WHITNEY's first invention was a contrivance for stretching wrinkles out of cloth while in the fulling mill. Then came a machine for smoothing hard wood after passing through the ordinary planer. This has been patented in several European countries, and is in general use. A gauge lathe, a machine for grinding cylinder saws, and improvements in cylinder planers are among his inventions. The band-saw, which is the poetry of invention, was the conception of a Frenchman, but it has been improved and made practical by Mr. WHITNEY. Improvements in machinery which cannot claim to be new principles, but which greatly facilitate work, have been made in large number by the ingenious mechanic of Winchendon; Res.
