Default Curtis Machine Corporation Jamestown NY

This Curtis has no connection to the Curtiss aircraft company or Glenn Curtiss of Hammondsport NY. The first four attachments are description about the company. It should be noted that their machinery was used for a wide range of woodworking and finishing, and not just propellers. The fifth attachment shows the life of the company until 1954. Having survived through the Great Depression and existing this long should show how good their equipment was. Again, it is not sure how else they may have advertised any of their other machines or how far across the US they may have sold them. Attachment six shows their patents. This also indicates their wood working equipment ingenuity. There are also indications that Curtis Machinery also made propellers. There is no other more detailed information found for propeller manufacturing. It appears, however, they would have capability to fully make propellers of at least perform parts of the process such as rough cutting or finishing.
