The article "Henry Maudslay" appeared in the May 2015 issue of Gear Technology.
Here is some history that bears repeating - or at least re-reading.

You might also consider him an early leader in inspection, as he also invented the first bench micrometer capable of measuring to one ten-thousandth of an inch.
