lJNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
JOHh BAINES, OF PIQUA, OHIO.
FENCE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 351,244, dated October 19, 1886;
Application filed February 2, 1886. Serial No. 190,574. (X model.)
To all whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, J OI'IN BAINES, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Piqua, State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvementsiu Fences; and I do hereence being had to the accompanying drawings,
which form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of my improved fence, showing the base of one Fig. 2 is a similar view of one of the posts, and Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of one of the posts and of the rails.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
My invention has relation to that class of fences in which the posts are supported upon metallic feet or bars secured to a suitable base with their lower ends; and it consists in the improved construction and combination of parts of the same, as hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, the letters A indicate the posts, which are preferably made tapering toward their upper ends, and
which have their lower ends secured between the upper ends of two metallic feet or bars, 13 and 0, the lower ends, D, of which are bent outward and perforated for the reception of 3 5 fastening-bolts E, which pass into the bases F,
which may be of metal,stone,wood, or any other suitable and accessible material. The upper end of one of the feetis bent outward to form a lip or shoulder, G, and the lower notched 0 end of a cleat, H, rests upon this shoulder,
with its notch I fitting upon the shoulder. I
This cleat is recessed at intervals upon the inner side, and the rails or boards J rest in these recesses K, and are held clamped between the Loops L, preferably of wire, fit around the post and cleat at its upper and lower end, and may by sliding them downward. upon the post clamp the cleat more firmly against the post, the post being tapering.
In this manner the rails or boards will be supported upon the post without the use of nails or similar fastening means, preserving them intact, and the rails or boards will be held at their proper mutual distances by the recesses.
If, by reason of the rails or boards becoming seasoned, the latter should shrink, or the posts or cleats should shrink, so that the loops which secure the cleats to the postsshould becomeloose, they may be slid downward upon the post,which increases in thickness toward its lower end, the loops thus being tightened and the cleat drawn toward thepost, and the cleat rests upon the shoulder formed by the upper outwardly-bent end of one of the feet of the fence-post, which will prevent the cleat from sinking upon the post, retaining the rails or boards of the fence in their proper level.
The loops are preferably, for reasons of simplicity and economy, made of wire having the ends twisted together; but it follows that they may be made in anyother suit-able manner.
The cleat is preferably formed with the recesses in its inner side; but the cleat may simply hold the rails by being drawn/tightly toward the fenee-post, clamping the rails firmly, the cleats being made with plain inner faces.
It will be seen that the fence may be quickly and easily constructed, and by forcing the loops upward upon the posts and cleats the cleats may be loosened and the rails removed, when the posts may be removed, if desired.
The feet raise the lower ends of the posts above the ground and prevent their rotting,-
and the bases are preferably made of stone or a similar non-corroding or indestructible material, although wood or metal may be used.
I am aware that rail and board fences have been constructed. by attaching the rails or boards to the posts by means of cleats, and that supports for the cleats have been attached -to the faces of the posts, and that cross-pieces have been attached to the lower ends of posts, and do not claim such construction, broadly, but
I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States- The combination of rails or boards with the within-described fencepost, consisting of al base-piece, a'pair of iron legs, has its upper shoulder, and a main upright '55- notched at its lower end, resting upon said shoulder, and wire bands, substantially as described and set forth.
end bent outwardly to form a presence of two witnesses.
