Sargent & Company of New Haven, Conn., produced and sold planes for an eighty year period from 1884 to 1964. They had a large production capability and made builder's hardware, locks, and other hand tools, for both carpenters and mechanics. Joseph Bradford Sargent was the impetus behind the company. He was born in 1822 in Leicester, Mass. and went to work for his father in the J.D.Sargent & Company business. His father manufactured hand cards, these were used to straighten cotton or wool fibers prior to the spinning process in the many textile mills in New England. Starting at the bottom as a factory worker at the age of 16, he worked in a dry goods business in Boston, Mass., became a partner with his brother Harry in a Georgia general store, and then took over his father's business in 1849
