FENCE-POST.

SPECIFICATION forming pari: of Letters Patent No. 314,303, dated larch 24, 17.885.

Application led August 19, 1884. (No model.)

To all w71 om, it 71u17/ concern.-

Beit known that I, BENJAMIN B. ADAMS,

of Roswell, in the county ot' Lincoln and Territory of New Mexico, have invented a new and useful u'iprovernent in Metallic Posts, of which the following is a full, clear, and cXact description.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part oi' this specification, in which similar letters ot' reference indicate corresponding parts in all t-he figures.

Figure 1 is a sectional elevation 'of one ot' my improved posts shown as set in the ground and ready to havethe lower anchor-bar driven into place. Fig. 2 is thesame section as Fig. l, but showing the lower anchor-bar driven into place. Fig. 3 is a sectional elevation of the postl shown as turned one-quarteraround. Fig. 4 is a sectional plan view ofthe post, ta ken through the line x x, Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a side elevation of an anchored bar. Fig. 6 is un elevation ot the saine turned one-quarter around.

The object of this invention is to provide metallic posts for fences, telegraphwires, snubhing-1: osts, and other uses constructed in such a manner that they can be readily and firmly secured in the ground.

The invention consists of the combinations of parts and their construction, substantially as hereinafter fully set forth and claimed.

A represents a tubular post,of iron or other suitable metal, made with a tapered point, B, at its lower end, so that it can be readily driven into the ground.

In ther lower part of the tubular post A, above the tapered point B and in the opposite sides of the said post, is formed a pair of openings, O, in which are inserted the inclined or curved points of the bar D. The bar D is slotted or split from its lower end nearly to its upper end, so that when the said bar is forced.

ted lines in Fig. l, or by othersuitable means, the arms D' ot the said bar D will be forced outward through the openings O, and will be curved upward, as shown in Fig. 2, so as to take a irmhold upon the ground, and thus anchor the post securely in place.

One, two, or more pairs ot' openings C and anchors D can be used. as may be desired. Vhen more than one anchor-bar is used, the upper end of each preceding anchorbar is so formed that it will spread the arms of the following bar, and cause them to pass out through the openings in thel post as the said bar is forced down through the interior of the post, as indicated in Fig. 3. NVith this construction the post will be held securely from rising out of the ground and from being. forced into au inclined position by lateral pressure.

I am aware ot' the existence of a fence-post having a casing within which is arranged a rod with its lower end connected to arms or prongs projecting through said casing; also, that it is old to make a spike with a vertical groove within which slides a web of abifurcated clincher` the lower ends ot' whose prongs arc spread apart by a shoulder upon said spike as said clincher is driven therein.

Having th usdescribed my invention,I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The post comprising-the pointed or tapered tube having just above said point apertures, and the split anchor-bars disposed in said tube through the apertures of the latter at right angles to each other, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

BENJAMIN B. ADAMS.
