UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
HENRY W. UNDERWOOD, OF AURORA, ILLINOIS.
CEMENT OR CONCRETE FENCE-POST.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY WV. UNDER- wooo, a citizen of the United States, residing at Aurora, county of Kane, and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cement or Concrete Fence-Posts, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in cement or concrete fence posts and in improved braces for the same, and the object of my invention is to provide an improved fence post and brace of the character mentioned which shall be strong and durable, comparatively simple of construction and of low cost to manufacture.
My invention will be more readily understood by reference to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the post, a portion of the same being broken away to illustrate the brace members, Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the post strengthening frame, Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the strengthening frame of the brace, and Fig. 4 is a detail view of the connection between the post and the brace illustrated upon an enlarged scale.
Referring now to the drawings, 1 indicates the fence post which is octagonal in cross section and preferably tapers from bottom to top. The post is formed of cement or concrete and is provided with a strengthening frame which is molded therein. The frame comprises top, bottom and center octagonal wire members 3, 4, and 5 respectively which are graduated in size to conform to the cross sectional size of the post at the respective points where they are embedded, and in vertical wire members or rods 6. The members 6 are secured to the members 3 and 4; by having their ends looped about the same as at 7 the member 6 being arranged within the members 3 and 4 and the loop 7 turned over upon the outer face thereof. The member 5 is secured to the members 6 by being looped about said members as at 8, the member 5 being arranged upon or within the member 6 as shown clearly in Figs. 1 and 2. The member 5 intermediate the loops 8 is bent outwardly as at 9 until it reaches substantially the face or surface of the post and the members 3 and 4 are bent outwardly intermediate the loops 7 as at 10 in substantially the same Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed March 8, 1909.
Patented Apr. 12, 1910.
Serial No. 482,110.
manner. The corner post near its upper end and the adjacent post near the ground level are provided with transversely extending eye-bolts 15 for a purpose hereinafter described.
16 indicates the brace member. This is also formed of cement or concrete and is preferably octagonal in cross section and tapers from the center toward each end. The brace is provided with a strengthening frame 17 which consists of the longitudinal members 18, the end members 19 and the center member 20, which are secured together in identically the same manner as the members 3, 4, 5, and 6 of the post frame with the exception that the end members 19 are arranged obliquely in order that the ends of the brace may fit snugly against the posts as shown in Fig. 4. Each end of the brace is provided with a hook 21 having a shank or stem 22 embedded in the concrete or cement. The end of the shank is bent as at 23 to lock the hook member in position. To further strengthen the hook member and to hold the same in position while the brace is being molded tie members 24: are provided which secure the member or its shank 22 to the members 18 and 19 as shown in Fig. 3. The hooks 21 are adapted to engage the eye bolts 15 in the fence post and by tightening said bolts the brace is drawn and secured firmly in position.
Having described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. An octagonal upwardly tapering fence post and a brace therefor formed of a plastic material, wire strengthening frames centrally positioned, and longitudinally extending within said post and said brace, each of said frames consisting of a plurality of upright wire members secured at their extremities and central portions to octagonally formed wire members, said upright wire members being secured at their extremities to said octagonally formed wire members by being outwardly looped around the same, the centrally positioned octagonal wire members being secured to said upright wire members by being looped around each of the same, said post being provided with a series of diagonal horizontally extending perforations arranged in pairs therein, the extremities of said brace being diagonally extending, hooked bars secured in either extremity of said brace, an eye-bolt secured in said post,
the hook portion of said hooked bar being adapted to engage the eye-bolt, substantially as described.
2. A fence post and a brace therefor formed of a plastic material, an eye-bolt embedded in said post, a Wire strengthening frame centrally positioned and longitudinally extending Within said brace, said frame consisting of a plurality of longitudi-, nal Wire members secured at their extremities and central portions to polygon-ally formed Wire members and a hook member projecting from the end of said brace adapted to engage an eye in said eye-bolt, a, shank on said hook embedded in said plastic 5 material and bonds tying said shank to said longitudinally extending members, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of 29 two subscribing Witnesses.
HENRY W. UNDERWOOD.
