This maker was better known for their metalworking tools and machinery, but they also made a couple of woodworking machines. An 1869 Scientific American ad reads, "L. D. Fay, manufacturer and dealer in machinists' tools and woodworking machinery. Manufactory, Worcester, Mass. Warehouse and salesroom, St. Louis, MO. Large variety of lathes, lathe-chucks, engines, sawmills, etc." Presumably the sawmills were not made by L. D. Fay.
