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.

275,139 Apr. 03, 1883 Band sawing machine Wilson W. Carey Lowell, MA The outermost part of the bandsaw table can be lowered to provide maximum cut height, or raised level with the rest of the table to provide maximum cut width. I love this idea. Where can I buy a saw like this? Not on the used market, apparently, for we have never seen an example.

308,838 Dec. 02, 1884 Self-lubricating bearing Charles E. Gee Lowell, MA "This invention relates to improvement in self-lubricating bearings particularly designed for hubs for loose pulleys, although the invention is equally well adapted, with a slight modification, to stationary bearings."
This patent is very interesting because it ties together two 19th century woodworking machinery makers: C. E. Gee and W. W. Carey, both of whom manufactured machinery under his own name. It appears that this patent is from Gee's early career, before he started out on his own.
