This little-known company, also known as AMMCO (and not to be confused with another, unrelated, AMMCO, Automotive Maintenance Machinery Co.) was incorporated in 1930. The company survived until at least 1983 but it appears that in their later years there were strictly a reseller of woodworking machinery and supplies.
We have seen a couple of horizontal boring machines that have the name "Toby" cast into the label along with this company's name.
