Makes Own False Teeth of Stainless Steel (Oct, 1937)
This guy really should be inducted into the Maker hall of fame. If that doesn’t exist, they should create one. Just for him.
Makes Own False Teeth of Stainless Steel
From stainless steel, a Wilmington, Calif., carpenter has made himself a complete set of unbreakable artificial teeth. Buying a block of the alloy, he shaped each tooth individually with the aid of a hack saw and file. Then he vulcanized them into a homemade mounting of rubber, obtaining the material from a dental-supply house and making his own mouth impressions with paraffin. For molding purposes he employed plaster of Paris in electric outlet boxes.
