J. TU'I'BUR. RANGER P08 I018". IAIN-IDAHO! nu: an a, nu.

2mm Kay 18, 1909.

----'-- m c i 0'0 9 JZZZS tam the angular-member in turn tending carrying-memlmr of any type suit- 1V however, three separate thicknes at metal are provided at the bark of the seatmember, and at the point adjacent to the juncture with the supporting-wall, whereby a great strength and rigidity are secured.

In the type of hanger shown in Fig. V. i-t modified by l providing a double thickneae of metal 1: c" 3 in the rearwardly-extending part, and a brace or stay 4: a, united by rivets and; rendering the back portion of the seat. or 5 timber-st: iport much more rigid and secure than is tainable by any other disposition of the metal with which 1 am acquainted. Thus the several parts a c of the rear portion of the angular-member are bent inward upon the face of part c, and the extremities a c are bent at right angles thereto, and riveted together to form a stay or strut for the back portions 0 of the seat-member, as best shown in Fig. V of the drawings.

With the rearward] -extending carryingmember firmly embed ed or built into a napporting-wall, it will be appreciated that with any of the hangers shown, a relatively light seat-member may he emplolyed. Accordingly, thie l8 blanked out of ight gage steel. and is secured to such rearwnrdly-exable'to the character of building con-struction with \Vhiclt the han er is employed. At the critical or vulnerab e oints of juncture between the rearwar ly extending member and the seat-member, I may provtde one, two or three separate webs of metal, as set forth for supporting the weight to carried b the hanger, but the {Lia-erase details describe and shown need not r gidly adhered to in practicing my inventton.

I therefore claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, the following 1. In a hanger for joists, the combination with a timber-seating member formed of sheet metal, having an integral bottom, sidep eees and double reinforced back-portions riveted w ather, of an angular-member secured to the reinforced back and extending rearwardly at an angle therewith for carrym tbe wetght of the supported timber, an antially as set forth.

2. In a lianger for ot-sis, theeombination with a timber-coating member formed of sheet metal, having an integral bottom, sidepiecea and double miuioreed baclt portions riveted together, of an L-shapedmember into the porthan with a ttu|lau'-.-a-ating member having an integral bottom, sulwlmt'lmns, and rem-,

forced lau-kqmrtiona, a rearwardly-extemling big or ear, of an angular member secured to the bark portions of the timbersontiug member am with one limb extending rearwardly to engage the supportingwall and said lug, atthe angle substantially as set forth.

4. in a sheet metal hanger for waits, a timber-supporting member blanked out or beat to form an integral bottom, side-portions, and overlapping back-portions and rearwardly-extcndmg lugs oren's; said back-portions, and lugs respectively being riveted to ther to reinforce each other and stay the \angcr at the point of support, substantially as set forth.

5. In a hanger for joists, the combination with a timber-receiving member, 01 an angular member secured intermediately and interiorly thereof, comprising an upright and a marwardly-extendmg L-shaped part bent or doubled over to form a vertical stay or strut for the timher-mceiving member, so stantielly as set forth.

6. In a hanger for joists, the combination with a timber-receiving member, of an L- sha ed or angular-member having one of its imbs intertorly engaeing the timber-receiving member and its other limb extendin" back substantially at right angles therewith and folded u wardly a ong its edge to engage exterior y the back of the timber-receiving member and stay the same, tially as set forth.

7. In a hanger for joistg-the combination with a timberseat, of an angular or L- shaped member rearwardly attached thereto, comprising a \cl'tirnl attachiug-uuuubu' and an integral web folded longitudinally upon itsclf along either edge with its extremities bent into engagement in a vertical plane and riveted together to form a rear strut or stay for the timber-seat, eubstantially as set forth.
