    Mauritz Widfors who started what we now know as "Hennes&Mauritz", HM for short. Could that be the Widfors guy you are talking about!?

    The gunshop "Widfors" is on Fredsgatan, not your street...

    Naw, not Widforss...But the Widforss guy moved and started a new store down the street a ways. I don't do gunsmithing, except the occasional ljuddampare job.

    I do prototypes, fine-tuned welding jobs, wrought iron sometimes...Fiddler & Turner, I call myself.

    I know Eli Whitney also invented the cotton gin. Add a little vermouth and you get a really really dry martini!

    Honorأ© Blanc’s !! I found it on the wonderful WWW!!

    Also Chrisofer Polehem here in sweden used interchangeable parts before Eli did. Polhem is worth a book of his own!

    started a topic Eli Whitney

    Eli Whitney

    I was talking about Eli Whitney the other day. I know it's credited to him the invention of Interchangeability of gun parts. But what was the name of that Frenchman who inspired him. I think the name started with a B! He was an officer, trained at Westpoint I think....or am I completley loopey!
Working...
