...the plain facts:

  • In 1841 the British inventor and engineer Joseph Whitworth devised a standard for screw threads with a fixed angle of 55°. This was adopted by many railway companies in the UK and soon became a British Standard (BSW) and used throughout the British Empire and many parts of the world

  • Whitworth also devised the ‘Thou’ (Thousandths of an inch) system of measure, until the 1850s a 64th (of an inch) was considered ‘fine’ engineering however industrial precision demanded more. With Feller Guages this made a massive contribution to consistent precision engineering and paved the way for Britian’s industrial dominance from the late 1850s through to the 20th century
