(Cl. 140-55)
My invention relates to a special tool useful in
fence construction.
`
An object of my invention is to provide such a
quickly clamp a „
tool which will efficiently and
5 fence staple about the wire and the iron post at
tached thereto.
A further object of my invention is to provide a
tool `of such character which will clamp the staple
firmly without the necessity of using pliers or
10 other such tools.
,
A further object of 'my invention is to provide
means for clamping or clinching the staple in one
operation.
‘
.
A further object of my invention is to provide
15 a tool of such character which is simple in con
struction and can be manufactured at a very
reasonable cost.
,
`
With these and other objects in view, my in
vention consists inthe construction, arrangement
and combination of the various parts of my de
vice, whereby the objects contemplated are at
tained, as hereinafter more fully set forth,
pointed out in my claims, and illustrated in the
accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1 is a fragmentary elevation showing a
25
staple about to be clinched,
Figure 2 is a plan view showing the tool Just
before clinching, and taken in section along the
20
lines`2-2 of Figurel, ‘
30
Figure 3 shows the complete clinching opera
same thereover. To accomplish this result, I pro
vide the tool which will now be described, and
which includes the handle I9 to which is pivoted
the further retractile handle 20 which is pivoted
at 2 I. The handle 20 is bent upwardly at 22 and CR
terminates in the furthe!` horizontal extension 23
which is pivoted by means of the pin 24 to the link
25. The link 25 includes theopen lengthened slot
26 which receives the pin 21 beneath `which is
positioned the Washer 28. 'I'he member 25 is ex 10
tended into the integral portion 31 which in turn
is bent at 38 into the enlarged portion 33 (see Fig
ures 1 and 4). The pin 21 is attached solidly to
the arm 28 which in turn is an integral exten
sion of -the portion 30, which portion is an exten 15
sion of the handle I9.
` The extension 30 extends into the portion 3l
which terminates in the pair of arcuate portions
32 (see Figure 4), which portions are adapted to
straddle the wire I5 as shown. Similarly, a fur 20
ther extension 33 terminates in the slightly arcu
ate portion 34 which also straddle the wire in the
same manner on the other side of the steel post.
Now that the construction of my tool has been de
25
scribed, I will explain'- its operation.
The staple itself is already formed in that form
shown in Figure 2 with the lengthened portion I8
extending outwardly as shown. After the staple
vis sprung into position as explained in Figures 1
and 2, the tool is placed against the steel' post Ill 30
with the arcuate members 32 against one edge
tion, and
‘
`
`
a thereof and straddling the staple andwire. Then
Figure 4 is a side view of Figure 2.
In wire fence construction, quite frequently >a the arcuate »portion 34 of the tool is placed against
standard steel post of T shaped cross section is the other-edge as shown, and the tool is then in 35
the position as 4shown in Figure 2 with the handles
35 generally used, to which is clamped the wire by - I9 and 20 at their widest divergence. Next the
means of a wire staple. The clinching of the
staple requires tools such as pliers or the like and handles I8 and 2D are drawn together, and it will
seen that as these members are drawn together
is quite a cumbersome method. I will show that be
the member 23 will be pulled downwardly as well
in my invention that the clinching is accom
as the link 25, since the slot 26 is slidably engaged
40 plished quickly and eñiciently Without resorting with the pin 21. At the same time, the upper
to any such auxiliary tools.
I have used the character IIJ to designate the portion 31 will be forced inwardly against the
standard type of steel post which is T shaped in extended portion I8 of the staple during such
cross section and having the central web I I. The movement, and the bentover member 39 will force
-_ the extension I 8 over the upper edge 35 of the
45 post I0 also includes the projections I2 extending web II, and at the end of the operation the bent
outwardly from the surface thereof, an'd between
which is clinched the wire so that the same will over portion 38 will be pulled downwardly and
not become displaced on account of _these pro
jections.
50
.
>'I'he staple is indicated by the character I3,
which staple is bent over at Il (see Figure 2) and
thence passes under the wire I5 at I6, thence over
the sameat I1 and terminates in the lengthened
portion I8. The problem then is to bend the por
55 tion I8 `down against the web II and bend the
against the web, thereby firmly clinching the ex
tended member I8 into the bent over form as
at 36.
,
`
50
The linkages and pivots are so arranged tha
after the member I8 is bent over the web, the
arcuate portion 39 is then drawn down firmly.
and in this way the entire staple I3 is then bent
inwardly at Il and at 36 and the wire is then 55
2
2,120,225
m'mly clinched. ’Ihe tool is then released by
spreading the handles apart, when it is then
ready for the next operatic .
'
e
It will be understood, of course, that variations
can be made in the tool, or the necessary adjust
ments for accommodating diiferent standard sizes
ofposts and staples. It will also be noted that
the tool is positive in operation since the extended
portion Il must necessarily bend the staple as
described and -bring the same down in the corre
sponding manner on account oi' swinging of the
member 2i by virtue of the pivoted connections
explained above.
' '
It will now be seen that I have provided a
clinching tool for staples used in fence construc
tion, which tool clinches the wire against a post
in a minimum of time, which is convenient for
ready use, which is positive in operation, and
' which emciently clamps the staple in the best
manner without the necessity of using extra tools.
It will be seen further that such a device would
be particularly advantageous in the usual case
where such operation should be accomplished
quickly to accommodate a great many points of
attachment.
It will be seen further that I have provided
the above mentioned characteristics in a con
struction ofegreat simplicity, and which can be
manufactured at a resonable cost.
'
Some changes may be made in the construc
tion and arrangement of the parts of my inven
tion without departing from the real spirit and
purpose of my invention, and‘it is my intention to
cover by my claims any modified forms of struc
ture or use of mechanical equivalents, which may
be reasonably included within their scope.
