UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
JOSEPH CARLIN, OF CUMMINSVILLE, OHIO.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 26,832, dated January 1T, 1860.
ifo all whom t may concern;
Beit known that I, JOSEPH CARLIN, of Cumminsville, Hamilton county, Ohio, have invented-a certain new and useful Improvement in Horseshoes; and I hereby declare the fo1.
lowing to be a full, clear, and exact description of the saine, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making part of this speciication.A
My invention relates to the class of horseshoes whose toes and `calks are adapted to be easily attached to or detached from the main portion orbase; and it consists in a more secure and compact construction of parts than are exhibited in, previous contrivances. In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents under side of base with one calk inserted, the toe and other calk being detached. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of the shoe. Fig. 3 is a front view. Fig. 4 is an outerview of a toe. Fig. 5 is an inner view of the s ame. Horseshoes with detachable calks and toes have hitherto been defective, owing to liability to dislodgment by the violence incident to their use. In order to provide against such casualties, I form in the contiguous sides of the base A and the toe B and calks C, respectand the keys of wrought-iron.l Portable calks and toe may' be thus secured without liability of dislodgment, and when worn or broken, `or to be replaced by sharpened toe and calks for winter use, can be taken out by removing the keys.
I claim as new and of my invention herein and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The arrangementof the projections D, cavities E, dovetails b c F, and wedge-keys G, constructed and combined substantially in the manner and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony of which invention I hereunto set my hand.
