Accoridng to Wikipedia, Atkins Saws was best known for making handsaws, circular sawblades and bandsaw blades, but they also made grinders and cooperage machinery. Elias C. Atkins started business under his own name in 1855. The following year he moved from Cleveland, OH, to Indianapolis, and formed a partnership with W. Knippenberg. An 1858 ad shows that he had licensed and manufactured patented designs for muley saws and crosscut saws. The partnership incorporated as "E. C. Atkins & Co." in 1885. It lasted until at least 1944. As far back as 1860, Elias C. Atkins received patents for sawblades and for machines for manufacturing saws.
