HENRY MCMASTER, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN.
CEMENT POST.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 744,976, dated November 24, 1903.
Application filed September 23, 1903. Serial No. 174,247. (No model.)
To a/ZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY MCMASTER, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cement Posts, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings. A
This invention relates more specifically t au improvement in cement posts adapted for use as fence-posts, bitching-posts, and the like; and the invention has for its particular object to adapt the post to all styles and makes of fences, such as wire fences, wooden board fences, fences with detachable panels, &c.
To this end myinvention consists ina particular and novel construction whereby the desired object is obtained in a simple and inexpensive manuel-,which permits any farmer or person of ordinary skill to manufacture the same without the use of any special tools and from material which is easily procurable,all as more fully hereinafter described, and shown in the accompanying drawings, inwhich- Figure l is an elevation of a fencepost embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical section thereof; and Fig. 3 is a horizontal cross-section substantially on line a: Figs. l and 2.
As shown in the drawings, A represents the cement body of the post, which may be of any desired form and dimensions. B is a piece of band-iron, and C is a stick of wood, preferably cut out of a piece of board.
Both the band-iron and the wood are embedded in the upper portion of the body of the post in such manner that on those portions of the cement body to which the fence or top wires, boards, dac., must be fastened the baud-iron is exposed on the face of the post, while the wooden stick forms a backing for these exposed portions.
For buildinga wire or board fence the bandiron would have to be exposed for the whole height of the fence upon the face of the post, as shown in Fig. l, and this entire portion a. should -be backed by the block of wood, to which the band-iron may be secured by a few nails or otherwise to hold it in position thereon. Similarly, a portion ZJ of the band-iron may be exposed at the top of the post, the
of greater width than the thickness of the block of Wood, so that projecting shoulders d are formed where the strip of wood lies against the band-iron.
A cement post of this construction is of great strength, especially in the direction in which strength is needed, it costs but little more than the cost of the cement, and its construction is within the capacity of any person of ordinary skill. Aside from these advantages my cement post oers facility for the construction of fences of any style or make necessitating the use of nails, staples, screws, or other modes -of fastening, since nails'or staples may be readily driven anywhere through the exposed portions of the bandiron into the wood, or, if necessary, holes may be punched through the band-iron for the purpose, (before the post is molded,) and it will readily be seen that a much stronger fastening is obtained than by the use of wood alone, while at the same time the band-iron protects the Wood vand the 'cement post from injury through various causes well understood by those having experience with the various styles of cement fence-posts in present use.
An additional advantage is that my fencepost presents a ready means for fastening a fence-wire, barbed wire, or fence-board on top of the post itself or adapting it for a convenient bitching-post by fastening a ring with a staple in the top thereof.
It is obvious that instead of band-iron strips of tin, galvanized iron, or other equivalent material may be used, and this and other obvious modifications are included within the scope of my patent. Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim is-n 1. A post composed of a body portion of cement, a strip of sheet metal embedded therein and having a portion or portions thereof exposed on the surface of the post and another TOO portion singularly disposed Within said body and a block of Wood disposed within the body portion and forminga backing for the exposed portions of the metal'strip.
2. A cement post having a strip or band of metal embedded therein in the longitudinal direction thereof, parts or portions of said strip being exposed upon the face of the posts and a strip of Wood Within the post and forming a backing for the exposed portion of said strip.
3. A fence-post composed of a body portion of cement, a strip of sheet rnetni embedded therein and having portions thereof on one side and on top of the post exposed ush with the surface thereof and a block 0E wood em- HENRY MOMASTER.
