"Vintage Machinery" entry for Berry & Orton Co.
Description:
"My invention consists in the provision, in a band sawing machine, of means for moving the saw in order to avoid contact with the timber while running back or jigging the carriage on which the same is supported."

D. C. Prescott's 1910 monograph, "The Evolution of Modern Band Saw Mills for Sawing Logs", says, "Up to 1888, London, Berry & Orton of the Atlantic Works, Philadelphia, were builders of log Band Mills and enjoyed quite an extensive trade, and some of them found their way into the northwest... The wheels were six feet in diameter with wood rims attached to a metal rim inside of them; the faces were rubber and the saws were six inches wide."
