"Vintage Machinery" entry for Stover Machine Co.
Description:
In the court case of "Stover v. Halsted", Stover and J. A. Fay & Co. sued Ezekiel S. Halsted and Gilbert W. Merritt for infringing this patent. The defendants were using a Richardson, Meriam & Co. planer covered under patent 70,592. Both of the patents in question address the problem of planing wood too wide to pass between the matcher heads. Both patents allow the matcher heads to be lowered below the platen so they are not in the way. The complainants were granted an injunction.
