Crimson Peak digger machine: This little machine had many functions that had to be packed into a small space, I machined the all the parts, spoked wheels etc from brass, copper, aluminum and steel. The rivet pattern was staggered so I had to make a special tool for that.Here's a photo of the digger "naked "when it was in progress.... Keith Thompson's intricate drawings were my guide.... #steamdigger #machinework #machinist #haxanthrobo #crimsonpeak #GuillermoDelToro #tomhiddleston #steampunk #miawasikowska #jessikachastain #thomaskuntzsculptor #mechanicalanimation #patentmodel #horology #steam #micromechanics
And the reason we went was to see the collection of patent models on display in the library! Which were amazing yet hard to properly document without an appointment to take them out of the cases. And many were on loan to Japan. These need to be shared. They are miniature specimens of ingenuity. #patentmodel #hagleymuseumandlibrary #midmod #eidupont #eidupontdenemoursandcompany #ingenuity

Kochs Barber supply began in 1877, which was when this patent was submitted, but patent was not granted till 1880...! #barberchairpatentmodel #barberchairs #patentmodel #theokochsbarberchair #barberchairpatents

A "crosshead" is an important device effecting the piston rod and cylinder on steam locomotives. The early design wore out quickly and required regular replacement of crossheads, piston rods, and drivers. In 1918, Theodore Rogatchoff submitted this "Adjustable Cross Head" model to the U.S. Patent Office. In 1920, the B&O began to test this model on the "Mikado" type engines with dramatic success. This patent model is one of two owned by Rogatchoff in the museum collection. #artifact #history #smallobjectscollection #borailroad #borailroadmuseum #patentmodel #invention
Today we installed a new exhibit in our auditorium windows. It is all about patent models! We have lots in our collection from many of Worcester's great inventors. This one is an 1870s Crompton Loom. George Crompton submitted many inventions to the U.S. Patent office, some new and others had improvements to already existing designs. This one was a new design. #worcesterma #history #newengland #worcester #patent #patentmodel #loom #inventions #innovation #ideas #crompton #boomerang
