UNTED ST EDWVIN GILBERT, OF GEORGETOIVN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO THE GIL- BERT & BENNETT MANUFACTURING COMPANY, OF SAME PLACE.
FENCE SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 412,954, dated October 15, 1889.
Application filed February 25, 1889. Serial No. 301,046. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, EDWIN GILBERT, of Georgetown, in the county of Fairficld and State of Connecticut, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Fence-Posts,
of which the following is a specification.
My improvement relates to fence-posts used in conjunction with a wire-fence web, which latter is secured to the post.
I will describe in detail a fence-post embodying my improvement, and then point out the novel features in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a fencc-post embodying I 5 my improvement and a portion of a wire fence web, together with a top rail. Fig. 2 is a section thereof, taken on the plane of the line 00 at, Fig. 1,
Similar letters of reference designate cor- 2o responding parts in both the figures.
A designatesa fence-post. This fence-post is made from a metallic tube. A slot a is formed in the tube, extending for a distance in the direction of the length of the tube and having a closed lower end, but the upper end of which opens upon the top of the tube. A portion of the post at, below the slotct, is unbroken and tubular. In the example of my improvement shown the lower end por- 0 tion b of the tube is flattened out, so as to form a driving-point Combined with the post is a cap 13, which cap may be secured upon the post by screw-threads, or otherwise. The cap B is provided with slots 0, extending 3 5 vertically and arranged opposite each other, so that when the cap is upon the post the slots therein will be coincident with the slot a in the post.
wise formed a horizontally-extending aperture d, which aperture is adapted to receive a top rail C. The slots 0 in the cap in the example of my improvement shown open into the aperture d.
E designates a wire-fence web. This fenceweb is to be received within the slots a of the 5 post, and may be secured therein by means of bolts 0r rivets passing through the post. The web also extends into the slots 0 in the cap. If the top rail C is slotted longitudinally upon one side, as it may be, the web E will also extend into the slot in the top rail. In such case the web may be secured within the top rail by means of hooks, in a manner shown in United States Letters Patent No. 402,732, granted to me May 7, 1889.
In the construction of my improved fence post I may use old boiler-tubes or any other iron tube, and saw the slot a therein. The cap B may be cast.
This post is very cheaply made, besides being very durable, and is adapted to be readily combined with a wire-fence web and with a top rail.
Vhat I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The combination, with a fence-post made of a single tube slotted longitudinally to receive a wire-fence web, of a cap for said post, also slotted to receive the wire web and provided with an aperture to receive a top rail, substantially as specified.
