CHARLES D. WRIGHT, OF NILES,.MICHIGAN.
FENCE-POST.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 510,625, dated December 12, 1893.
' Application filed July 12I 1893. Serial No. 480,282. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern,.-
Be it known that I, CHARLES D. WRIGHT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Niles, in the county of Berrien and State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Fence- Post, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in fence posts.
The object of the present invention is to provide a fence post, which may be readily and cheaply constructed, and which will be securely anchored in the ground, and adapted to withstand all the strains incident to Wire or other fences.
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 l is a perspective view of a fence post constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view. Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view, the section being taken through the lower anchor.|
Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.
l designates a cylindrical fence post constructed preferably of gas pipe or other tubing, and provided at its lower end with upper and lower anchors 2 and 3, which are spaced apart by an intermediate sleeve 4. Each anchor consists of a central vertical socket 5 and radial lianges 6, disposed vertically and having their outer edges beveled to enable them to be readily driven into the ground or otherwise secured in a post hole. The lower end of the post lis squared, and the lower anchor has its socket conforming to the conguration of the squared portion at its interior. The squared portion eiectually prevents the lower anchor from turning on the post, and the anchors are capable of securely supporting the fence post in a vertical position, and of enabling it to withstand the strain incident to tightening fence wires and the like. Fence wires 7 are secured to the post by hook bolts 8 having their shanks arranged in horizontal perfor-ations of the post and provided with securing nuts.
The fence post may be readily constructed of cast o gas pipe or other tubing, and the anchors may be conveniently constructed by welding plates or pieces to sockets to form the flanges; and an ornamental head or top 9 can be readily attached to the upper end of the fence post.
It will be seen that the fencepost is simple and inexpensive in construction, and that it is provided with anchors capable of maintaining it firmly in an upright position.
The fence post is notched at 10 adjacent to the hooks of the bolts to enable the fence Wires to be firmly clamped and securely held in proper position.
Changes in the form, proportion and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacricing any of the advantages of this invention.
What I claim is The combination of a cylindrical fence post having its lower end squared, the upper and lower anchors arranged on the lower portion of the fence post and composed of central vertical sockets and continuous unbroken radial vertically disposed flanges adapted to be readily driven into the ground, the socket of the lower anchor having a squared opening to conform to the configuration of the squared portion of the fence post, and a spacing sleeve arranged on the post and interposed betweenA the upper and lower anchors, substantially as described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two Witnesses. l
