Interchangeable parts are identical, machine-made parts for a tool or instrument. Eli Whitney used this concept to make muskets for the army. Before interchangeable parts, individual gunsmiths would make the parts for muskets. If the part broke it was very difficult to replace, because the parts were handmade. Now the parts could be replaced quickly because all parts for guns could be made identically. This concept was soon adapted by manufacturers for all sorts of other goods.
