Leonardo da Vinci



This machine cuts the threads of screws

A bar, the one to have the thread cut into it, would be laid in between the two screws.

As the cranks on the end of the table were turned, the cutting blade would be carried down the two screws, creating an even groove to be used for screws, bolts, etc.

If the features of the face were placed on top of each other, and flipped, they would align perfectly

Leonardo wrote in Italian using a special kind of shorthand that he invented himself

He usually used “mirror writing,” starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left

Only when he was writing something intended for other people did he write in the normal direction
