UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
BENJAMIN-SCARLES, OF CLINTON, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO THE CLINTON WIRE CLOTH COMPANY, OF SAME PLACE.
WIRE FENCE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent'N. 353.328, dated November 30, 1886,
Application tiled August 13, 1884. Serial No. 140.4l7. (No inndcl.) Patented in England August 26, 1884, No. 11,662.
I0` all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, BENJAMIN SoAELEs, of Clinton, in the count-y ot' Worcester, State of Massachusetts, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Fences, (for which I have obtained a patent in Great Britain, No. 11,662. dated August 26, 1884,) of which the following is a description suficiently full, clear, and exact to enable any person skilled in the art or science to which said invention appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specilication, in which- Figure l is a front elevation of the top portion of one of the pickets with the cap attached and a wire composed of four strands having a single hitch taken around the picket; Fig. 2, a transverse section taken on the dotted line x x in Fig. 5; Fig. 3, a transverse section showing a moditication'of the picket; Fig. 4, a perspective View of the top portion of a picket, showing the iange f or attaching the cap; Fig. 5, a front elevation of a portion of a picket anda wire composed of two strands having a single hitch taken around the picket; Fig. 6, a front elevation of a portion of a picket and a wire composed of two strands having a single hitch taken around the picket, but with the strands crossed.
Like letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different figures of the drawings.
VMy invention relates to that class of fences which are composed of horizontally-arranged wires carrying' a series of verticallyarranged pickets and supported at intervals by posts; and it consists in a novel construction and arrangement of the parts, as hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed, by which a more effective device of this character is produced than is now in ordinary use.
In fences of this description as ordinarily constructed it is very difficult to keep the pickets in proper position, or to prevent them from slipping down through the wires onto the ground, the pickets consisting usually of plain straight strips of metal, which are inserted between the strands of the wires, as shown in Fig. 9.
My improvement is designed to obviate this objection; and to that end I make useof means which will be readily understood by all conversant with such matters from the following explanation.
In the drawings, A represents the picket, B the cap, and C the wires. The picket is composed of a thin strip of sheet metal cor-` rugated longitudinally, as shown in Figs. 2 and 6. in the modification seen in Fig. 3, or in any other suitable form, and may be made-of cast instead of sheet metal, if preferred. The wires are preferably composed of two strands, as shown in Figs. 2, 5,and 6, but may be composed of four strands, as shown in Fig. l, or more, if necessary. Y
One essential feature of my invention consists in taking a hitch by passing one or more of the strands of which the wire is composed one or more times completely around the picket, thereby securely binding the picket into the fence and preventing it from becoming loose or getting out of position.
In Fig. 5 the strand d is represented as carried directly across the face of the picket, as seen at t; but the strand m is carried under the strand d, as seen at f, thence across the back of the picket, thence to the front over the strand d, as seen at Z, thence across the face of the picket,'as seen at r, thence across the back of the picket again, thence over the strand d, as seen at t', after which it is twisted with the strand d to form the wire C.
In Fig. 6 the wire m, in making the circuit of the post to form a hitch, is represented as carried across the Wire d on the face of vthe post, as shown at v.
When four wires are used, the hitch maybe made by passing two of them completely around the post, as shown in Fig. 1,0r by passing one, two, or three, as may be preferred, completely around the post. t
To make the wires hug the picket with greater tenacity, or to produce additional friction between the parts, the wires are bent into the corrugations, as shown at z in Fig. 2, by means of any proper tool for that purpose, although I deem this unnecessary when a proper It may also be corrugated as shown hitch is taken with one or more of the strands around the body of the picket.
A tongue or projection, w, is formed on the top of the picket A for securing the cap B, the flange being bent outwardly through aside opening. h, in the cap and turned down. This tongue may be formed integral with the body.
of the picket, or consist of a separate piece riveted thereto, as shown in Fig. l.
It will be understood that as many wires are to be employed as may be required to make the fence ot proper height and strength, also, that as many pickets maybe used as necessary.
l do not conine myself to corrugating the pickets when the cap B is to be att-ached thereto, as plain ones may be employed to good advantage, although I deem the corrugated ones preferable, as they are lighter, much stronger, and give the fence a more iinished appearance.
In constructing my improvedfence any suitable means may be employed for twisting the wires between the pickets, and also for inserting the pickets at regular intervals, as Well as for taking the bitches around the pickets.
The posts of the fence are not shown, these not being considered essential in exemplifying my invention. l,
Having thus explained my invention, what l cla-im isl. ln a wire fence, the combination, with two or more fence-wires, of acorrugated picket engaged by both of said fence-wires, one and the same strand of one of said fence-wires completely encircling the picket, while one or more of the strands of the same fence-wire pass upon one side only of the picket, the strands of the double fence-wirebeing twisted together on opposite sides ofthe picket, and the strands on the same side of the picket being bent into the same corrugation therein, substantially as described.
2. The sheetfmetal picket A, provided with an upwardly-extending tongue, W, in combination with the cap B, provided with the slot h, said tongue heilig bent outward through said slot and holding said cap in position, substantially as described. y
