Here is some history that bears repeating - or at least re-reading. So take a few minutes to give it up for a long-gone Brit named Henry Maudslay
(August 22, 1771 - February 14, 1831) - also known as "A Founding Father of Machine Tool Technology." 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.
