FENCE-POST.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept; 1-7, 1907.
mummified November 20, 1906. Bdrill No. 344,277.
certain new and useful Improvements in Fence-Posts;
and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will en- .able others skilled in'the art to which it appertainsto make and use the same.
post of malleable or gray iron or other suitable metal for the support of a plain or barbed wire fence,'.the post being constructed so as to sit firmly in the ground and beistiff and steady to a degree that fewer posts of the structural character of thisinvention may be needed than posts as commonly formed.
The'nature of the invention is readilyascertained from the device portrayed in the annexed drawings,-
forming'a part of this specification, in view of which the improvements will first be described with respect to their construction and mode of use, and then be pointed out in the subjoined I 0f the drawings Figure l is a *front elevation of the improved post complete; Fig. 2 is a rear elevation. Fig. 3 is a side elevation. v Fig. 4 is a transverse section.
Fig; 5 isa view of a portion'of the edge of the post showing the manner of fstapling .the fence thereto.
Similar numerals of reference designate similar parts or features, as the case may be, whereverthcy occur.
line to the top and its edges '13 are thinned down to In the drawings 10' designates the post which may be composed of gray or malleable iron or otherlsuitable metal, and which, from the base to the top may, for ex ample, be eight feet in length; and, suppohing three feet to extend into the ground, .it' be five feet above the surface of the latter. w
The body of the post'tapers on sides from the ground some extent and in the margin oFthe edges there are lines of perforations 14 whichextend from thetop to the bottom part of the post on each side, said perforations being made for the reception of "staples 15 passed at theirends through the perforations 14 andttheir ends clenched on the inner side to hold the line wires 16,
closely secured to the front face of the post which is flat so as to have the fence extend therealong without interruption. The post described has an outwardly projecting rib 17 which extends centrally from the'back of the post and from top to bottom thereof. The outer margin 18 of the said rib 17 is also provided with perforations 14 so that the end of a fence extending'at right anglestoa 'ience secured to the face-of a post may be attached to It is the object of this invention to provide a'fence' the margin of the said rib. A slot or notch, 19, is made in the post near the top for use in fastening an extract dinary strong ltruss wire to the post in case an unusually high fence is secured to the posts, and in view of this contingency the perforations 14 in the margins of the sides and edge of the rib are made through the-post from top to bottom, in order that the post when set in the ground to an extent'less than three feet may be deed to have a fence of greater height than the five feet secured to the said post in the manner explained.
Under the construction specified, a highly serviceable and durable post is secured, and one that while simple in construction isadapted to meet substantially all exigencies in the construction of a wire fence. What is claimed is i v A fence-post composed of metal provided with anchoring means at its base, and having a flat front face with thinned edges, and perforations at short intervals through the margins of the said thinned edges, said perforations extending from the top to the bottom of the post, and the latter being furthermore provided on its back withe rib extending back at a right angle to the plane of the face of the 'post, saldrlbbelng thinned or reduced at its outer edge and perforations formed at short intervals through the said thinned edge whereby a line of fence may be secured to the face of the post and extend in the plane of the same and the end. or another line of fence may be connected to the riband extend at a right angle to the first-mentioned line or fence.
In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, in presence or two witnesses.
EDWARD WILLIAM xnnnnn.
