XC patents are Canadian patents issued between 1824 and 1869. “It consists in the employment of a pair of adjustable cutters through or between which the stave is passed, the said cutters being so arranged and secured in the machine, as to accommodate their action to any irregularity in the form of the stave being acted upon. It further consists in the use of a driver, having in its end a roller, the end of which is made to bear against and drive forward the stave, and will adjust itself to any twisting or irregularity in the passage of the stave between the cutters.”
