From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The other meanings are derivative of this.
And the page has no discussion of actual pins! Pins have a fascinating history, and are an early example of preindustrial mass production.
I did not want to do anything too drastic, since I am new, but I added some information from a book I own, along with a smalll amount from Google, to the "Construction" section. I kept the "in need of attention" notice, so that a more knowledgeable person can add more insight.
The notice was removed, but not by me. I think it's fine the way it is, since the first link is to that primary meaning, namely Pin device. It doesn't say anything about the techniques, important works and why they're important, and the like. The article is, IMHO, a stub that pretends to not be a stub because it has a long list.
