US Patent: 598,729

Scroll Saw Patentee: Arthur Jones - Chicago IL Granted:1898-02-08

A cable and pulley system is used to allow the blade to rotate, the system rotating both blade-holders simultaneously. Known examples are marked "E.C. Atkins & C.., Sole Agents, Crary Machine Works "Jones Cable Saw" along with the patent date. The April 1904 issue of Carpentry & Building carried a small display ad for this saw, from "Jones & Dommersnas, 31 & 33 Indiana St., Chicago." A lawsuit gives their business name as Jones & Dommersnas Co., which is how it is rendered here in the Manufacturer field. The above-mentioned lawsuit, Jones & Dommersnas Co. v. Crary, provides insight into the licensing of this patent. See link.

Wood-turning lathe Patentees: De Witt C. Smith - St. Paul MN , Spencer E. Smith - St. Paul MN Granted:1885-07-07

The February 1886 Manufacturer and Builder had an illustrated article (p. 30) on this lathe. The lathe allows a turner to simultaneously cut about 40 work-pieces at a time. Each piece is cut to length and of regular polygonal (e.g., square, octagon) cross-section and is then clamped to the periphery of a large rotating drum. The lathe is then started and the turner can cut the profile on the outward face of each work-piece. The pieces are then rotated 90 degrees and the process is repeated. When all sides have been cut the pieces are removed from the lathe.
