G.. S. SEAMAN. SHOE FOR BRIDGES..

No. 517,938. Patented Apr. 10, 1894.,

UNITED STATE PATENT OFFICE.

GEORGE s. SEAMAN, OF ALVARADO, TEXAS.

SHOE FOR-BRIDGES.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 517,938, dated April-19, 1894.

Application filed November 29, 1893. Serial No. 492,868. (No model.)

. and to provide a simple and inexpensive one,

which will securely hold the foot of an inclined brace, rafter, strut or the like to a horizontal, perpendicular or otherwise positioned girder, sill, or the like.

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 side elevation showing a shoe constructed in accordance with this invention, and shown applied. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the shoe.

Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.

l designates a shoe, constructed preferably of cast metal or other suitable material, and consisting of a'flat plate or base 2, adapted to rest upon a girder, sill, or other timber 3, and a flange arranged at the front end of the base or plate 2 and disposed transversely thereof and located perpendicular thereto. The shoe is adapted to receive the foot 5 of A an inclined brace, rafter, or strut 6, which fits against the outer face of the base or plate 2 and the inner side of the transverse flange 4..

The foot of the brace 6 is secured against lateral movement by a vertically disposed tapering wedge-shaped projection 6, arranged on the inner face of the transverse flange 4; and adapted to engage the foot of the brace. The projection is formed integral with the shoe, and by being wedge-shaped is adapted to embed itself readily into the brace.

The shoe is provided on its bottom with an integral depending longitudinal flange 7, which is perforated to form ears, and which is adapted to receive bolts 8 passed through the girder or sill 3. The parts are further secured together by a vertical bolt 10, which is arranged in a perforation 11 of the shoe and which passes through both the brace and the girder or sill.

Itwill be seen that the shoe is simple and comparatively inexpensive in construction, and that it is strong and durable and capable of securely holding the meeting ends of braces, struts, girders, sills and the like.

Changes in the form, .proportion and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.

What Iclaim is A shoe for bridges and the like, comprising a base or plate provided on its bottom with a longitudinal flange, perforated to form ears and adapted to receive bolts, and an outward extending transverse flange arranged at the front of the base or plate and provided on its inner face with an integral wedge-shaped projection, substantially as and for the purpose described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signaturein the presence of two witnesses.

GEORGE S. SEAMAN.
