In 1921 Herbert Hunt & Sons of Old Trafford, Manchester, introduced a new machine for sharpening twist drills and thinning the web (an operation that should be performed after a drill bit has been sharpened several times). These machines were very successful and sold well for at least three decades. The Hunt drill sharpening machines were also badged and sold by Jones & Shipman, Alfred Herbert and others.
