1,517,119 HI. LUHRING FENCEPOST Filed May 24. 1921 Patented Nov. 25, i924.
HENRY LUHRING, OF LAKEVIEW, SOUTH DAKOTA.
Application filed May 24, 1921. Serial No. 472,087.
To all whom it may concem:
Be it known that HENRY LUHRING, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Lakeview, in the county of Todd and State of South Dakota, has invented new and useful Improvements in Fenceposts, of which the following is a specification.
The purpose of the invention is to provide a simple, effective and stable metallic post designed particularly for use in connec tion with wire fences made preferably of wire strands; to provide means in conjunction with the post for'the ready and effective attachment of the strands to the post; and to provide means whereby when the post is driven into the ground there will be an effective resistance against any turning movement.
The invention is illustrated and described in a specific embodiment to which, however, it is not to be restricted. ,gThe right is reserved to make such changes or altgrations as the actual reduction to practice may suggest, in so far as such changes or alterations are compatible in spirit with the annexed claims.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention.
Figure 2 is a side elevational view.
Figure 3 is a section taken on the plane of the line 33 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a detail elevational view illustrating the 'means by which turning movement of the post is resisted.
Figure 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Figure 2.
The post is made preferably of metal and is )(-shaped in cross section to provide the longitudinally extending lateral flanges 1 which at their lower ends are beveled inthe direction of their length as indicated at 2 and also beveled on opposite sides of their slanting edges. The lower edges of the flanges therefore converge and provide a terminal point 3 which makes for the ready entrance of the post into the ground by driving.
The post is preferably set with two of its flanges having their edges substantially in the plane of the fence which the post is to support and these two flanges are provided with eyes or holes 4 for the reception of tie wires 5 by means of which the wire strands 6 of which the fence is composed are held in place, the tie wires being inserted through the holes and coiled around the strands 6 as indicated clearly in Figures 1 and 3 of the drawings.
Blocks 7 are set between adjacent flanges on opposite sides of the post and may be socured to the flanges in any appropriate manner, preferably by welding or brazing and the post is slotted transversely as well as the block 7 for the reception of a transverse plate 8 the end edges of which are beveled downwardly as at 9 and are beveled on both side faces to provide cutting edges to permit the plate entering the ground. The plate serves as a medium to prevent turning movement of the post by torsional strains that are sometimes imposed upon such posts. The plate 9 is held in place preferably by friction but may if desired be permanently secured as by welding or rivets. The advantage of having it held frictionally is that it permits of the removal of the plate when the posts are being transported and in this way individual posts do not require as much room as if the plate is permanently attached.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new and useful is A fence post comprising an elongated body which is X-shaped in transverse section to provide laterally extending flanges, sundry of the flanges being provided with openings for the reception of tie wire, and a block having a wedge-shaped head applied to the sides of adjacent flanges of the body, said block having a medially disposed plate portion which projects beyond the wedgeture.
