STAPLE DRIVING IMPLEMENT.
No. 350,420. Patented Oct. 5, 1886.
w vtmaaeo @WQW Y U ITED STATES PATENT OFFIC JOHN WESLEY DILLON, OF CATLETTSBURG, KENTUCKY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 350,420, dated October 5, 1886.
Application filed February 8, 1886. Serial No. 191,201. No model.)
' To all whom it may concern-.-
Be it known that I, JOHN 'WEsLEY DILLON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oatlettsburg, in the'county of Boyd and State of Kentucky, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Driving Vire Staples; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accom-' panying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
My improvement relates to staple-driving devices of that class consisting of a single body one end of which is adapted to have the driving force applied directly thereto, and the other end provided with a staplereceiviug recess having a transverse groove or recess at right angles thereto for the reception of the feneeWire.
The improvement consists in having the recessed end beveled or gradually converge, forming a chisel-edge, which will penetrate the post and permit'the staple being driven close against the wire at one and the same operation without removing the implement.
In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of the device. Fig. 2 is a section on the line as 00, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a section on thcline y y of Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 is a view looking toward the staple-driving end. 4
The body A ofthe device may be of any desired shape and size suitable for performing the required work. Its lower end is provided with the usual staple-receiving recess, a, and transverse groove'b, forming the legs a, which prevent the spreading of the staple when driving. The sides of the body near the recessed end gradually converge, and at the end approximate the contour of the recess, forming a chisel-shaped edge, which readily penetrates the wood and permits the driving of the staple close upon the wire without removing the implement. The bottom of the wire-receiving recess is slightly in advance of the bottom of the staple-receiving recess. In practice the head of the staple fits the bottom of the recess a, and its inner side projects slightly beyond the bottom of the cross-groove I), thus bending the wire, as indicated at B, when the staple is driven home. By thus indenting the wire and swaging a portion thereof into the post simultaneously with the driving home of the staple, the work of putting up wire fencing is expedited, and the strands are prevented from having any longitudinal movement.
The implement may be held in the hand after the fashion of a cold-chisel; or it may be provided with a handle, an opening, 0, being provided for the purpose.
I am aware that a device for holding and driving stapleshas been heretofore constructed, consisting of a shank or handle,one end of which v is adapted to receive the blows of the drivingv implement and the opposite end is provided with a recess adapted to hold the staple, and a transverse slot or recess across said first recess and at right angles thereto for the reception of the fence-wire. N 0 claim is made, broadly, to the above construction as forming part of my invention.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure byLetters Patent, 7 1s A stapledriving device consisting of abody having a recess in its end to receive and hold the staple, and a groove cut transverse and at right angles to said recess and hav'mgthe sides of said recessed end converging to ap proximate the contour of the lower edgeofg staple-receiving recess, forming a chisel-sha1 edge, substantially as and for the purpose forth. I
In testimony whereof I atlix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
JOHN WESLEY DILLON.
