H. S. YOUNG. CONCRETE FENCE POST. APPLIOATION FILED JUNE 1,1905.
AR UlETTQ,
CONCRETE FENGE-POST.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 30, 1906.
Application filed June 1,1905. Serial No. 263,316.
To aZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, HERRALD S. YOUNG, a citizen of the United States, residing at Beyrout, in the county of Pierce and State of North Dakota, have invented a new and useful Uoncrete Fence-Post, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in concrete fence-posts.
The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of fence-posts, and to provide a simple and comparatively inexpensive concrete fence post having fastening means adapted to enable fence-wires to be rapidly applied to it in constructing fences and removed from it in taking down fences and capable in event of a wire breaking at one side of a post of effectually preventing the wire from slippingand slackening at the opposite side of the post.
With these and other objects in view 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 claims hereto appended, it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details of construction within the scope of the claims may be re sorted to Without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective View of a fence-post constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view. Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of a portion of the post. Fig. 4: is adetail perspective view of a section of the post, illustrating the construction and arrangement of the longitudinal recess and the transverse grooves.
Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.
1 designates a fence-post designed to be constructed of concrete, artificial stone, or other plastic material and provided in its front face with a vertical recess 2, having parallel side walls 3, forming shoulders for receiving and engaging clamping-plates 4:, which hold fence-wires 5 to the post. The fence-post shown in the accompanying drawings is tapered from bottom to top and is square in cross-section; but the post may be of any other preferred form or configuration to secure the desired strength or lightness.
The vertical recess 2 is shallow, and the fencewires 5, which may be composed of twisted wires when desired, extend across the recessed face of the fence-post and are depressed into the recess by the clamping-plates which form abrupt bends 6, whereby the fence- Wires are prevented from slipping longitudinally. Should a fence-wire break at one side of the post, the abrupt bends will prevent the wire from slackening at the opposite side of the post. The fence-post is provided at intervals with transverse grooves 7 extending across and slightly beyond the longitudinal recess and terminating short of the opposite side faces of the post and forming seats for the bent portions of the wire and adapted to prevent the wires from being cut or otherwise injured by the clamping-plates when the said wires are forced into the recess to form the said bends 6.
The clamping-plates are provided with perforations for the reception of bolts 9, which project from the fence-post, being removably arranged in openings 10 thereof. The bolts are preferably of a length less than the thickness of the fence-post to lessen their cost, and they are provided with square heads 11, countersunk in the post and arranged adjacent to the center or at points midway between the front and rear faces of the post. Bolts of any desired length may be employed, and the rear portions of the openings 10 of the fence-post may be filled with cement, but are preferably left open, so that should a bolt break it may be readily removed and replaced by a new one. The threaded ends of the bolts are provided with nuts 12, which are screwed tightly against the clamping-plates.
The fence-post and the fastening means are practically indestructible, and they will enable fence-wires to be readily put up and taken down. The fastening means may be employed for securing Woven wires or other fencing material to the fence-post, and the post and wires may also be employed in the construction of trellises.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to ecure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The combination of a post provided with a recess having opposite walls, a clampingplate fitted between the walls and adapted to force a wire intothe recess to form an abrupt bend for preventing the wire from slipping, and fastening means for adjustably securing the clamping-plate to the post.
2. The combination of a post having a recess and provided With a groove extending across the Walls of the recess and forming a wire-receiving seat, and fastening means having a clamping-plate fitting in the recess and forcing the Wire ihto the recess and the groove, whereby an abrupt bend is formed in the Wire to prevent the latterfrom slipping, said clamping-plate being retained from movement by the recess.
3. The combination of a post provided with a longitudinal recess and having transverse grooves extending across the recess and terminating short of the opposite side faces of the post, clamping-plates fitted between the 15' opposite Walls of the recess and adapted to force wires into the same to form abrupt bends, and fastening means piercing the post and the clamping-plates and adjustably securing the latter to the former.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two Witnesses.
