HERSCHEL A. SOHEBMERHQRN, OF SHJIBBONA GROVE, ILLINOIS.

WIRE-SPLIGER.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, HEnsoHEL A. Somma citizen of the United States, residln at Shabbona Grove, in the countv of Deka b and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in wire-splicers, of which the following is a specification. j

This invention relates to improvements in a tool or utensil to be used for splicing the wires of wire-fences, and it consists in certain peculiarities of the construction, novel arrangement,. and operation of the various parts thereof, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth and specifically claimed.

The principal object of the invention is to provide an implement which is primarily intended for splicing or "mending the broken v. ires of ire-fences in a quicker, cheaper'and more efl'ectivc way than ordinarily, yet may also be used fortightening the slack strands of wires of either barbedwire or woven-sire. fences.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be. disclosed in the subjoined description and explanation. i v

In order to enable others skilled in the art to which my invention pertains, to make and use the'same,I will now proceed to describe it, referring to the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a view in elevation of a wire-splicer embodying one form of the invention, showing the parts thereof by 0011- tinuous lines in the positions they will ori-upy when being used as a splicer, as well as a tightener, and by dotted lines the posi tions to which the members of the split shaft may be placed when the tightening jaws are disengaged from the wire; Fig. 2 is a plan view of a broken wire showing the tool and splice wire in their initial positions in the operation of splicing a broken wire; Fig. 3 is a similar view of like parts, showing the tool after it has been turned so as to wind up the splice-wire thereon; Fig. 4 is a like view of a part of the tool as employed in fastening the splice-wire to the main -wire; Fig. 5 is a cross sectional view taken on line 5 5 ofFig. 1 looking in the direction indicated by the arrows; and Fig. 6 is a view in elevation of a modified form of the splicer.

Like numerals of reference, refer to corresponding parts throughout the different views of the drawing Specification of Letters Patent. Application filed December 18, 1903. Serial No. 468,093.

The reference numeral 10 designates the Patented June 1 1909.

split shaft of the tool which is shownin Figs. 1 to 5, inclusive, as consisting of two'mempivotally secured together near one of their ends by means of a bolt or rivet-pin 12, so that .they may be folded together as shown by full lines in said views, thus form ing a split-shaft substantially rectangular in cross-section throughout the major part of its length.- Eaehof the members 1] is provided at one of its ends, which I will term its front end, with a jaw 13 spiral y in shape like the bit of an auger, and each of said jaws is provided on its inner portion with a rounded projection 14 which, when the members 11 are closed together, will impinge against one another and provide an opening 15 between said projections and the front surfaces of the jaws 13 for the reception of a wire which it may be desired to tighten, which may be done by turning the tool in either direction,

in which operation it is apparent that the wire will be bcntIaround both of the projections 14, thus taking up the slack of the wire, when by separating the members 11 the projections 14 may be removed from the loop or twist formed by the jaws 13 and said projertions' thereon.- Each of the members-1 1 is provided at a short distance rearwardly from the pivot 12 thereof with an opening 16 for the reception of the splice-wire 17, and

said openings will register with one another When the members 11' are folded together as is apparent. At its rear end each of the members 1] is provided with a rectangular tapered portion 17 to fit in a tapered socket 18 formed in one. end of a crank-handle 19 which is used for turning the tool either in the operation of splicing or in the operation of tightening the slack wire.

As is clearly shown in the different views of the drawings the split-shaft 10 isenlarged from a point as at'20 slightly rearward of the openings 16 therein toward its front end, thereby affording greater strength at the points reqniring the same. From a point a slight distance rearwardly of the openings 16 members are formed substantially rectangular in cross-section and taper slightly toward their rear ends, as is clearly shown. This feature of forming the shaft 10 substantially rectangular in cross-section so that the main dportion of the splicing wire may be woun on said part of the shaft 1s very important, as I have found by practice and use that when a cylindrical shaft is employed for in the members 11 of the split-shaft said winding the spliein wire on the same the said wire will-recoi whereas by usin the vrectangular shaped shaft the recoil o the quired unless the shaft is composed of two separable members. In this modification the shaft 10 is provided with an opening 16 near its front end, andfrom a suitable point slightly to the rear of said opening the shaft 10 is formed substantially rectangular in cross-section and ta ered toward its rear end, and, as. in the ot r construction, is provided-with a rectangular tapered portion 17 to fit in the socket of the crank-handle;

The operation of the device in ti htening slack wires has been above ex laine, and is of secondary importance in t is present invention.

In order tmsplice a broken wire (see Figs. 2-to 4 inclusive) a splice-wire 17 is looped through aloo 21 on one end of the main wire 22, and t en both strands of the splicewire '17 are passed through a loop 23 formed on the other section of the main wire 22,-and then through the openings 16 in the shaft of the tool. By placing the crankhandle 19 on the rear end of the tool and turning the same thereby or otherwise, it is apparent that the s lice-Wire 17 will be wound around the su stantially rectangular portion of the shaft of the tool, as is clearly shown in Fig. 3 of the drawing, in whic view it will be observed that in the beginnin of the winding of thesplice-wire but asmall portion thereof will lie on the rounded portion 20 of the shaft while the greater portion gular in cross-section and rovide of the tool. When thus wound the shaft of i the tool may be advanced toward the loop 21 and passed around the splice-wire 17 near the loop 23, which operation will unwind that portion of the wire 17 from the shaft of the tool which has been wound therearound and twist or wind it around the splice-wire between the loops 21 and 23 of the sections of the main wire, as is clearly shown in Fig. 4 of the drawing after which the stem of the tool may be withdrawn from the splicewire, thus leaving the sections of the broken wire firmly united.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters-Patent, is

1; A wire-splieer consisting of a split-shaft comprising two members pivotallv secured together near their ends and each having its major portion formed substantiall rectanwith an opening intermediate of eir ends for the reception of a s licing-wire, and detached means to engage 0th of said members when closed for the purpose of turning the shaft.

2. A wire-splicer consisting of a shaft comprising .two members pivotally secured together near their ends and each having its major part formed substantially rectan ular in cross-section and each providedwit 1 an opening intermediate of its ends to register with one another and for the reception of a splicing-wire, and a crank-handle havin a socket in one of its ends to engage one end of the shaft.
