Patent XC-504: 1855-03-22, Improvements in machinery for manufacturing waggon spokes and other articles irregular in their form

X Number Date Inventor City Title
XC-504 1855-03-22 Reuben P. Benton Toronto, ON Canada Improvements in machinery for manufacturing waggon spokes and other articles irregular in their form

Comments

US patent {10,662} was granted to R. P. Benton of Rochester, NY, for a “machine for dressing spokes”. It is likely that the Canadian and American patents cover the same machine, and that Mr. Benton was in reality a resident of the USA who pretended to reside in Toronto so he could obtain a Canadian patent (at the time, only Canadian residents could be granted patents.) XC patents are Canadian patents issued between 1824 and 1869.
