  6. 6. His Invention http://player.discoveryeducation.com/index.cfm?guidAssetId=A2F62B20-D7E4-44B9-8329-88896AC31C35&blnFromSearch=1&productcode=US Eli Whitney is the one who made the cotton gin. He made several before he made one that work. And the Cotton Gin is whatmade the slaves job much easier.This machine would take place of the Slaves job and israther neat, actually. You put the cotton in the machine & it separates the cotton and the seeds and disposes the seeds and leaves a deformed ball of clean cotton. Nettrekker.com/eliwhitney/cottongin
  7. 7. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http:// upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c3/Eli’’ Other Inventions http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.history.com/images _ Eli Whitney made many other inventions besides the cotton gin. Some examples are:•Interchangeable Parts (When one part of a machine is broken, you can put another part in its place that isnt the same.)•Prototype Gunlocks (Created for muskets and was told by President Adams to make 15000 muskets.) •Milling Machine (Modified lathe that turns out irregularly shaped parts. Without the milling machine, it is difficult to see how standardized parts could ever have been invented.) Nettrekker.com/eliwhitney/inventions/interchaneable parts/prototype/millingmachine
