"The development of industry on an extensive scale." The process that would eventually transform all of Europe. Included: dramatic population increase, steam driven machinery to increase output, factories to concentrate labor forces, and major production of cotton goods due to lightness and versatility. Sparked the industrial revolution.
Invented in 1733 by Englishman John Kay. Opperated by weavers puuling a chord enabling them to "throw" yarn across the loom rather than draw it back and forth by hand. Came into widespread use in 1760 and caused cloth to be woven quicker than thread could be spun.
A power-driven spinning machine introduced in the 1760's that increased the output of thread to be woven. (Could spin several threads at once.) Created to keep up with the production ability caused by the flying shuttle.
A device invented in the 1760's which used water power from running streams to drive spinning wheels.
(AKA putting out or cottage system.) Early industrial labor system in which workers produced goods at home.
