His machine for cutting screw threads incorporated a slide-rest, with a heavy carriage supported on three rollers Afterwards, his machine was operated by water power at Pawtucket Falls, RI. Wilson was a machinist who also produced iron forgings and castings for the cotton industry industry there, such as Slater's Mill.
