In what year did Charles Proteus Steinmetz fix Ford's Generator for the famed $10,000 invoice?

[Charles Proteus Steinmetz](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Proteus_Steinmetz) is the protagonist of an interesting tale [about fixing a generator at Ford's plant](https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/charles-proteus-steinmetz-the-wizard-of-schenectady-51912022/). Unfortunately the Smithsonian Magazine does not state the year in which the incident happened. Some googling around also did not reveal the date. 1. In what year did it happen? 1. How much the $10,000 invoice would cost in February 2018 figures?
