APPLIOATION FILED JULYII. 1905.

HARVEY W. COLE, OF RUSHVILLE, ILLINOIS.
FILLER AND SUPPORT FOR CARRlAGE-BOWS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 4, 1906.
Application filed ly 11,1905. Serial r0. 269.237.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HARVEY W. COLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Rushville, in the county of Schuyler and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fillers and Supports for Carriage-Bows, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to an improvement in fillers and supports for carriage-bows; and the present invention is an improvement on the construction disclosed in Letters Patent No. 730,094, granted to me June 2, 1903, the object of my present invention being to provide a lighter, cheaper, and stronger filler, ca pable of being easily made at a relatively small initial cost.
With the foregoing objects in view my invention consists in a sheet-metal filler comprising a central web of two thicknesses of metal having outwardly-extending flanges at the edges and in certain other novel features of construction and combinations of parts, which will be hereinafter described, and pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a view in perspective of my improved filler in its preferred form. Fig. 2 is a transverse section, and Fig. 3 is a transverse section of a slightly-modified form.
In the construction shown in Figs. 1 and 2 the filler is preferably made of a single piece of sheet metal bent to form the central web, which preferably tapers from end to end and is made up of two folds of the metal, as indicated at 1 1, and at the edges the flanges 2 2 are formed by a double fold of metal, and one edge 3 is preferably overlapped to hold the parts together. This affords a simple and substantial device and may be said to be the preferred form of the invention.
In the construction illustrated in Fig. 3 the flller is composed of two strips of sheet metal, each of which 'has the outwardly-projecting flanges 4 4 at the edges. These two strips of metal are placed back to back to form the Web, with their wedges extending outwardly in opposite directions. The central portion, which constitutes the web, preferably tapers gradually throughout the entire length of the filler, as in the other form. Binders 6 6 inclose the flanges, these binders being each composed of a strip of metal with the edges turned inwardly toward each other around and beneath the flanges 4 4 of the strips. In this way the four pieces of sheet metal composing this form of filler are assembled and bound securely together, thus making, in effect, a filler like the one previously described and the one patented, but composed entirely of sheet metal and of separate pieces instead of a single piece of sheet metal or of a single casting.
A filler constructed in either form just described is easy and cheap to manufacture,
comparatively light in weight, possesses adequate strength, all required flexibility, and is effectual in the accomplishment of the purposes for which it is intended.
Other slight changes might be resorted to in the form and arrangement of the several parts described without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention, and hence I do not Wish to limit myself to the exact construction herein set forth; but,
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
As an article of manufacture, a filler or support for carriage-bows composed of sheet metal of at least two-ply thickness throughout and comprising a central web tapering throughout its entire length and outwardlyprojecting flanges at each edge of the web.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
