Suiter Swantz IP takes a look back at past inventions and inventors with our Patent of the Day.  

On this day in 1939, Henry Chan Mun was granted U.S. Patent No. 2,165,718 for a NOODLE MAKING MACHINE.

An excerpt from the patent states:

This invention relates to noodle making machines, or the like, and it consists of the combinations, constructions, and arrangements hereinafter to be described and claimed.

Noodle making process requires various steps which heretofore were formed by separate machines. The latter are of considerable size and expensive and are exclusively used by concerns which produce great quantities of noodles daily. A small producer manufactures his supply manually or with the assistance of very primitive implements such as a pan, board, beater, knife, etc. It is the purpose of this invention to produce a small, compact and inexpensive noodle making machine capable of producing twenty-five to fifty pounds of noodles per day.

Another object of my invention is to produce a noodle making machine which mixes the dough, flattens and reduces it to uniform thickness, cuts the strips into predetermined lengths.

Still another object of my invention is to provide a machine of the type described which is simple in construction and operation, durable and efficient for the purpose intended.
