lived in Middletown, Conn. Even as a boy he was very ingenious; he was at first
in the patent leather business and spent the years from 1830 to 1835 experiment-
ing in the making of India rubber goods. August 31, 1836, a patent was granted
to him for his process of applying rubber to cloth and other articles without the
use of a solvent. Formerly it required to dissolve a pound of crude rubber, a
gallon or more of spirits of turpentine or other suitable solvent, costing more than
$.50 a gallon. By the use of Mr. Chaffee's machinery all solvents were rendered
iinnecessary, the rubber being reduced to a paste. This process rendered the
goods more durable and reduced their market price, labor, time and material,
being saved and the cost of the manufacture being reduced one-half.
