Pin Hunting

When did Walter Hunt invent the tree cutting saw ?

Please tell me the year the tree cutting saw was invented and some information about it.

Walter Hunt did not invent the *first* tree cutting saw, but On January 6, 1836 he was granted a patent for a particularly 'useful' new version of the old standard. From what anecdotal evidence exists, his was one that employed a sort of screw or grapple to hold the sawing mechanism to the tree. The tree would then be felled by a back and forth motion like any other saw.

It's important to note that although his family may have been granted a number of patents after Hunt's passing, this particular patent was granted to Walter himself. Indeed, he was granted this patent some thirteen years before he received one for the safety pin.

Hunt's 1836 patent was one of the X-Patents which were all but destroyed in the Great Patent Fire of 1836. Over the years a number of the original US patents have been recovered and serialized with an "X" preceding their number, hence "X-Patents." While 2 of the 5 patents issued that same day have been recovered and are available for viewing, Walter Hunt's is, unfortunately not one of those.

We can tell by what documentation that *does* exist that this would have been numbered between X9299 and X9308, as X9309 is marked as having been issued on January 11. (X9303 and X9305 would also be excluded, as those are two of the X-Patents issued the same date which have been accounted for)

If you're looking for information online, neither Google Patents nor the USPTO seem to have this on file, but there is some decent documentation thanks to scanned books & old publications that help us track down at least some of the specifics.

Best of luck - great question by the way!
