H. L. WATTS.
HORSESHOE.
Patented $ept. 13, 1881.
UNITED STATES ATi ENT OFFICE.
HENRY L. \VATTS, OF ST. PETER, MINNESOTA.
HORSESHOE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 246,928, dated September 13, 1881.
Application filed July], 1881. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY L. WATTS, a citizen of the United States, residing at St. Peter, in the county of Nioollet and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Horseshoes; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
The object of this invention is to produce a horseshoe that can be readily adapted for light or heavy draft and be suited to any road or weather without removing the shoe from the foot, and it consists in providingahorseshoe with a calk sprung in a recess provided for it inthe shoe; also,in providing a plate of metal, leather, or other material to be placed between the calk and the shoe, thereby making the shoe elastic.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a shoe constructed according to my invention, the parts being separated. Fig.2 is a perspective view of the same with the parts together or in place. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section. Fig. at is a perspective view of a blank before being bent to form the shoe proper. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the blank before being bent to form the calk.
The shoe A is formed of a bar of metal, pro vided with a thin web, a, as seen in Fig. 4, which forms a recess, a, to receive the calk when the shoe is bent, as seen in Fig. 1.
The calk Bis preferably made of V form, tapering downward on each side from the top, and is provided on one side with a groove, 1), which forms a continuous projection, b, from end to end of the blanlgwhich, when the blank is bent to form the calk, (see Fig. 1,) fits the recess a in the shoe when said calk is sprung into its place.
When it is desired to make the shoe elastic, I place between'the calk and shoe an elastic material, D, such as rubber or leather; and I sometimes use a metallic plate, 0, when it is desired to use medicine for softening or otherwise affecting the hoof, which medicine is placed between said plate 0 and the hoof. The plate 0 is also used in winter weather for preventing balling up.
The shoe A can, if desired, be used without the calk B, should it be desired to use the horse at any time for very light work.' The calk can be taken out and put in at any time by any one by means of a tool made for the purpose.
I do not wish to contine myself to theV form of calk, as any shape could be used. Itis also not necessary for the calk to extend entirely around the shoe, as shown, as it might be desirable in some cases to use a toe-calk only. The calk could also be formed of a plate with pyramidalorother projections. I merely speak of the V form as preferable.
Having thus described my invention, the fol- 1owing is what-I claim as new therein and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. The horseshoe A, formed with eb a, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
2. The combination, with the horseshoe A, formed with web a, of calk 13, provided with recess 1), substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
3. The combination, with the horseshoe A, formed with web a, of calk B and plate 0, as and for the purpose set forth.
4:. The combination of shoe A, calk B, plate 0, and elastic material D, as and for the purpose described.
HENRY L. WATTS.
W itnesses:
J. WINDELSCHAFER, T. G. CARTER.
