SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 33,373, dated October 16, 1900.

Application filed August 27, 1900. Serial No. 28,268. Term of patent. 14 years.

" (LIZ whom it may concern..-

Be it known that I, \VILLIAM S. BIBLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented and produced a. new and original Design for \Vire-Rope Sockets, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof.

Referring to the drawings, Figures 1 and II are side elevations, taken at right angles to each other, of a wire-rope socket, showing my esign. Figs. III and IV are opposite end elevations, respectively, of the socket. Fig. V is a section on line V Fig. I. Fig. V1 is a section on line VI, Fig. I.

As shown in the drawings, one end portion of the socket has the shape of a conical basket. The baskctshaprd portion lOis beveled annularly, as at 11, at. its outer and smaller end. The other end portion I2 of the socket has the shape of a bail whose end members I23 and 13 extend from opposite sides, respectively, of the inner and larger end of the basket-shaped portion and are arranged parallel, and the central member ll of the bailshapcd portion 12 is scmicirt-ularthat is, the central member 14 of the baitshaped portion 12 curves inwardly from each end member 1 and is wider centrally than the end members lb. The member ll gradually in creases in width toward its central portion from the members 12 The external conical surrounding surface of the basket-shaped portion lllof the socket is extended inwardly, as at if), and forms the external surface of the inner ends of the end members I of the bail-shaped portion 1;, 'lhc inner side of the bail-shaped portion has the shape to quirt-d to form two continuous sloping surfaces I and N extending from the inner extremity of one of the members 13 along the said member 13, thence along the member 14, and thence along and to the inner extremity the other member Ill. The said sloping surfaces 1" and I l slope inwardly and toward each other from opposite faces 17 and 17, respectively, of the bail-shaped,portion 152 and meet centrally between the said faces. The external side of the bail-shaped portion of the socket has the contour required to form two continuous sloping surfaces 18 and 18, extending from the inner extremity of one of the members 13 along the said member 13 to the member 11 and along the latter and along the other member 13 to the inner extremity of the last-mentioned member. The sloping surfaces 18 and 18 slope outwardly and toward each other and meet centrally between the faces 17 and 17 of the bail-shaped portion. The faces 17 of the bail-shaped portion of the socket are parallel at the central mcmber l-l of the said portion, as shown at 11), Fig. II, but the sloping surfaces 16 anti 1H gradually increase in width toward the basket-shaped portion of the socket. The has ketshaped portion has its inner end beveled or sloping somewhat, as at :24), from the faces 17of the baitshaped portion toward the external conical surface of the said basketshupcd portion.

The loading or material feature of my do sign consists in the configuration of the l ailshaped portion of the socket and comprises, broadly, a parallel or approximatelyparallel arrangement of the end members of the said bail-shaped portion and the sloping surfaces I i and ]S,forming the inner sideand the outer side, respectively, of the said bail-shaped portion.

Having described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Imttcrs Patent, is

lhe design for a wircrope socket, as herein shown and described.

Signed at Cleveland, Ohio, this 13th day of August, 1900.
