INI/ENTOR Ofomqf Jage 2-5 l absolutely rigid, in thatit holds the mold to reinforcements aswell as keeping the same forms for additional lifts of construction,
and serves any purpose; whatsoever\` for which-other forms of scaffolding .are' re quired. The rod 5 is readily replaced in the coupling device' l after the mold o r form is removed fromthe completed work, and by beams or otherforms of construction, and
upon these timbers a platform as shown is 15' constructed.. The molds for a higher lift "can be. placed upon this platform, and are also bolted to' the 'surfaceof the completedl ywork-'by means of rod 5 andcoupling 1, kthus -insuring a smoothjjoint between the completed'work and the new work toy be done,
,and alsoaddingto the strengthof v the-mold or form.
` It )will be readily appreciated that when -the'molds or'forms are .tied in'accordance with my inventiona tie is produced which is its required ldimensions' and lines; lthe asseinblag'e of the parts of the tie may be The 'hole left in the face of the workby the `A speedilyv andeconomically carried out at the ltime ofthejc'nstruction of the molds or forms; the tie rods canl be quickly and easily withdrawn after the material has lacquired suiiieient strength, and be repeatedly used in this I'I1an1ier. "A further advantage is the, saving incost of: labor and material in using the rod-and coupling 4for bolting a scafoled 1 on f theinished work, savingall shoring.
rod can be qekiy and cheaply fined when there is no longer any necessity for its use,
leaving the face of the material in a smooth.
condition, and with a pleasing appearance.
'It will urtherbe noted that the rods serv` ing as supports forany reinforcing material which may be .used `in the construction, causes the reinforcement .to be embedded in itsproper position and the use of nails' and Iclaim:-'
'A coupling adapted to beembedded in a' lplastic wall-.during the erection ofthe same comprisinga .body .provided with a l'ngi tudinal bore threadedat its ends, the inter- `mediate portion of the vperiphery of the body f consistingofa 'continuous lseries ,of :ingularly disposed faces/the'nds'of the body being circular in elevation and of greaterdi-- arneter than the said intermediate portion of the'body, whereby the threaded end'v port-ions ofthe coupling Vare strengthened, the body being providedat the opposite sides of its intermediate portion and between the said .similar fastenings in the molds or forms is A thus avoided. this means timbers arebolted to the vva`lls,`
end portions with radially disposed Wings entend-ing beyond-the diameter of the end said wings being relatively broad` portions, and thin and having their broad sides disposed longitudinally of the body and their' `thi1 sides transversely thereof.
