Note: invented a hair-cutting machine, which exploded
Needles was an inventor, but not necessarily a very competent one. He earned his diploma from a mail-order institution (correspondence course), which apparently never taught him anything about safety.
Needles did manage to invent something - a hair-cutting machine. But his invention yielded mixed results - to comical effect. The machine he invented exploded when he first tried to use it.
In his second published adventure, Needles tried to invent a way to grow hair on his head.
