Key to Links for Patent Information

USPTO = U.S. Patent Office . Images of the actual patent can be viewed on the U.S. Patent Office web site but a special TIFF viewer must be installed with your browser in order properly work. More information on how to configure your computer to view these patents can be found at TIFF image Viewers for Patent Images.
DATAMP = Directory of American Tool And Machinery Patents . A sister site to VintageMachinery.org with information on patents related to machinery and tools. A much easier user interface than the USPTO's for finding information on machinery patents.

405,110 Jun. 11, 1889 Guide for band-saws Reuben McChesney Frankfort, NY This patent was subsequently improved in patent 425,105.
425,105 Apr. 08, 1890 Guide for band-saws Reuben McChesney Philadelphia, PA Improvements to patent 405,110; the primary improvement is to extend the side guides downwards so that they overlap with the ball-bearing back guide. As well, the rapid rotation of the back guide—which led to excessive wear—was reduced by substituting a roller bearing that did not require lubrications.
These guides were sold by Goodell & Waters as the "Mohawk Dutchman" blade guides.
