"Vintage Machinery" entry for Lemuel Hedge
Description:
This important patent was granted to one of the earliest New England makers of rules. According to a 1987 Gristmill (MWTCA) article by Clifford D. Fales, "It has been claimed that Hedge's original dividing engine remained in use in the Stanley Rule and Level Co. plant at least as late as 1923."

The organ in the church at Windsor, VT was built by "local inventive genius" Lemuel Hedge.
