    Whenever you complete an Almanac by collecting all four pages, you earn a new crafting recipe for a Ben Franklin invention.

    To craft an invention, use the accounting book - located in any general store or on the first floor of your manor - and go to the Crafting menu. Scroll down to the Inventions category and you will see all of the invention recipes that you have. Each invention requires specific artisans at a cetain level (who settle during homestead missions, and also level up by doing more homestead missions) and some amount of raw materials that can either be purchased in the Stockpile menu or crafted out of other materials.

    The first one that I was able to create was the Kite & Key, which requires your tailor to be level 2. It also requires the linsey-woolsey material, which is created from flax. You are able to purchase flax from your farmers once you complete their pig-herding homestead mission.

    You will eventually need to craft all of the Franklin inventions to get to 100% completion in the game.

    Weezleram@AlphaMale, you can always check the flag submissions for a game to see the reasoning behind the flags.

    "buggy, i completed the requirements for both these achievements on my profile and they unlocked just fine. however, i signed on a different profile that had done niether and both achievements unlocked on that account."
    - moogless, from the flag submissions

    Armstrong x360a@Weezleram - Is it still possible see these submissions? I can't find a way to see the reasoning anywhere on the page. Thanks in advance.

    EarthboundXSo I only have two left to craft, but it's saying "Inventory Full" when I try, and it won't let me.

    I still need to craft the Electrostatic Generator, and the Glass Armonica. I recall it said this before earlier in the game, but it eventually went away, can I only craft certain inventions after a certain memory sequence? I just started 10.

    OK figured it out, for some reason the game seems to have an inventory limit, either for the stockpile, or for Conner. Even though you aren't going to be carrying the Inventions, it still checks against that limit when you try to craft one.

    So I sold some things and then it let me craft them. Got scared for a second after, because I forgot there wasn't an achievement for crafting all of them, and I thought it glitched, haha.

    To make this really easy, make sure you did most of the homestead missions and try to get as many almanacs because they contain different recipes.
    The reason why is because the more missions you finish, the more items you have available to purchase for the ingredients.
    Now go to the Manor, open the accounting book and look for anything under the CRAFTING menu for any item that starts with FRANKLIN.
    After you search for which item you want, you can buy any ingredients from the STOCKPILE menu.
    Now simply create it and POP goes 10G

    Here's also a video by someone that explains it very well.
