Providence, RI


Directory of American Toolmakers (1999) includes the following information on Fuller.

Joseph Fuller (b. 1746 d. 1822) worked from 1773 - 1808.  His mark is JO FULLER.

Pollack (4th Edition) notes "In later years when he adopted the standard 9 1/2 length, his chamfers became rounded and the fluting disappeared.  The wood he used evolved from yellow birch to beech with a few maple examples, and his wedge profiles became relieved after his early period then rounded."
