 +===== 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."
