Description

UNITED sTATEs PATENT oEFIcE.

SAML. E. TOMPKINS, 0F NEW'ARK, NE7 JERSEY.

SADDLE.

Specification of Letters Patent No. 23,411, dated March 29, 1859.

To aZZ 'whom it may concern:

Be it known that T, SAMUEL E. ToMrxiNs, of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Tmproved Metallic Saddletree for Harness- Saddles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making a part of this specification, in which- Figure 1, is a vertical section of my invention, taken in the line a?, ai, Fig. Q. Fig. 2, a back view of the same; Fig. 3, a section of the same, taken in the line y, y, Fig. 2. Fig. il, an inverted plan of the same. Fig. 5, a plan or top view of the same, the cantle being bisected as indicated by the line e, e, Fig. 1.

Similar letter of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several figures..

This invention consists in so constructing or forming the saddle tree, that large trees for gig harness saddles and the like may be of metal and have sufficient strength with a requisite degree of lightness, the tree at the same time being so formed as to admit of the ready and secure attachment to the treev of the material which receives the nails of the covering and also admitting of the secure attachment of a crupper loop which is also made to serve as a support to the material which receives the nails of the covering. A bridge or safety guard for the' back band is also obtained, and the whole tree cast in a single piece, the crupper loop being the only piece that is made separate and attached by rivets.

To enable those skilled in the art to fully understand and construct my invention T will proceed to describe it.-

The sides a, a, of the tree are of the usual form, but the front bow-piece b, is made to project up considerably higher than the center portion and a head c, is formed thereon, at the crown of the bow. This head is a ledge or projection on the bow-piece, and it projects at its front end over the front side of the bow-piece, as shown clearly in Figs. 1, 8 and This head c, has a square opening CZ, made through it to receive the tang of'the check-rein hook and hold the same firmly in proper position, as shown in red, Fig. 3.

The back or cantle bow piece e, does not rise or extend so high as the front bowpiece 7J, and the cantle f, projects upward and in an inclined position from said bow, as shown clearly in Figs. 1 and 3. The central bow-piece g, is lower than either b, o1' e, and sufficient spaces g', are allowed between said bow-pieces to avoid all superfluous metal, it being understood that the above named parts are all cast `in one piece.

The cantle f, is of the usual form and made concave at its outer side to receive composition, leather or any suitable material 1, which may be secured in the concave by rivets in order to receive the nails of the covering.

The under side of the cantle bow-piece e, has a recess formed on it to receive the plate z', of the crupper loop j, said plates being secured to the bow-piece e, by rivets a". This plate i, projects outward or beyond the back edge of the bow-piece e, so as to forma support for the nailing material Z2, at the back part of the tree, the material Zc, being so cut as to rest on the outer or exposed part of the plate z', and extend down on each side of the tree on its outer surface, and is secured thereto by rivets bx, see more particularly Figs. 4L and 5.

On the front bow piece b, nailing material Z, is secured. This material Z, passes underneath the projecting front edge of the head c, and is secured thereto by rivets c", and said material also passes down on the outer surface of each side of the bow-piece Z), and is secured thereto by rivets dx.

From the above description it will be seen that the plate z', of the crupper loop y', serves in addition to the rivets bx, to retain the material Zr, in proper position so that the same cannot be casually detached. The nailing material Z, also may be readily attached to the front bow-piece b, and firmly secured, while in consequence of having the head c, project over or beyond the bow-piece b, the latter may be castwith the other part of the tree. It will also be seen that the crupper loop j, if broken may be readily detached and replaced by a new one and that the central bow g, admits of the back band passing between it and the covering m, shown in red,-said bow g, or safety guard as it is technically termed keeping the back band of the saddle from the back of the horse. This formation of vthe tree admits of the covering m, being secured thereon so as to form a neat and handsome seat without any great trouble on the part of the operator. The covering m, of the seat is drawn over rests on the outer part of the plate z', of 'they crupper loop.

By this invention the saddle tree may be cast in one piece, and but little weight ofn metal 1s necessary 1n order to insure requi-l site strength. By having the parts all connected or cast in one piece, greater uni-- formity will be obtained 1n the constructlon of the saddles, and they also can be made with greater facility than usual.

back of the horse. broadly the above; but,

when the parts are placed relatively with each other, so as to admit of being cast in one piece to form a new and improved saddle tree as herein set forth.

2. I further claim in connection withthe saddle tree formed as above, the crupper loop j, attached to the cantle bow-piece e, by 4 means of the plate z', substantially as and for I am aware that cast metal saddle trees have been previously used and also that; safety guards or bridges have been attached; to trees to keep the back band from the? I therefore do not claimf the purpose .specilied SAML. E. TOMPKINS.
