UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

JOHN H. LEE, MOUNTAIN GROVE, MISSOURI, ASSIGNOR ONE FOURTH TO JOHN W. KEY, OF MOUNTAIN GROVE, MISSOURI.

WlRE-STRETCHER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 13, 1906,

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN H. LEE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mountain Grove, in the county of Wright and State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Wire-Stretcher, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to wirestretchers.

The object of the invention is to improve the construction of such devices; furthermore, to increase their efficiency in operation.

With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings, and p articularlypointed out in the appended claim, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scope of the claim Without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of adevice embodying the features of the present invention, parts being broken away to disclose partswhich are otherwisehidden. Fig. 2 is an inverted plan view of the device. Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view of the device on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of the device. Fig. 5 is a perspective view illustrating the employment of the present tool as a wirestretcher.

Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts in all of the figures of the drawings.

The present device includes a central body portion 1, pierced by an eye 2 for the reception of a conventional form of handle 3. The head 4 is integral with the body, and the claw 5 is integral with the other end of the body and is disposed in a general direction at right angles to the body of the head and in substantial parallelism with the handle. The outer side of the claw is of course conveXed. The body of the device is provided with a lateral enlargement 6, integral with the eye and located between the latter and the claw, the adjacent faces 7 and 8 of the enlargement 6 and the claw 5 being in substantial parallelism for the reception of a nut therebetween,

whereby the claw and the enlargement 6 constitute wrench-jaws The exposed face of the wrench-jaw 6 is provided with a longitudinal bifurcation 9, which intersects the rear end of the jaw and tapers forwardly therefrom, so as to form a secondary claw in alinement with the main claw 5. Upon each of the members of the secondary claw there is a hooked prong 12, the'extremity of which is directed toward the handle and is designed for use in stretching'fence-wires, as shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings, wherein has been shown an ordinary fence-post 13 and a fence-wire 14, which may be barbed or smooth, as desired. To

stretch the wire, the main claw of the device is placed against the post and the wire is received between the members of the main claw and then wrapped around one of the prongs 12, the handle being held in one hand and the free portion of the wire held in the other ,hand, whereupon the device is rocked upon its head bearing against the post as a fulcrum, and the wire will thereby be stretched to the desired degree and may then be secured to the post against which the device is engaged. The useof the supplemental claw is illustrated'in Fig. 1, wherein a nail has been illustrated by dotted lines as engaged by the claws 5 and 9, so as to be held upon the device in a position to be stuck into a piece of wood preparatory to driving the nail home by striking the same with the head of the tool in'the usual manner. Moreover, in drawing the nail it may be started by the main claw 5 and then engaged with the supplemental claw 9, so as to obtain a new hold or purchase thereon, whereby the nail may be entirely withdrawn where it could not be entirely withdrawn by the use of the claw 5 alone.

In one of the outer faces of the jaw 6 there is formed a polygonal socket 10, which intersects the rear edge of the jaw and forms a wrench seat or socket for the reception of a nut of smaller size than can be engaged between the jaw 6 and the claw 5, and another wrench-seat 1 1 of a different size is formed in the opposite face of the jaw.

Having thus described the invention, What is claimed isj A tool of the class described comprising a handle, a transverse head upon the handle with one end terminating in a claw, a supplemental .claw located between the main claw and the handle, and hooked prongs upon the I extremities of the members of the supplemy own I have hereto aflixed my signature mental claw with their ends directed toward 1 in the presence-of two witnesses.
