Maryland Biscuit Worker

Patented on December 7, 1880, Denton, Maryland local James Ignatius Lednum’s “Kneading Machine” was advertised in the Denton Journal as a way for biscuit workers to make biscuits more quickly. This machine was a roller mounted on a slab of hardwood or marble that was fed biscuit dough as the roller turned to beat and process the dough.
