Application lecl March 16. 1907. -Serial No. 362,772.
Patented Jan. 7, 1908.
To all whom it may conce/Mt:
Be it known that l, CoNnAnH. Tirion- MAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at La Fayette, in the county of Tippecanoe and State of indiana, have invented certain Anew and useful improvements in Corner- Posts and Braces for Fences, of which the following isxa speciiication.
My invention relates to improvements in fences, particularly corner-posts and braces therefor.
Its objects are,` among other things, to
rovide for effectively anchoring the post or its base; to substantially'stay or brace the fence; to avoid lateral stress or strain of the longitudinal fence wires upon the cornerposts; and to carry out these objects in a simple, effective and expeditious' manner.
Said invention consists of the structural features or instrumentalities substantially as hereinafter fully disclosed and specifically pointed out by the claims.
In the accompanying drawing illustrating the preferred embodiment of my invention Figure 1 is a side elevation thereof. Fig. 2 is an end elevation oi' the same. Fig. 3 1s a plan view of the invention. tical longitudinall section thereo ln the disclosure of, my invention, .l employ` a cornenpost generally designated by the refereiice-character l, preferably iii two metal platos or members 2, 3, of rightangled cross-section with one ofthe arms of each arranged ,parallel tothe other, and accordingly having the remaining arms r'thereof aiming each other, with a vertical longitudinal spaccfprovided between them for the passing of the fence-wires therethrough as shown. l:Bald post-forming plates f2, 3,- are suitably bolted or riveted together at short .intervals throughout their lengths, as at 4, and have their lower ends suitably connected or embedded in anchoring means or blocks 5, ti, 7 which are, as shown, sunk or buried in the earth some distance below l the surface, said plates being made of the requisite length for their insertion the required depth into the ground and yet extending the desired distance above the latter for obvious reasons. The post thus Fig. 4 is a ver-` constructed, it will be noted, is adapted to allow the fence-wires, fastened thereto, to be passed centrally between lits .members and thus avoid lateral strain or stress as would be the case if said fence-wires were passed laterally thereof in forming the fence.
S is a diagonal brace also composed of' two plates or members 9, 10, preferably rightangled in cross-section, with their u per ends bolted or secured preferably by a bo t or rivet 4, to the post, a short distance from its up per end. Said brace extends down into, and
is buried some distance under ground, about' in the same horizontal line with the foot of the corner-post, it also being embedded or. 65A
connected to a suitably contrived anchoring means, preferably of crossedieces 11 of' suitable material, standing at di erent angles to the brace, as also to a perpendicular line passing through the ound, for aiding the anchoring thereof andgr the holding action of said brace. It will be noted that both the corner-post 1 and the brace 8 are extended downward and buried underground to an extent about e ual to their portions extendin above groun thus provid-ing for increase stability and capability of resistance.
A second oppositely inclined brace or tie 12 having its two members of like nmetal plates as aforesaid, has the lower ends of its members bolted or riveted to the members of the corner-post, at a ,point well below the ground-surface as disclosed. Said tie-brace has the upper ends of its members secured to the brace 8 close to, and just below the surface, thus providing for resisting eiidwise thrust or strain exerted in either direction upon the fence-wires or panels as well as any lateralpressure whichmay be brought to bear upon the corner-post or fence, thus promoting increased strength, durability and effectiveness.
A device as described, comprising an' end post of nearly twice the usual length, with about half its length arranged below the surface, the remaining half thereof being arranged above the surface, a diagonal brace having its upper end secured tosaidend ost near its corresponding end, with about ha f its emma anchored undef bund, e, stake, sefi to the foot of said mace, standing in an seiy inclined position to said-brace to i itionally enchor the aforesaid brace, 'and Lie brace between said post and tiie firstn wired to breve and arranged in a, diagoy o pesite direction to that of said iii-streerre te brace, said tie-brace being anciwed in place in also being buried beio'w the surface of the grouini. le In testimony whereof I ziii; my Signaue, in presence of twowitnesses.
