IMPROVEMENT IN IRON TIES FOR COTTON-BALES.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 2S, IS7, dated May 8, 1860.
o all whom ib may concern:
Beit known that I, WM. S. LoUGHBoRoUGH, of Rochester, in the county of Monroe and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Self-Adjusting Iron Tie; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in Which- Figure l shows the tie as applied to the ends B and Y of the hoop. Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the sa1ne,showing the ends B and Y secured by the ball F. Fig. 3 is the same section, and shows the position of the ball F when the tie is being applied.
The nature of my invention consists in providing iron ties with a ball operating against an inclined plane, so as to allow the hoop or band to be taken up#7 when necessary, without requiring any readjustrnent of the tie.
I construct the shell D of the tie with an offset or chamber, J, on its face side, the outer wall oi which, being raised from the plane of the shell to an angle of twelve degrees, more or less, forms an inclined plane for the ball to work against.
The ties may be made either of cast, malleable, or wrought iron. If of the former, the
l ball should be placed in the core, so as to be inclosed within the shell D when east.
To apply the tie, pass the endB of the hoop through the shell and behind theball F, which rolls it into the larger part of the oiset J, thus leaving room to pass the other end, Y, through behind B. Then slide the tie up until the ball assumes the position shown in Fig. 2, which ties the band eifectually, and the greater the strain upon the hoop or band the more firmly it will be held, and when the strain is removed, as in the act of repressing cotton and the like, the ball becomes free, and may be rolled up, as in Fig. 3, by sliding the end B farther through.
It may be found desirable to bend the end 2 and 3, to prevent a possibility of that end drawing out.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is"
The construction of iron ties, substantially as and for the purposes specified.
