Description

4UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
JOHNW. LARMORE, OF HARRISON, OHIO.
IM PR'OVENI ENT |N` FI El..D-FENCES.
To all lwhom "it may concern Be it known that I, JOHN W. LARMORE, of Harrison, Hamilton county, Ohio, have invented a new and usefulField-Fence; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description thereof,reterence being had to the accompanying drawings, making part of this speciiication.
The object of this invention is a cheap, quickly-erected, and durable field-fence that will shade and occupy as little ground as possible, will afford no harbor for vermin, and which is better braced than, and not so invisible as, the ordinary wire fence.
Figure l is a perspective view of two eightfoot panels of my fence. Fig. 2 is an. axial section through one of my posts. Fig. 3 shows a modification of my post.
A is a post of malleable or wrought iron, made tapering from base to summit, and provided with round tenons B O at bottom and top, respectively.
Projecting laterally and upward from Athe side of the post is a vertical series of clips or ears, D, whose distance from the side of the post is such as to receive a wire, E, of suitable thickness. These clips are made thin enough to be capable of being clinched over toward the side of the post, so as to secure the wire simply and effectually by that means.
Two rows of clips may be provided on diametrieally-oppcsite sides of the post, and the clips in the respective rows may alternate in height, as in. Figs. l and 2, or may correspond in height, as in Fig. 3.
The lower tenon, B, is driven forcibly into a circular drill-hole in a stone base, F, which base may bea rough slab of rock, such as may be found in great abundance in most lime and sand stone districts.
The upper tenon, O, enters an auger-hole in a sixteen-foot rider or scantlin g, G. The ends of the scantling are gained, g, so as to form a half-lap with the scantlings next in order.
The posts may be forged solid, of X form, out of wrought-iron, or may be cast or drawn into the hollow tapering form of the present illustration, and rendered malleable in the usual way.
Itis believed that this fence combines the desiderata of a field-fence more perfectly than any heretofore devised. It is very quickly put up. The bases and riders may be prepared on slack and rainy days, and the wires, being simply laid in the clips, are secured by bending the tips of the latter toward the side of the post by the tap of a hammer or otherwise. Should a clip be broken oli' on one side, the post is still available upon the other side.
The fence affords no harbor for vermin, and if occasionally coated with tar or paint may be made to last indefinitely.
The wires being simply laid in the clips and secured by clinching, the latter are not kinked or rendered unavailable in resetting, and are easily and quickly removed by opening the clips should it be desired to shift the fence or to lay the posts over to avoid the devastations of a freshet.
The wooden rider has, in connection with a fence of this class, several important uses. lt
Vaffords a plain demarkation or obstacle to horses and other stock, which, in play or sudden fright, frequently injure themselves by running violently against the wires. It also acts to brace the fence, and affords a means of .crossing the fence without injuring the wires.
I claim herein as new and of my inventionl. The metallic post A, having the vertical series of flexible ears or clips D to receive and secure the wires in the manner described.
2. A held-fence composed of the following elements, to Wit: a metallic post, A, havinga bottom tenon, B, to enter a stone foot or base, F, and a top tenon, C, to enter a wooden rider, G, and having a series of ears or clips, D, for the reception of suitable wires E.
In testimony'of which invention I hereunto set my hand.
JOHN W. LARMORE.
