The automobile, however, far surpassed the relatively modest needs of the sewing machine and bicycle in its need for precision-finished, hardened steel parts. Until confronted with the compelling needs of the automobile, the grinder had been used either for relatively light operations or for finishing components which had acquired their basic shapes upon a lathe.
