SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 299,490, dated May 27, 18 84.

Application filed March 5, 1883. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, FREDERICK MUTIMER, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of Rockford, in the county of Winnebago and State of Illinois, have invented anew and useful Circle-Iron Support, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to circle-iron supports employed in the manufacture of wagons to support the circle-iron in position on the hounds, to limit the rocking movement of pivoted bolster of the forward carriage; and its object is to produce at a smaller cost a reliable support of a construction capable of a ready application, and which, in case of accident or mishap, requiring a new support or repairs, may be readily removed and a new one substituted without removing or'changing the circle-iron. To this end I have designed and constructed the circle-iron support represented in the accompanying drawings, in which- 1 Figure 1 is an isometrical representation of my improved support in its application, Fig. 2 is a vertical central section at right angles to the circle-iron. Fig. 3 is a form of my support rendered more secure in its application by the employment of an additional screwnut.

In the figures, A represents the standard portion of my improved support, having its lower end at B enlarged, producing a foot to rest on the hound of the wagon. The upper end of this standard is also enlarged, having a side arm, 0, overhanging its base, and its upper surface is provided with a semicircular groove transversely of the side projection, of a size to snugly receive the circle-iron. This standard-support is produced in tubular form to receive the main arm of a hook-staple, and its'overhanging arm 0 is also produced in tubular form, having its axis substantially parallel with the axis of the tube in the main standard, and is designed to receive the short or hook arm of a hook-staple. The distance between these tubular openings is substantially equal to the diameter of-the circle-iron.

' At D is represented a portion of the circle- I iron, which is of the usual form, and is placed in the semicircular groove formed in the upper end of the support.

At E is represented a hook-formed staple, produced from material of a size to snugly enter the tubular openings in the support. This hook-staple is of such form that its curved portion shall embrace the circle-iron, and its parallel arms F and H shall span the circleiron and enter the tubular openings in the support. The end portion of the long arm F of this hook-staple is screw-threaded to re ceive a screw-nut, I, and its length is such as to extend through the standard portion A of the support, through the hound K, the metallic bar or washer L, placed on the under side of the hound, and to receive the screwnut I, and its short arm H is of a length to properly enter the tubular opening in the side arm, 0, of the support.

These parts, constructed as shown and described, constitute my improved support, and in its application the support is placed in position on the hound prepared for its recep tion. The circle-iron is then placed in position on the support. The hook-staple is then placed in the support, having its screwthreaded arm extending through the several parts, and by means of the screw-nut on its depending screw-threaded end portion the sevsupport, having the depending end of the short arm H of the hook-staple provided with a screw-nut, and the lower end of the side arm, 0, through which it extends, in seat. form to receive the screw-nut, all of which is clearly shown in the figure.

In the foregoing I have shown and described my improved circle-iron support in connection with a circle-iron cylindrical in section, which form I prefer; but instead thereof a circle-iron rectangular in section, or of any of the known forms, may be employed,and in such cases the groove in the upper end of the standard-support and the hook-staple are produced of a conformation to receive and embrace the circle'iron, and, insteadof the hookeeive the circle-iron, and provided with tubular openings arranged upon each side of the groove. in combination with the hook-staple adapted to enter the tubular openings and embrace the circledron, substantially as de' I 5 scribed.
