AMOS \V. SPRINGER AND J OHN T. JACKSON, OF LEANDO,'IOTA.
Wl RE-STR ETCH ER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 449,808, dated April '7, 1891.
Application filed November 22, 1890. Serial No. 372,338. (No modeL) To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, AMOS W. SPRINGER and JOHN T. JACKSON, citizens of the United States, residing at Leando, in the county of Van Enron and State of Iowa, have invented a new and useful Wire-Stretcher, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in wire-stretchers.
The object of the present invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive tool adapted for use in constructing and repairing wire fences and capable of readily stretching and splicing wires and removing staples from fence-posts.
The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claim hereto appended.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a wire stretcher and splicer and staple-puller. Fig. 2 is a detail view of the lever.
Referring to the accompanying drawings,
1 designates a wire-stretcher, comprising a lever 2, adapted to be fulcrumed on a fencepost, and a hook 3, connected with the lever by a link 4 and adapted to engage the wire to be stretched. The end 5 of the lever is provided with teeth capable of readily engaging a post, and one end of the hook 3 is provided with a claw 6, formed by diverging hooked teeth, and the other end is provided with an opening or eye 7, adapted for the reception of the link 4. The link 4 engages notches 8 in the edge of the lever 2, to vary the leverage. The end 9 of the lever 2 is bifurcated,
and is provided with hooks 10, formed by bending the end of the hook on each side of the bifurcation. The lever is provided a short distance from the hooked end 9 with a slot 11, which is used in conjunction with the hooks 10 in splicing a wire, as will be readily understood by those skilled in the art. The end 5 0f the lever is employed for extracting staples from fence-posts, and they are taken out Without injury to themselves or to the wire which is fastened by them.
It will readily be seen that the tool is simple and inexpensive in construction, and is adapted to be readily used in tightening wires or splicing the same and for withdraw-.
ing staples when it is desired to move a fence.
What I claim is- A tool for stretching and splicing wire, comprising the lever provided intermediate of its ends with the notches 8 and having one end 5 provided with teeth adapted to engage a post, and having its other end 9 bifurcated and provided with the hooks 10, said lever being provided a short distance from its end 9 with aslot 11, the hook provided at one end with the claw and having an eye at the other end, and the link secured in the eye and engaging the said notches S of the lever, substantially as described.
' In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we have hereto afiixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
