Essay: Henry Hindley (circa 1700 - 1771), can be considered one of the greatest of York and Yorkshire clockmakers, and remains one of the most celebrated inventors and maker of scientific instruments. He invented a screw-cutting lathe, a fusee-cutting engine and an improved wheel-cutting engine and made one of the first dividing engines, for the construction of accurately-graduated arcs on scientific instruments
