Patent Number Date Title Name City Description
26,060 Nov. 08, 1859 Machine for making box-joints James Stimpson Baldwinville, MA Patent references an earlier patent, 16557, for a box-joint design. The box joints in question are dowel-pinned half-lap joints.
An 1873 Massachusetts business directory has an ad for A. F. Young, maker of various kinds of chair-making machinery, plus "Stimpson's patent dowel joint machine". We have also seen ads from Goodspeed & Wyman for "Stimpson's dowel joint machine". As late as 1908, G. N. Goodspeed was advertising "Stimpson's dovetail machine", a remarkable longevity achievement for this 1859 design.
This patent was extended for seven years.
