E. KETOHUM. FENCE POST.

No. 606.558. Patented June -Z8, 189'8.

Wifgzsszs UNITED STATES PATENT OF ICE.

LOUIE E, KETGHUM, OF JER$EYVILLE, ILLINOIS.

FENCE-POST.

- srnorrlca riolyr' formingpart of Letters Patent No. 606,558,: dated June 25, 1898. hpplication filed-August 12,1897. smart. 647,984. opti al.)

To ctZZ whom it may-concern.-

Be itknown that IfLOUlE E. KEToHUM, a citizen of the UnitedjSt'at-es; residing at J erseyville, in the county of Jerseyand State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Fence-Post, of whichthe following is a specification. i. f,;-

Myinvention relates to fence-posts, and

- particularly to'an, improved construction of anchor adapted'especi'ally for use in connection with metallic posts to prevent with drawal or displacement of a post after it has been properly set'and'lalso to preventthe upheaval by frost or 'pther-cause, the'anchor, however,'not interfering with the driving of the P0511 Without previously preparing a h l therefor.- I

Further objects'and advantages of this invention will appear in the following description,.and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims. l: j

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of apost provided with an anchor constructedin accordance with "my invention, the post being of cross-sectionally-angular construction. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the same to show the preferred means for securing the anchor to apostfi Fig. 3 is a detail View of the" anchor applied in the operative position toa post constructed of channel-iron.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in allthe figures of the drawings.

The post-anchor constituting myinven-tion is adapted to be applied particularly to metallic posts which are designed to be driven into the soil without the previousformation of a post-hole, and in order thatthe anchor may be made separate from the post I haVe'ad pt ed a construction whereby it is applicable to posts of difierent cross-sectional shapes-f suchas angular, channeled, T-shaped, round,

or any other of the various forms used in this connection.- In the drawings I have deemed it'sufficient to'ill'ustrate 'the attachment as applied to only two of the above-mentioned forms-namely, angular and channeledbut as the nature of the invention is more fully disclosed it will be understood that the applicability of -the.-att,achment is not limited to the illustrated forms.

Referring to the drawings, 1 designates the anchor-plate or body portion, which is deta'chably secured to a post 2 in a positionparallel with the lineiof the fence by means of a bolt 3 or other equivalent fastening device, the bolt being preferable, for the reason that it provides for: applying the plate to a post and of detaching the same without inconvenience to the operator, and, furthermore, enables the attachinent to be applied to an old post by simplyproviding a suitable hole in the post for. the passage of the bolt.

- The plate forming the body portion of the anchor is tapered toward its lower end to facilitate the driving of the anchor with the post into the soil, the lower end of the post being sharpened or adapted for driving in any other suitable way. The blank from which the anchor-plate is formed is of approximately triangular shape, and the lateral angles thereof are upstruck or turned to ocagonal positionsJand thus the driving of the plate into the soil is facilitated.

The lower an gleor point of the blank is upturned to form a spur 5, occupying a position of forty-five or sixty degrees from the plane of the plate, inclining upwardly. Thus the outer side of this spur, combined With the plane of the body portion of the plate, forms a wedge which allows the anchor to be driven into the soil without unnecessary difficulty; but when the anchor has reached its proper depression any effort to raise the post will be resisted by this retaining-spur.

From the above description it will be seen that the anchor is preferably struck from a single blank of sheet metal and is designed to be detachably secured to a post of any ordinary cross-sectional construction, the lateral angles of the triangular blank being upturned to form ears to resist lnoveinent of the post in anchor and having its lower angle upturned to occupy an upwardly inclined position, whereby the driving of the anchor is facilitated, while the drawing of the same or the upheaval of the post by frost is prevented. The surface of the body portion of the plate prevents the lateral displacement of the post, and in practice I have found it desirable to sink the anchor to such a point that its upper edge is approximately six inches below the surface of the soil; but it is obvious that this may be varied to suit the character of the soil and the requirements of the fence in connection with which the anchor is employed.

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

Having described my invention, what I claim is 1. A fence-post having a Hat anchor-plate provided with lateral perpendicularly-disposed ears and an intermediate inclined retainingspur, and means for detachably securing the anchor-plate to the post, substantially as specified.

2. An anchor for fence-posts consisting of a plate having lateral upstruck ears arranged approximately perpendicular to the plane of the body portion of the plate, and a lower upstruck spur arranged at an upward inclination from the plane of the body portion of the plate, substantially as specified.

An anchor-plate for fence-posts struck from a triangular blank and having upturned lateral angles forming bearingears, and an upturned terminal spur arranged at an upward inclination from the plane of the body portion of the plate,substantially as specified.

4c. The herein described fence -post provided at an intermediate point with a boltopening, a triangular anchor-plate arranged in contact with the post and having an alined bolt-opening, said plate being of triangular construction and having its angles upturned to form lateral bearing-ears and a lower retaining-spur, and a bolt engaging said open ings to secure the anchor plate to the post, substantially as specified.

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