Hope this is what you want.  First thing came to mind was a "wooden" screw.

Re: Wood screw history

I know they started making the screws right before they started using them. That was amazing too, to be in that order, for  the wood workers had been on strike for weeks wanting someone to come up with something, anything to help move the industry along.

  Well things got off to a good start when the workers told the owners to go screw themselves if they didn't come up with something to help the assembly line move a little faster. And, well, the owners took the suggestion and low and behold we been screwing screws ever since.

   I think all this started up in the mountains around Wolf Creek Pass on a Monday morning about sunset.....

The next thing in line was the time clock which really made things slow down for that's all the hired hands could do was watch the clock....

 

Just think without the intern-net I would not have known any of this and all you guys would still be a sleep.

Things seem to be getting a little twisted here.
