@like f "Mi'ouer/ EDWARD S. WLNCHESTER, or BoSToN, MASSACHUSIMTS.v Letters Patent No. 70,490, dated November 5, 1867; 'reissue No.- 3,187, dated November 10, 1868.


The Schedule referred to in these Letten Patent and making part of the lame To all whom it frhay concern:

Be it known that l, EDWARD S. WINoHnsTnn, of Boston, in the county of Suffolk, and State of` Massafchusetts, have invented a. new und useful Improvement in Tips or Feet for the Legs of Chairs; and I do hereby declare that the following is a. full and exact vdescription thereof, reference being had `to the accompanying 1lr.rwing,nud to the letters o1" reference marked thereon.

With reference to the drawing, which is a sectional view, the part designated by the letter C represents that part of' the tip or foot which, in use, is interposed between the chair-leg and the floor, or other' surface upon which it may be used.

Fiom the part G extends the rim, socket, or errule pau-t, fo embrace the lower part or foot of' thefchnirleg. This rim, socket, or ferrule port, need notbe restricted its to form, except that it is joined. to the pnrt O, nl l zn'ound the spa-ce reserved within, of' proper form fo receive the lower part or foot ofthe chair-leg. '.llic i1`1n,.socket, or f'errule purtis marked A B, :nld the principle of its operation is to hold the lower foot part (l, by u continuous connect-ion all around the` outside, iirnily to the leg or foot ofthe chair, while it also einbrznfes the lower portion of the leg or foot of the chziir, or :t reduced extremity thereof, So :Ls to protcotit froiu chock ing, splitting, or other inj ury, by enclosing it within itself.

vWhen applied, the rim or socket embracing. the leg or f'oot, es described, holds the part G very firmly in its position, without liability to tip to one side. It also secures it firmly to the chair-leg with or without the use of :muy adhesive agent other than the contractile power ofthe rim or socket. The whole is made of vulcanized rubber, or other elastic or semi-elastic material,

so that it ves the triple purpose of protecting the lower end or foot ofthe chair-leg, and the floor on which it is used from injury, and gives, also, elasticity to the action of the chair.
