1,277,377 Sep. 03, 1918 Sanding-machine Ray L. Carter Syracuse, NY The invention is an oscillating spindle sander that was sold as the Syracuse S-1 and, once Porter-Cable bought them out in 1922, the Porter-Cable S-1. Essentially the same mechanism was used in the benchtop versions, O-2, O-3, and O-4.
This patent is of additional interest because inventor Ray Carter developed the first successful general-purpose router; see patent 1,433,497.

However, upon occasion it is desirable to use cutters on these machines of substantial width—for example, dado cutters use for grooving.
"This invention has an object a cutter arbor shaft structure embodying an arrangement by which the shaft proper is adapted to support saw blades of normal thickness, and which may be extended to support cutters of different and substantial thickness."
