J. Wiss & Sons: U.S. Patents

I was able to find 31 patents assigned to J Wiss. Also included below are the Button-Hole Cutter for leather that Wiss sold into the 1940s. And the Kyle orange pruner that Wiss made for decades. And an interesting roller shears that ATT used to press down telegrams. Also see numerous patents assigned to Samuel Briskman: Pinking Shear Patents. There are probably more that I haven't found, especially 19th century patents. The thumbnails link to PDF files of the patents.
