Description:
This is the earliest known patent for the bandsaw, although it likely was not a truly new idea at the time. Bandsaws would not become practical for another 60 years when metallurgy had improved so that a blade could withstand the constant bending and straightening. Unlike modern designs, the frame of this saw is not designed to maximize throat depth. Most likely the inventor intended the wheels to be very large in diameter so as to reduce the bending stresses on the blade.
