-My invention relates'to,improrcments in fence posts, the primary object of the invention being to provide'af'aierally improved metallic t'ence post:particularly designed and adapted for use in connection with wire fence fabric whereby thelattcr may be readily attarhedto or detached therefrom.

A further object of the invention is to provide a generallyimproved metallic base to support and: maintain the post, proper, in a vertical positionand atthe sametime providinganeans whereby the latter may be readily attached to or detached front-the base to meet the tallying exigencies of actual service and withoutin any way disturbing the supporting base as embedded and supported in'the earth. r a l With the above mentioned and other obisi'sts in the novel construetioin arrangcme ,--and combination of parts, hereinafter described,

illustrated in one ofits embodimentsin thezwcompal'iying drawings, and particularly pointed out 1n the appended claims.
