Since Bell had a curiosity of sounds and vibrations he made numerous inventions like the de-husker, that could husk corn efficiently. A few years later he moved to London to live with his strict grandfather who taught him science. Soon after, he accepted a job for being a teacher to the deaf and fell in love with his student. Mabel was the girl that he loved but during that time he had to create his invention, so he did not spend a lot of time with her. While Alex was thinking about how his device would work he asked the help of Thomas Watson, a man who worked at an electrical shop, to be his partner.
He made a laboratory in his parent’s basement where he did some science experiments. As a young man, he worked hard selling newspapers on the railroad.

The issue of weight must have haunted Edison because he further revised the Engraving Pen doing away with the battery, which would seem giant by today’s standards, and inventing The Perforating Pen (May 7th 1878) using a treadle mechanism powered by the operator’s foot much the same as a sewing machine or early dentist’s drill, and finally the Edison Pneumatic Stencil Pen (Jun. 25th 1878) using air pressure, gas or a liquid that could turn a fan system and drive the needle bar making the machine lighter and easier to use than the previous incarnations.
