NITED STATES TELFORD CLARENCE BATOIIELOR, OF W'EST KENSINGTON, COUNTY OF MIDDLESEX, AND ARTHUR LATCH, OF SOUTH SIIIELDS, COUNTY OF DURHAM, ENGLAND.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 411,637, dated September 24, 1889. Application led April 3, 1888. Serial No. 269,506. (No model.) Patented in England December 3, 1887, Noi 16,675.
To @ZZ whom it may concern,.-
Be it known that we, TELFORD CLARENCE BArcnELon and ARTHUR LATCH, subjects of the Queen of Great Britain, residing, respect ively, at S Barons Court Road, lVest Kensington, county of Middlesex, England, and at eddeek Hall, South Shields, county of Durham, England, have invented a new and useful Improved Method of Splicin g lVire Ropes, (for which we have obtained a patent in Great Britain, No. 16,675, bearing date December 3, 1887,) of which the following is a specification. j
This invention has for its object to provide a novel method of splicing wire rope for the purpose of connecting two ropes or for forming an endless rope. This object we accomplish in the manner and by the means hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, illust-rating our invention, in which-- Figure lis an elevation of two ends of a rope to be connected according to our method; Fig. 2, a similar view showing the ends con nected; Figs. 3, 4, 5, and 7, views similar to Fig. l, showing modiiications; Fig. G, a view showing the ends exhibited in Fig. 5 as connected, and Fig. S a view showing the ends exhibited in Fig. 7 as connected.
In order to enable those skilled in the art to carry out our invention, we will now describe the same in detail, first referring` to Figs. l, 2, 3, and el, wherein A and B indicate two ends of wire rope comprising` numerous wires spirally twisted together and thus formed into what we term a single-strand rope. The ends to be spliced are formed with corresponding recesses and projections, and this is effected by alternately cutting off a part of the wires comprising the strand, 'so that the projections and recesses at one end A will accurately or nearly accurately lit the projections and recesses at the other end B. The wires at the ends are then pressed or beat into intimate and permanent union while heated almost to fusion, as is ordinarily prac ticed in, welding metals together.
In Figs. 1 and 2 the recesses and projections are of uniform size 5 but in Figs. 3 and 4, which show the two ends of a rope to be spliced, the recesses and projections slightly vary in size, but each projection must correspond to the depth of the recess to receive it.4 In Figs. 5 and the recesses and projections are formed by beveling the end of each individua-l wire comprising the ends A B, and the rope ends are spliced by welding, as set forth with reference to Figs. 1, 2, 3, and i. In Figs. 7 and 8 the wires comprising the ends A B are spread apart or separated, so that the wires at one end can be inserted into the spaces between the wires at `the. other end, and thus the wires at the ends of the rope are interposed, after which they are joined by welding, as before set forth.
IVe do not wish to be understood as limiting ourselves to the precise means set forth for causing the ends of the rope to perma nently adhere, as other means equivalent to welding may be adopted, such as fusing or brazing. The strand or strands comprising the wire rope may be of any suitable form'in cross-section, and the invention may be used for making endless wire rope or for splicing the ends of two or more wire ropes, and likewise the invention can be used for construct ing tubes, cables, or bands of wires.
Having thus described our invention,what we claim is 1. The method herein described of splicing the ends of wire rope comprising numerous wires spirally twisted together, which consists in forming t-he ends of the rope with corresponding recesses and projections, fitting the projections and recesses together, and welding the wires, substantially as set forth.
The method herein described of splicing the ends of wire rope, which consists in cntting away or removing portions of some of the wires at the ends of the rope to form corresponding projections and recesses, hitting the projections into the recesses1 and welding the wires, substantially as described.
In witness whereof we have hereto signed our names, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, this 1st day of February, 1888.
