BARB'ED WIRE PENGE.
No. 248,374. Pajented Oct. 18,1881.
l Wm- UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
ISRAEL R. WHITEMAN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS BARBED-\WIRE FENCE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 248,374, dated October 19, 1881.
Application filed August 18, 1881.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ISRAEL 1t. WHI'IEMAN, of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Barbed-Wire Fences, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in wire fences wherein one or m ore of the strands forming the cable is composed of short sections having their ends pointed and thrown out at right angles to the line of the cable to form barbs; and my invention consists in uniting the short pointed sections together by means of a short link or band, through which the barbed ends of the said sections are thrust.
My invention will be more fully understood from the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a device embodyingmy invention; Fig. 2, a section on line 00 0c of Fig. 1; Fig. 3, a detail plan view of the connecting-link; and Fig. 4 is a detail plan view of one of the short sections of pointed wire.
In the drawings, similar letters of reference indicate like parts.
A and A represent the strands of wire forming the barbed cable. The strand A is composed of short sections a, having pointed ends bent at an angle, so as to form barbs a at each end.
(No model.)
b is the connecting-link, which is preferably stamped out of sheet metal or a flat wire strip, and is'provided with an oblong hole, b,in the center for the insertion of the sections a.
In constructing the sectional strand the barbs a of the two contiguous sections are thrust through the oblong hole I) in the connecting-link b, so as to project in opposite directions, when the link I) should be given a blow on its edge, which will somewhat flatten the same and indent the wires, as shown in Fig. 2, thus securing the sections together firmly.
The barbed sectional strand may be used alone, or it may be twisted with one or more similar strands, or plain wires, if preferred.
The link I) may be provided with a separate hole for each of the sections, if preferred, instead of one oblong hole, as shown.
What 1 claim is- The twisted-wire cable having one or more of its strands composed of pointed sections having their ends bent at an angle to form barbs, and united together by connecting-links, substantially as described.
