Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 7, 1905.
Applicatioufiled August 10, 1905. Serial No. 273,545.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN M. (J. RnNTFRo, a citizen of the United States, residing at Middletown, in the county of Montgomery and State of Missouri, have invented new and use ful Improvements in Fence-Posts, of which the following is a specification.
Myinventionisa fence-post, and has for its object to produce a cheap, strong, and durable post; and to this end the invention consists in certain novel features of construction hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation, and Fig. 2 an end elevation,
of the post in position.
Referring specifically to the drawings, 5 denotes the post, which rises from a cross-bar 6, forminga base, said bar resting upon the surface of the ground when the post is set up. On the bottom of the base-bar is a block 7, which is embedded in the ground.
At 8 is indicated an anchor, which for convenience sake may be a rock, as shown in the drawings. The anchor is secured to the post by wires, which are looped, as at 9, and in which loop the anchor is placed, the Wires being twisted, as at 10, to draw the loop tightly around the rock. The wires extend to the ends of the base-bar and from there to the post, being made fast by staples 11 or other suitable means. Above the base the wires are twisted to form loops 12 to receive a suitable tool for twisting the wires and drawing them taut.
A fence post constructed as herein described is strong and durable and can be rapidly set up, and by reason of its simplicity of construction it can be cheaply produced.
Having thus described my invention, what is claimed as new, and desired to be secured by Letters Patent, is-
In a fence-post, the combination of a crossbar resting upon the surface of the ground, a post rising from said bar, a block on the bottom of the bar and embedded in the ground, an anchor embedded in the ground, and wires formed with a loop in which the anchor is placed, said wires being twisted to draw the loop tightly around the anchor, and said wires also being extended to and over the ends of the aforesaid cross-bar and thence to the post, and made fast thereto.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
JOHN M. o. RENTFRO.
