Tuttell had a short but productive career as a mathematical instrument-maker at the turn of the 18th century. Mathematical instruments included drawing instruments, rules, surveying instruments, navigational instruments, timekeepers and models such as globes and armillary spheres, all pictured here. Soon after this the models used for demonstration were referred to as philosophical instruments, leaving mathematical to mean instruments used in trade by surveyors, navigators, excise men, etc.
