How did Hall achieve parts interchangeability in 1811? Maching tooling of the time wasn't capable of that level of precision. The answer is actually fairly simple: He made all the parts to fit a set of jigs. If you can't make them to standard, hand-fit them all to standard.

According to the FW video, hand-fitting to jigs is what Hall's predecessors were doing when they claimed to have interchangeable parts. Hall's own lasting contribution was less the rifle and more the machine tools he spent several years inventing so he could manufacture parts that would interchange straight out of the box.
