Because most of us work at a small studio shop -with one or two employees, we forget that most of modern equipment was first used in a factory.
I wanted to look back at the industrial revolution in 1898, when George Paine built a new factory to make internal wooden doors and lower prices; and woodworkers in Oshkosh Wisconsin who attempted to raise their wages
Mr. Paine’s progress ensured the adoption of the power planner, and confirmed long term success depends on the workers wo use their tools every day.
