For an improvement in Horse Shoes; Sumner King, Sullivan, Madison county, New York, April 1.
The improvement designated is the making the caulks, or projections, moveable, instead of permanent; for this purpose the shoe is to be formed with an opening or mortise in the toe to admit the moveable caulk to slide in, when it is to be secured by a bolt, or screw and nut. " The hinder caulks may be fastened on in the same way, or they may be permanent." " The caulks can be cast, or made of steel or iron, or any other metal." " What I claim as my invention, is, the making of moveable caulks, or projections, for horse shoes, whether made of cast or wrought iron, or of any other metal as above described."
