"Vintage Machinery" entry for Schaake Machine Works
The inventor had started working in the Baltimore, Md., fruit-canning industry, then in 1888 he moved to California where he "incorporated several companies for the production of cans for the then burgeoning fishing industry." About the time this patent was issued, he moved to New Westminster, B.C., to take advantage of the Fraser River fisheries. He worked for the Automatic Can Company until a fire destroyed their plant in 1898, and when he was approached by one John Kellington who had developed an improved can topping and washing machine. Schaake purchased the rights to Kellington's machine and then opened his own business, The Schaake Machine Works, to manufacture and repair fishing-industry machinery. Before that time he had licensed some of his patents to the Vulcan Iron Works of New Westminster. In 1901 Schaake was approached by Frank L. Johnson who had developed an improved shingle sawing machine, which Schaake licensed and manufactured to considerable success.
