CHARLES J. MILLER, OF PLYMOUTHLMICHIGAN.
:FENCE-POST.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 577,193, dated February 16, 1897.
I Application filed April 27, 1896. Serial No. 589,265. (No model.)
T0 @ZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, CHARLES eLMILLEE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Plymouth, in the county of IVayne 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 improve the construction of fence-posts, to increase their strength, durability, and stability, and to enable fence-wires or wovenwire fencing to be readily attached to them without employing staples or similar fastening devices.
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 fence-post constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a side elevation, partly in section. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view.
' Like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.
l designates a fence-post composed of two similar sides 2 and 3. The upper portions of the sides,which are above the ground when the post is in use, are parallel and are connected by fastening devices at, and spacingsleeves 5 are interposed between them to preserve their parallelism. The lower portions of the sides are embedded in the ground and they diverge downwardly slightly, being connected by fastening devices 6, and having interposed between them spacing-sleeves 7, which gradually increase in length to the bottom of the post and which hold the spread portions of the sides inthe desired position.
The diverging of the lower portions of the sides increases the size of the bottom of the post, and the stability of the post is further increased by upper and lower anchors S, arranged in pairs and connected by fastening devices 9, which pass through the space between the sides of the post. Each pair of anchors is composed of two flat bars arranged on the edges of the sides of the post and cenn trally secured to the latter and crossing each other. The bars or anchors of each pair are arranged at an inclination, being inclined in opposite directions, and they project upward and downward from the post and enable the latter to obtain a firm hold on the ground, sufficient to withstand all the ordinary strains incident to its use.
The fastening devices 9, which connect the adjustable anchor-bars, are located in the spaces between the sides of the post and the connecting fastening devices thereof, and they are arranged above and contiguous to the adjacent spacing-sleeves to prevent the anchor-bars from accidentally slipping downward on the post and permitting the latter to be drawn outward.
The upper portions of the sides of the posts are provided at intervals with wire-receiving openings or perforations lO, which loosely receive the fence-wires without binding against them and which permit the fence-Wires to be readily drawn or stretched' through them. The side 2 of the post isprovided with entrance-slots ll, inclining downward from the .wire-receiving perforations or openings, and the other side 3 of the post is provided with entrance -slots inclining upward from the wire-receiving openings. duced in the registering openings through the oppositely-inclined slots in a slackened or loose condition, but after it is drawn taut it is impossible for the wire to leave the registering perforations or openin gs without again slackening it. By this construction fencewires may be readily attached to the post The wire is intro-v without employingstaples or similar fastening devices, and woven-wire fencing may be similarly secured to the post.
It will be seen that the fence-post is exceedingly simple and inexpensive in construction, that it possesses great strength, durability, and stability, and that it greatly facilitates the ready attachment of fence-wires or -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 I claim is-f A fence-post comprising two similar sides IOO l of the post and the connecting fastening devices thereof and arranged contiguous to the adjacent spacing-sleeves, whereby the anchor-bars are prevented from slipping downward on the post to retain the letter firmly in the ground and to prevent any accidental withdrawal or lateral movement of the saine, substantially as described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing :ts my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
CHARLES J. MILLER.
