Y PORCH COLUMN BASE Filed Nov. 14, 1956 7 V 01/ may/Ar INVENTOR fitates The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in supporting bases particularly for porch columns or posts, and has for its primary object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this character which is waterproof, thus protecting the post or column against rotting and prolonging the life thereof substantially.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a base of the aforementioned character comprising novel means for spacing the column or post from the porch floor.

Other objects of the invention are to provide a porch column base of the character described which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, compact, of light weight, attractive in appearance and which may be manufactured and installed at low cost.

These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being bad to the accompanying drawing forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view, showing a porch column base embodying the present invention installed;

Figure 2 is a view in vertical section therethrough; and

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises a substantially square open frame or sleeve 4 of cast aluminum. Opposite sides of the frame 4 are provided with vertical openings 5 for the reception of countersunk screws 6 for positively securing said frame in position on the floor of a porch, as indicated at 7. Screws 6 are anchored in lead plugs 8 which are provided therefor in the concrete porch floor 7.

The frame or sleeve 4 is of a shape and dimensions atent O ICC to snugly receive the lower end portion of a solid wooden porch post or column 9. Secured diagonally by countersunk screws 10 beneath the lower end of the column 9 is a plate 11 of cast aluminum which is engageable on the floor 7 for spacing said column therefrom.

It is thought that the invention will be readily understood from a consideration of the foregoing. Briefly, the plate 11 is mounted on the lower end of the column 9 and the frame 4 is slipped on said column. The assembly is then positioned on the concrete floor 7 in which the lead plugs 8 have been previously inserted. Screws 6 are then inserted in the openings 5 and threaded into the plugs 8 for positively anchoring the frame 4 in position on the floor. As herein before stated, the plate 11 prevents the column 9 from contacting the concrete floor 7. The screws 6 and 10 are preferably galvanized for durability. The frame 4 is preferably of substantially the cross-sectional shape shown to advantage in Figure 2 of the drawmg.

The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

A porch column support of the character described comprising: a substantially square open frame of cast aluminum adapted to be mounted on a porch floor, said frame for the reception of the lower end portion of the column, said frame having vertical openings therein, screws in said openings for securing the frame to the floor, and a substantially rectangular cast aluminum plate mounted diagonally beneath the lower end of the column and engageable with the floor for supporting the column in elevated position thereon.
