Patent specification
This patent is for what could be considered a very early scrollsaw. It describes itself as a sawmill, and it was intended for cutting curved ship timbers. According to the American Journal of Improvements in the Useful Arts, "A machine has been recently erected by David Baker, a native of Massachusetts, at present a resident in this city (Washington, DC), for sawing timber, which will supersede the necessity of preparing moulds, and will, of course, save that expense. It is expected the Navy Commissioners will purchase a right to the use of one of these machines. It is called 'The Curvelinear Saw Mill,' and will cut timber to almost any shape that may be required for ships' use."
