' Letters Patent `No..y 95,1213, dated September 21, 1869.
IMRROvEMENT 1N" PnNenPosTs.
i The Schedule referred 'to in these Letters Patent and` making part of the same,
To allwltoml tt may concern:` t
Be it known that I, CLARK Losnn, of Perryshurg, in the countyof Gatta-raugus, and State of New York,
have invented anew and improved Fence-Post; and I do hereby declare that the' following is a full and exact description thereofireierence being had` to the accompanying drawing, which represents a perspective view of a section `of fence constructed with my improved posts.
, My improvement relates 4tothat kind offence in which the rails or boards are secured between two upright pieces, usuallywdriven or otherwise secured in the ground. i I am aware that this` kind of fence-post hasheretofore been kmade of two `iron rods of' suitable `length,-
\ having their lower ends secured to a baseor anchor i plate, by drilling or otherwise forming holes and key- `ing or riveting the posts therein, and also of a single rod bent at the centre, so asto form the twojuprights. For 4securing iron posts in the ground, it has been found necessary tofasten them in some way different from tbeordinary wooden post, which is Idriven into the ground, as the small size of the iron rod does not form a bearing-surwe of sufiicient extent to properly t retain it in Va vertical position. The method usually f adopted to secure the post to an anchor or base-plate of, some kind or other, the expense of the drilling when .this base-plate is of stone, and the cost of the metal when made of iron, together' with the labor of keying f or riveting the two together, have made this `kind of post so expensive as to render it impracticable for `use l in an ordinary farm-fence. i
` The object of' my invention is the construction of an i iron fence-post` that can be readily and firmly secured in the ground, without thelusual expense of an anchorplate, and whchwill not much, if any, exceed the cost,
of a wooden' p'ost. l
My invention consists of an iron post, when bent from a single rod so that the' lower and bent portion shall form a triangle, the base of which is of suliioient length `to cause the sides thereof t form suitable braces tostiii'en the uprights, while the baseitself is readily y shown and described.
them, which are passed over the ends of the uprights,
and form ties to secure the latter together.
The lower tie d', which is nearest the ground and most liableto decay,.may be made of iron, by bending the endsot a short piece of rod or wire so as to -form hooks to engage within the uprights.
My improved posts are secured in the ground in the lfollowing manner:
Thebase bis placed on the ground on a couple of flat stones, c e, which form a foundation `therefouto prevent the post settling in the ground, `and with anotherland larger stone or stones, f, on top thereoas shown. l .t t t The earth' is then thrown up from each side, by plowing or otherwise,-so as to form a ridge, G, cover-V ing the bottom or triangular portion?) c of the post, which properly secures the post in place. l
The panelsV H H may consist of rails, boards, or
'seantling, and arearranged between the uprights A in the ordinary manner of constructing this kind of tence..
or any other of the ordinary means employed.
What I claim as my invention, is f The posts can'be protected from rust by paint, tar,
Aniron fence-post, consisting of the uprights'A A,
braces c c, and connecting base-rod b,`bent`from a singie rod and4 secured in the ground, substantially as l CLARK LOSEE. Witnesses:
.M. M. Moonv,
JAMES KELLY.
