver, and is readily applied to the object to be driven, easily operated thereon without the. aid of auxiliary mechanical appliances, and readily removed. therefrom without the inconvenience and delay of uncoupling or disjoining the members of the implement or loaving parts of same on the article driven.

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 illustrates the method of applying my improved implement to the post designed to be driven. Fig. 2 shows the same in position for operation. Fig. 3 isan isometric view of the tube or handle and the sledge separated from each other, and Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section of the'implement applied to the post.

Similar letters of reference indicate corre sponding parts.

A represents the weighted block, in the form of asledge or hammer, provided with a screwtln'eaded socket, 8, extending part way the depth of the sledge, and terminating with a conical or spheroidal cavity, 0, therein, for the purpose hereinafter demonstrated. B denotes the handle of the sledge, consisting of an iron or steel pipe having a threaded end, which is screwed into the socket S of the sledge.

This implement is operated as follows: The post or pipe to be driven is inserted into the handle B, which may be placed with its open end upward, as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, or laid on the ground, or in any other desirable and convenient posit-ion. The apparatus thus connected is then erected and brought into proper position for driving the post or pipe 1 in its designated position.

The driving is accomplished by raising and dropping the implemcn t, the descent being arrested by the collision of the sledge A with the end of the post or pipe I, and the force resulting therefrom drives the post or pipe 1? into the ground.

The conical or spheroidal cavity catthe end of the socket S prevents jammingor in nring the end of the post or pipe driven. The handle B,furnishes the means for guiding the ob ject to be driven, and, being entirely uncon fined in its upward movement, it is readily withdrawn from the post or pipe driven. If the same is to be driven deeper than the length of the handle B \villadmit in its application, as before described, theimplemcnt is removed 65 from the object to be driven and used as a sledge for the attainment of the said object.

I do not claim, broadly, the application ot'o weighted drop sliding on the objectto be driven, as I am aware the same is not now.

What I do claim as my invention, and de sire to secure by Letters .latent, is-* The improved implement for driving iron posts or pipes, consisting of the sledge A, having the tubular handle B, adapted to slide on the object to be driven and unconfined in its upward movement, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed my name in the presence of two attesting wit-- -nesscs, at Syracuse, in the county of Onon- 8o daga and State of New York, this 12th day of September, 1879.
