  • I tried to make a timeline of the circular saw history today. It is a bit more intriguing than the shaper/spindle moulder I wrote a paper on.
So here we go:
.
~1550 an unverified reference to a Dutch rotating saw windmill.
.
~ 1640 an unverified reference to a Dutch rotating saw blade.
.
1762 Walter Taylor builds a sawmill in England.
.
1777 Englishman Samuel Miller patents a wind powered a circular sawmill. Note that circular saws are described as in common use by the time.
.
1780 someone called ”Gervinus of Germany” is credited with the invention of the circular saw. .
1781 Walter Taylor's sawmill is rebuilt in England.
.
1790 Walter Taylor's sawmill is depicted with circular saws.
.
1813 US Shaker woman Tabitha Babbitt is said to have invented the circular saw for sawmills.
.
1857 American man Marcus Tidey founds his table saw making company and manufactures has seemed to be the first ever (photographed) sliding table table saw.
First picture.
.
1858 US company Fay & Co. builds and sells the ”Cut-off sawing machine”

1869 Austrian bookmaker Frans Wertheim sells the oldest depicted foot powered table saw.

Picture 6 & 7.
.
1898 American Wood Working Machine Co. sells the first 45-degree tilting arbour table saw, a sliding table saw at that. @monitormillwork has one still running to this day.
Picture 8.
.
1906 German craftsman Wilhelm Altendorf is credited with inventing the worlds first sliding table table saw.
Picture 9.
.
1922 American Raymon Devalt is credited with inventing the radial arm saw.

That's it. I probably missed something.
