Daniel Treadwell

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Daniel Treadwell was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts back in 1791. I can’t find anything else on him until 1818, so let’s start from there for this history lesson. His first invention was a machine used for making wooden screws in 1819, during that same year he devised a new form of a printing press.

During the same year he went to England where he conceived the idea of a power press. When he returned to the States he used that press to print sheets of paper, being the first on this continent to be used other than hand power. In 1822, he co-founded the Boston Journal of Philosophy and the Arts. In 1825 the city of Boston hired him to make a survey for the introduction of water. In 1826, he devised a system of turnouts for railway transportation on a single track.

I’m not finished, in 1829, he invented the first successful machine for spinning hemp for ropes. The U.S. Navy bought those ropes from him for a long time. In 1835, he perfected a method for making cannons from wrought iron and steel. From 1834-1845 he was a professor at Harvard University. Until tomorrow give someone the free gift of a smile
