SIGNOR TO HIMSELF AND JOHN J. JONES, OF SAME PLACE.

BUILDINGS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 337,564, dated March 9. 1886.

Application filed November 14, 1885 Serial No. 182,870. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern..-

Be it known that I, ALBERT O. DAUGHERTY, of North Belle Vernon, in the county of Westmoreland and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Siding for Buildings, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention consists in constructing the siding for buildings of uniform thickness throughout, the outer sides of the tongued edges thereof being cut away to form a watershed to each course, and having inclined surfaces on the tongued edges, through which to nail the siding to the studding, as will hereinafter be described.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming partof this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figures 1 and 2 represent cross-sections of boards for siding buildings having my improved joints thereon.

A B in the accompanying drawings represent sections through two courses of siding for buildings, showing thejoints formed with my improved tongue and groove. The boards for siding are prepared with the tongue on one edge and the groove on the other edge in the usual manner. The tongue 0 and shoulder D on the edge of a board are of the ordinary form, so as to present, together with the inner lip, E, of the groove on the next adjacent board, a close joint and smooth surface to the studding, as represented in the several figures.

In order to protect the tongue 0 and provide a surface below it, so that each course of siding may be nailed to'the studding without the nails passing throughthe tongue, and the heads of the nails covered or concealed by the next succeeding course, the outer lip, I, of the grooved side of each board extends downward below the shoulder of the tongue, as represented in the several figures, so that when a course of siding is nailed to the studding near its upper edge the outer side or lip, I, of the next succeeding course will cover or conceal the nail-heads, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.

In Figs. 1 and 2 the surfaces through which the nails are driven are inclined or beveled, so that the nails may be driven into the studding at an angle downward, which tends to force the joint snugly together.

The outer sides, J, of the tongued edges of the boards are cut away beneath the extended edges of the lips I, so as to conduct the water from the joints, as represented in the several figures.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

Siding for buildings, consisting of the boards .-being of uniform thickness throughout, the outer sides of thetongued edges thereof cut away beneath the extended outer lips of the grooved edges to form a water-shed to each course, in combination with the inclined surfaces on the tongued edges, through which the nails are driven, substantially as and for the purpose herein described.
