Comments

In May 1850, Edwin Jenney of New Bedford, MA, was granted US patent {7,380} for “Machinery for sawing staves”. Mr. Jenney was an American who relocated to Canada West (now Ontario) for just long enough to apply for a Canadian patent. At that time, only Canadian residents were eligible to apply for patents. In any event, Mr. Jenney was a successful cooper, and so far as we can tell he never manufactured either of the two machines he patented. XC patents are Canadian patents issued between 1824 and 1869. “A cylinder saw and shaft are attached to a head and rest upon bearings at each end of the saw frame. The saw is nearly surrounded by a double circle or band, connected by bolts, between the sides of which rollers are fixed bearing on the outside of the saw, and guiding it in a true circle whilst in operation. The rollers are raised or lowered by screws. The timber is taken to the saw by a moveable carriage and the saw runs towards it.”
