07 Mar At JEM we would like to pay tribute to all women inventors
At JEM we would like to pay tribute to all women inventors throughout the history. And especially to the American Tabitha Babbitt, creator of the first Circular Saw, which is one of the company’s pillars so to speak. Without her part of today’s business would not exist.
Around 1813, at the age of 34, she created the Circular Saw in order not to waste some of the motion generated with the use of the two-handed saw. Later on, she connected the saw to a hydraulic machine which reduced the effort when cutting wood.
Although she never patented her invention her machine was exhibited in 1948 at the New York State Museum.
