FC: Interchangeable parts by Grayci Kangas-Olson & Kate Chell
1: INTRO Eli Whitney invented Interchangeable parts. When the Government ordered 10,000 muskets from him, he got the idea to make the musket with parts the were interchangeable The idea for the parts were from his original invention, the cotton gin
2: *Because the rest of the world was getting more land and they wanted to expand to to grow bigger. | Through There Eyes: *They viewed the world as behind, most were still trying to find land and get it not working on inventions like the us was doing.
3: *They though it was a good idea because they could have more jobs and cheaper costs for goods. | *They had to have special training to work on parts and when they invented the interchange part people did not have to have as much training to work in the field.
4: Cause and Effect: *The government ordered 10,000 muskets and instead of hand crafting each by hand, Eli Whitney came up with the idea of interchangeable parts for easy repairs. | *Eli Whitney invented the Interchangeable parts because the government ordered 10,000 muskets and he proposed the idea instead of making each musket by hand.
5: *Interchangeable parts helped the government because their soldiers could easily fix their muskets without having to send it into someone who would have to fix the entire musket. | *The people who really didn't like the interchangeable parts make and sold were the people who were blacksmiths or people who hand crafted guns themselves. They would go out of business because factories were taking their place.
6: *The use of interchangeable parts was an easy way for people to repair their muskets for cheap. People wouldn't have to bring in their musket to a blacksmith any more because they could do the repairs themselves. | Turning Points:
7: *Thanks to the interchangeable parts, people now a days can buy a gun and if they break it, they don't have to bring it into a blacksmith and pay lots of money for the repair. Now they can buy the parts they need for a lot cheaper.
8: Change and Continuity: *Now the interchangeable parts are better and more advanced. They have been improved from the look and how accurate guns can be. they are also used in different models of guns. *They are still a lot cheaper than bringing the whole gun in to get repaired and you can still buy individual parts for a repair.
9: *The people who have not benefited from the invention are people who appose war and hunting along with people who work on gun repairs. | *The people who have benefited from the invention are people who hunt or people who are fighting in the war. The government doesn't have to pay as much to repair broken guns. Same for people who hunt.
10: Using the Past: *They are still used so that you don't have to by new things every time something brakes. thing are a lot cheaper now. It is more complex then it was back then. | *They use different parts and all the designs are different.
11: *This invention has told us about the history saying that we did grow into not just having one person make different parts every time.
