On This Day

By Princessa

Inventor Benjamin Franklin, who was always interested in scientific studies, devised a means of correcting the excessive smoking of chimneys by inventing the Franklin Stove in 1744. This stove threw more heat with less fuel. The Franklin Stove, also known as the circulating stove, was designed with a more advanced metallurgy (extraction of metal). Metallography is the study of the physical and chemical behaviors of metallic elements and their mixtures, called alloys.
