"Vintage Machinery" entry for Thomas Robinson & Son
This novel and important invention uses helical saw blades attached to cutter blocks that rotate about 150 RPM to cut pins and tails. The dovetails could be through, half-blind or even full-bind. The machine's design demanded precise and heavy construction but the result was a dovetail more precisely cut than any previous machine-cut dovetails. We have not been able to find an equivalent US patent. In any event, the machine was a sensation at the Paris Exhibition of 1867. That machine was built by Thomas Robinson & Son of England and demonstrated by Mr. Armstrong himself. Robinson also imported the machines into the US and Canada.
