Screw pointing and threading machine patent

In 1852, Cullen Whipple, of Providence, R.I., patented his "Mechanism for Pointing and Threading Screw-Blanks in the Same Machine" (U.S. No. 9477). His new design incorporated additional cutters in the same threading machine he had patented on 18 Aug 1842 (No. 2754, reissued 5 Mar 1850). Before machines provided a point on screws, they had blunt ends, and it was necessary to drill a starter hole. In Oct 1840, he was one of ten incorporators of The New England Screw Co. After his original thread-cutting machine, he invented another for shaving the heads of screws (patented 6 Apr 1843) and one for removing the burs left in cutting the slots in the heads (patented 19 Apr 1843). He patented seven other screw-manufacturing devices.«

My friend asked me...

My friend asked me, "Why are you getting a divorce?"
I responded, "My wife wasn't home the entire night and in the morning she said she spent the night at her sister's house."
He said, "So?"
And I responded, "She's lying. I spent the night at her sister's house!"
