From April 1922 The Wood-Worker

In 1903, Frank Stutzman obtained a cutterhead patent; a one-fourth share of the patent was assigned to one Abraham Fischer of Williamsport. The Stutzman Cutter Head Co. was established and that firm manufactured the cutterhead until 1917 or a bit before. At that time Tawney Machine Co. began manufacturing the Stutzman patent cutterhead. But by 1920, the Fischer Manufacturing Co. was also manufacturing essentially the same cutterheads. The latest mention we have found for Fischer Mfg. Co. is from October of 1923.
