In about the late 1940s to mid-1950s this awkwardly-named company made a buffer-grinder arbor, which they called a "hobby lathe".

Information Sources

  • The company made a patent combination wrench and hammer. We have also seen a small block plane and a coping saw from this maker.
  • From 1948 through 1954, this company ran ads in Popular Mechanics for a 1/4" to 1/2" drill converter. It consisted of a drill chuck and a 5:1 gearbox.
  • We have also seen a small stamped steel body, hand crank grinder labeled "Hobby Grinder".
  • Popular Mechanics May 1949 contains an ad for the new power drill press.
