O. M. KNOX. MBTALLIG POST 0R BASE FOR muons.

No. 486,973. Patented Nov. 29,1892.

' UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

ORVILLE M. KNOX, OF ONEIDA, NEW YORK.

METALLIC POST OR BASE FOR FENCES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 486,973, dated November 29, 1892.

- Application filed June 30, 1892- Serial No. 438,604. (No model.)

.To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ORVILLE M. KNOX, a citizen of theUnited States, residing at Oneida, in the county of Madison and State of New York,have invented a new and useful Metallic Post and Base for Fences, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to a novel and useful construction of fence-posts and base portion or foot-piece for the same, and particularly refers to the formation and construction of the latter.

My invention has for its object to meet all the requirements of strength, durability, and inexpensiveness, and for the attainment of such objects comprises certain details of construction, arrangement, and combination of parts, all of which will be more fully described hereinafter, and the specific points of novelty in which will be pointed out in the appended claim.

Referring to the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the post in its socket in the foot-piece. Fig. 2 is a transverse vertical section. Fig. 3 is a top plan View.

Like letters of reference indicate like'or corresponding parts in the several views of the drawings.

A indicates the post, and B the base or footpiece. The latter is formed in one piece, of metal, and comprises the spear-point a, having the radial projecting webs 1) extending outwardly at right angles to each other and tapering downwardly, converging together at the lower end of the foot-piece, forming the spear-point.

0 indicates an inverted solid cone-shaped, portion formed integral with the spear-point a, and having its circular plane or top forming the upper face of the foot-piece B and constituting the support for the post A, which is inserted therein through a rectangular socket d of the requisite size and depth to accommodate the said post A. The bottom of this recess communicates with the exterior by means of four small perforations to, ap-

proximately at the point of the cone and run-- ning severally from the bottom of the recess or socket through the wall and communicating with the angular channels formed by the radially-projecting Webs of the spearrpoint.

in alignment with the perforationsf.

The postA is of suitable material and shape and is provided with a series of perforations g g, arranged vertically at relative and prescribed distances apart and severally designed to permit the insertion of staples h h, which are rigidly held and clinched therein in the manner shown in Fig. 1, serving as retaining-eyes for the longitudinal wires i 2', forming the wire panels of the fence.

As shown clearlyin Figs. 1 and 3, J J indicate four radially-projecting wings or breasters formed integral with and extending at right angles to each other from the cone portion 0 in the same vertical plane as the webs b of the spear-point a and having their upper edges in the same horizontal plane with the face of the portion 0. The width or depth of each wing J is approximately equal to the altitude or axis of the cone 0, and the lower edge of each wing J is beveled on both sides, thus making a knife-edge on the lower edge of each wing, while its outer side or face, which comes laterally in contact with the surrounding earth, is rather broad or blunt. Thus it will be understood that when the foot-piece B is driven into the ground the spear-point aand the lower knife-edges of the wings J will facilitate the descent of the said foot-piece, while the lateral extremities of said wings will serve to impact the earth on each side of the footpiece and, furthermore, will when in position severally act as breasters to prevent the lateral tipping, sagging, or displacement of the said foot-piece, and consequently of the fence.

Allthe several component parts of the footpiece B are made of onepiece of metal, and the whole is designed to be driven into the ground, the cone portion 0 acting as a drivingsurface, while the wings J J serve to firmly embed the base in the surrounding soil.

Having thus described my invention, what 7 I claim is- The herein-describedfoot-piece for fenceposts,'the same formed of one piece of metal outer edges squared and their lower edges and consisting of the inverted cone-shaped beveled to form cutting-shoulders, substanbody portion having a post-receiving socket tially as specified.

5 to form drainage-openings, the four-winged my own I have hereto affixed my signature in spear-point at the lower end of the body porthe presence of two witnesses. tion, whose edges are tapered toward the lower extremity thereof and are square, and ORVILLE M. KNOX. the radial wings J, extending from the body Witnesses: 1o portion above the spear-point and in line with .TNO. F. RYAN,

the Wings thereof, said'wings J having their THOS. A. DEVEREUX.

in its upper side, Whose bottom is perforated In testimony that I claim the foregoing as 15
