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.

Patent Number Date Title Name City Description
41,889 Mar. 08, 1864 Tool Rest Addison Hathaway Chicopee, MA Baldwin & son-patent attorneys
My invention consists in making a tool-rest of a hemisphere or segment of the ball of a ball-and-socket joint, (or of the moving portion of a universal joint,) so that while the post always remains perpendicular to the plane of the lathe, the tool can be turned freely in a horizontal plane, or be so inclined at an angle to the post as to permit its point or cutting-edge to be elevated or depressed, to turn varying diameters, without elevating or depressing the post.
