Comptometer (adding machine) operators thru-out America and tens of thousands who punch typewriters would probably like to to say thank you to Fred Niemann, if they knew him. Fred Niemann was an inventor for the Felt & Tarrant Manufacturing company, which makes comptometer adding-calculating machines.
He thought up the automatic ribbon reverse, the first device ever made which would automatically start the ribbon spool of a typewriter operating in the opposite direction. He developed a way to puncture proof a tire by sending fluid into the inner tube of an automobile tire. he also developed different types of fire extinguishers. His automatic potatoe slicer was a flop.
His hobby in fishing gave the nation's fishermen a swimming minnow. His father Adolph Niemann was a cabinet maker and taught his son to use tools. When he was 12 years old he procured his first job as an electrician's helper in a department store. When he was 14 he went to work for Felt & Tarrant Manufacturing company, that was in 1892.
