SHEET METAL GdRNER-IRON. No. 364,044. Patented May 31, 1887; 4

' sheeting applied to buildings.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 364,044, dated May 31, 1887.

Application filed January 8, 1887. Serial No. 223,757. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LONGLEY LEWIS SAGEN- DORIH, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sheet- Metal Corner-Irons, of which the following is a specification. r,

' These corner-irons are applied to corners of the outside or the inside of buildings, or both,

as the case may be, and they are primarily intended to be used in connection with metal The metal sheeting used in conjunction with such a corner-iron may be of any desired description. For the purposes of illustration I have in certain of the figures of the drawings shown the corner-iron in combination with corrugated sheet-iron or metallic weather-boarding.

The various features of my invention and the advantages arising from their use, con- I jointly or otherwise, will be apparent from the following description.

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a section of my improved sheet metal corner-iron for use on a convex corner of a building. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a section of my improved sheet-metal corneriron for use on a concave corner of a building. Fig.v 3 is a top view of my corner-iron as applied to the outside of a building and used in connection with corrugated iron. Fig. 4c is a top view of my corner-iron as applied to the inside or .outside of a building and--a1sed in connection with corrugated iron. Fig 5 "is a perspective view of a corner of a house covered with metallic weather-boarding and finished with a convex corner-iron, such as shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 6 is a sectional view illustratingan ornamental modification of the corneriron shown in Fig. 2, and showing its use as a cornice to cover the angle between the ceiling and wall, both the ceiling and the wall being covered with corrugated metal. Fig. 7 shows how the corner-iron shown in Fig. 6 is modified when the corrugated metal or other metal sheeting is omitted from the wall.

The corner-iron is a strip of sheet metal,

gations of the sheets E.

bent as shown in Fig. 1 for convex corners, and as shown in Fig. 2 for concave corners. The faces A A are bent at right angles to each other. At the edge of each face A an offset, B, is bent at substantially right angles to the face which it joins. In the corner-iron for 5 convex corners the offsets B are bent into the concave angle formed by the faces A A, and in the corner-iron for concave corners they are bent away from the concave angle formed by the faces A A. Each offset B is provided with a lip, O, which is parallel, or substantially so, to the adjacent face A. The offsets B are made about equal to or preferably slightly deeper than the corrugations of the metallic weather-boarding or corrugated iron with 6 which they are to be used.

In use the iron is, in the case of convex an-v gles, fitted against the corner-post D, the lips C resting against the face of the post and the faces A set out so as to be in about the same 0 plane with the tops of the corrugations, as shown in Fig. 1. The iron is held in place by nails N, driven into the post D. The corrua gated iron E overlaps the lips G, and its edge fits up against the offset B. Similarly with 7 5 concave corners, the lips Crest against the wall and are overlapped by the corrugated iron E, which fits against the offsets B, and the faces A are about even with the tops of the corru- The corrugated sheet is held in place by nails a, driven into the post D, the direction of the nails being preferably at right angles to the surface of the corrugated sheet where the nail passes through the said sheet.

' \Vhen the corner-iron is to be used for finishing the angle between the ceiling and the wall, as shown in Fig. 6, the metal forming the faces A Ais preferably bent into some ornamental form, as shown, instead of making 0 ably inserted between the lip O and the face A, to form a backing through which a nail E overlapping the flanges O O, and abutting may be driven. I against the oflsets B B, substantially as and What I claim as new and of my invention, for the purposes specified. and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is LONGLEY LEWIS SAGENDOR'PII. 5 The combination of the post or posts D and Attest:
