EVAN B. AXWELL, OF PINQKNEYVIIJLE, ILLINOIS.
FENCE CONSTRUCTION.
Specification of Letters Patent.
i'atented Jan. 7, 1908.
Application filed February 21. 19074 Serial No. 358.626.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EVAN B. Maxwnm, a citizen of the Ilnited States, residing at Pinckneyville, in the county of Perry and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fence (onstruction; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to fence construction and my object is to construct the fence in sections so that the same may be manufactured and afterwards placed in position in the field.
A further object is to provide means for forming a base for the several sections and a still further object is to provide means for securing the several sections together and bracing the same.
Other objects and advantages will be hereinafter referred to and more particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings which are made a part of this application, Figure 1 is a perspective view of two sections of my improved fence construction as applied to use. line 22, Fig. 1,. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective View of one of the posts and a slightly modified form of supporting base therefor, and Fig. 4 is a sectional view of the post showing the same secured to the base.
In constructing my improved form of fence sections or panels I employ end posts 1 and a central post 2, said posts consisting of sections of boards 3 and t, which are placed parallel with each other and spaced apart by placing therebetween, spacing strips 5. The posts 1 and 2 are spaced apart and connected together by means of bars 6 and 7 the bar 6 being adjacent the lower end of the post and between the boards 3 and 4 while the bar 7 is passed between the boards 3 and t at a. point below the upper ends of the post the bar (5 being located a sufficient distance above the lower ends of the posts to form a slot 8 into which is adapted to take a base-plate 9, said plate being of sullicient height to receive the end of the post at its upper edge and have its lower edge entered into the earth.
After the bars have been properly secured Fig. 2 is a sectional view as seen on in place between the sections of the posts I secure thereto strands of wire 10 and in this instance I have employed sections of woven wire, although it will be understood that in place of the wire a plurality of bars may be employed to form the fence. The wires 10 extend only between the bars ti and 7 while to that portion of the post above bar 7 .l secure single strands of wire 11, one or both of which may be provided with barbs as shown in Fig. l of the drawings.
Ily constructing the fence in sections as described it will be seen that the same may be built within a building and at odd times, or when the weather is such as to prohibit outside work, and it will further be seen that if desired, the sections of the fence may be (.tmstructed in the factory and sold in the same manner as woven wire fence is manufactured and sold. It will further be seen that .the sections of the fence may be readily transported or moved when desired and when the same is employed to close a poultry yard the wire on the bottom portion thereof may be more closely woven as shown on one of the sections in Fig. l of the drawings.
In placing the sections in position to form a fence, base-plates E) are pro pcrl'y located to receive the posts 1 and 2, the base-plate at the ends of the section being of sufficient length to receive two of the posts. The end posts of the meeting sections are preferably spaced slightly apart and the upper portions of said posts are attached together by means of a reach bar 12 which is directed through an alining channel 13 formed between the boards 3 and 4t, and said posts are laterally braced by looping a stay wire 14 around the central portion of the reach bar and extending the ends of the stay wire to opposite sides of the line of fence and securing the same to the stakes 15 which are driven into the earth at each side of the line of fence, the space between the end posts admitting the wire to pass freely thercbetwcen. The post 2 is likewise provided with a stay wire 141- which is dirccted around one end of the reach bar 16, the ends of said wire being likewise disposed at each side of the line of fence and scoured to stakes 15 the reach bar 16 being secured to the post 2 by directing the same through a channel 17 formed between the boards 3 and 4. B .n'ovidim the sta wires and securing them to the fence as described it will be seen that the sections of the fence will be held rigid against lateral movement. As best shown in Figs. 3 and 4 of the drawings, the upper edges of the base-plates 9, employed at the meeting ends of the sections have oppositely disposed notches 19 therein with which are adapted to engage tapered tongues said tongues being formed on blocks 20 which blocks are secured between the boards 3 and 4, below the bar 6 so that the same will engage the notches 19 when the sections of the fence are rested upon the base-plate and it will be seen that when the tongues are properly placed into engagement with the notches in the upper edge of the base-plate the posts will be securely held against longitudinal movement, and the sections of the fence prevented from separating or pulling away from each other. When constructing the sections of the fence, if desired, the ends of the wires may he directed around one edge of the spacing strips and drawn taut after which the same may be placed betweenthe boards 3 and 4 and secured thereto in any preferred manner.
It will now be seen that I have provided a very cheap and durable form of fence and one that can be built at odd times and at any convenient place, and afterwards placed in position around the field, and it will further be seen that by forming the posts as shown that the fence may be built very cheaply and at the same time embodying durability and strength.
What I claim is 1. A fence composed of sections, each comprising a pair of end posts, said posts being formed of sections of boards paralleling each other, bars connecting each pair of end posts the lower ends of said posts having slots therein and channels adjacent the upper end thereof, a base plate for said' posts, oppositely disposed notches on the upper edge of said base plates, tapered tongues in-the slots at the lower ends of the posts adapted to engage the notches and hold the sections against longitudinal movement, a reach bar adapted to enter the channels in adjacent end posts, stay wires looped around said reach bar, and stakes anchored at a distance from said end posts to which the free ends of said stay wires are secured.
2. A fence of the class described, comprising a pair of abutting posts formed of paral-' leling boards, a base plate for the lower ends of said posts, said posts having slots in their lower ends to engage the upper edge of the base plate, oppositely disposed notches on the upper edge of said base plate, and a tapered tongue for each post adapted to engage said notches, said tongues being located in the slots at the lower ends of the posts.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
EVAN B. MAXWELL.
