In 1894 the Eastman Lumber Co. was supposedly manufacturing a patent bark rossing removing) machine and a horizontal bandsaw for cross-cutting saw logs. The horizontal bandsaw may not have ever been manufactured in quantity, but the "Stearns Brothers patent" bark rosser was advertised for a year or so. The company seems to have down-sized in 1905 and the last traces of it we have found are some passing mentions from 1909.

From August 1894 The Canada Lumberman
