Patented Nov. 30, 1915. 2 SHEETS-SHEET 2. I

which Application filed January 1%,

To 1255 whom et'mag concern:

Be it known that I. Eli-ism s1. BERRY, e

citizen of the United Stet residing?" 7 1 'es City in the county of State of htlissouri, have invented new and useful l'rnprovemente in Concrete-Molds, of

the following. a specification.

The invention relates to molds for con crete construction.

The primary object of the invention is he provision of mold wherein the wells of 21. building, silo or the like! can be erected in a novel manner to assure strength and dureloility thereto and also to enable theconvenient and quick building thereof from concrete or cementitious material.

' construction, reliable and efficient in operw Another object of vision of e mold wherein the sections thereof can be readily positioned for the formation of the Walls of the building and also which will hold the metal latliing in permanent position for the application of plaster to give afinish to the facing of the inner or outer Well.-

A further object of the invention is the provisionof a mold wherein the desired air space between the inner and outer Walls cu belied and the thickness of such wells varied esthe occasion may require.

A. stillfurther object of the invention the provision of a mold wherein the mold sections can be readily. and easily assembled and disassembled. i,

A still further object of the irmention is the provision of a mold wherein the reinforcing burs can be held for the proper placing of the some in the Wall when being formed with the mold.

A still further object of the invention is the .provision ofa mold by which Walls of different diameters be con-- structed by the use of greater 'or smaller number of the plate sections.

It. stillzfurther objector the invention is the provision of a mold which is simple in tion, and inexpensive in manufacture.

Withthese and other objects in. view. the invenoion consists in the construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the cloinis hereunto appended.

In; the drawings :Figure 1 is fragmen tar-y horizontal sectional view through a Wall showing the mold in position. for erect- Specifieetion of Letters Patent Jackson and the invention is the prom sea seen seer ll cw ee.

Fig. :1 'pers vcc'sive view the mold. Fig. s a vertical longitudinal sectional view therethrough. Fig. 6 is e fragmentary plan view looking toward the outer "face of a wall when the molds are in stacked position. Fig. is a sectional view on the line ?--7 of Fig. 6;

Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawings.

Referring to the dr designates'the outer well of "the building -which. is made from. concrete end constructed by the use of the mold hereinafter if 17; described. i

The mold comprises 2. pair of spaced rods 10 having threaded ends ll and plate secswings detail, A

tions 12 and lfifi which ure'provided With.

holes M for receiving the rods 19. While adjustebly engaged on the. ends ill. of the rods 10 are inner and enter lock nuts 15 which are adapted to Work wusliers'lfi esi-- tlonecl between the 3.1.11 15 and the feces sdgacent' thereto of the sections l2 for fastening the some on the is it being 1111- derstood of course th rods can. he made of any desirable length, tl'ierehy enabling the thickness of the Walls of the building to he cried. The rods 10 are bent to form alining eyes 1'? through. which passed reinforcing rod 18 which is held seated in the and is designed to be embedded in the outer Well A for strengthening the some. The rods 16 for u portion oft their length are flattened at end at which. points are pro vided openings in which detaohshly engaged cotter pins 21. to hold the; plate section 13 in proper position when building the well A, in a manner presently described.

ln'erecting the well ill one plate section 12 is secured at the endsiot' the rods 10 and securely fastened thereto by the nuts 15 ht opposite sides of the. same. Also the pl to section 13 is positioned on the rods 10 to engage against the cotter pins 521. After the adjustment of the plate sections on the rods '10 the same are brought to rest upon a foundation, and thereafter the concrete is poured While Wet between the plate sections Hall the rods 11) will he posi i ncd trans ly therethrongh, it being understood 1, :se "hat the reinli'orcing rod 18 is en gaged in the eyes 17 so as to become embeddcd in the concrete when poured between. the plate sections. .l.he mold now remains in such position until the concrete becomes hardened, and thereafter the plates 12 and, 13 are removed from the rods which are permanently held. in the section of the n all thus formed.

Should ithe desired to erect an inner "Wall and an air space between itand the outer Wall A, the cotter pins 21 are ad justed in the rods 10, and thereafter the metal. lathing- E is engaged on the latter against the said pins, and finallv one ol the nlates is toned on the ends of the rods by the nuts 15, and the concrete or plastic .z'naterial is poured between the metal lathing and the plate for the formation of the inner Wall (3, as shown in :2 of tha drawing Thus it will he seen that an air space E) is provide-d between the \VfillS A l. and C. It is of course to he understood that the plate sections 12 and 13 are of the required length for the fori'i'iatio'n of the sections of the wall during repeated. ope ations in the use of the mold. Now, should it he desired to construct a plastic surface to the metal lathing l?) as shown in Fig: 3 of the drawings, the rods 10, which. are permanently nioiz ted in the Wall A, have lteQtl over their ends projected beyond the inner faces of the said Wall A cone members which are filled with. cement or other like material as at :23, and thereafter the metal lathing fi l is hrng upon the ends of the re 9 10, the cone members being designed to serve as spacing elements for the metal lathing to hold the same a disencc from the wall it. The metal, lathing 24 is held on the rods by means oi the nuts 15, which are threaded thereon as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawing After the lathing We is properly positioned, the plastic material I E is applied thereto.

To enable the stacking" of several. of the inolds there is provided on the plate sections 12 and contiguous to their lower edges cleats which permit the fastening of the plate section's together when one mold is arnnged above the other for the formation of the Wall of a building.

From the foregoing it is thought that the construction and manner of use of the mold will be clearly understood, and therefore a more extended "explanation has omitted.

What is claimed is1- l. A mold comprising a plurality of spaced rods, eyes formed in the rods adja cent one end thereof, a reinforcing bar passml through said eyes, moldin sections detachably and adj ustably mounted upon the ends of said rods, each of said rods having a. flattened intermediate portion dis posed at a r' flit angle to the eye thereof and provided w oh openings, and pins engaged in. said openings for spacing intermediate molding sections relative to each other.

A mold comprising a plurality of space, rods, hollow cone-sheped members encircling said rod and spaced therefrom, and adapt d to hold a cementitious filling, said cones being closed at one end by said support, molding sections mounted on the ends of said rods, a metal lathing mounted upon the .tree ends of said rods and closing the opposite ends of said cones, said cones spacing the lathing relative to the said support, and means for securing the lathing upon said rod.

its a new article of: manufacture, a tie rod adapted to space mold plates stormed to provide an eye adjacent one end thereof and a flattened intermediate portion disposed at a right angle .With relation to said eye and provided with o' 'penin'gs, pins reniovahly po sitioned in said openings, said rod having th eaded terminals, and nuts adjnstably associated therewith In. testimony whereof I allix my signature in. presence of two Witnesses.
