From September 1912 Wood Craft

In 1887 the J. T. Case Engine Co. was established to build steam engines. Within a few years they faced increasing competition from gas engines and the company and company officials decided that they would shift their focus and in 1895 re-organized as New Britain Machine Co. Under that name they made steam engines for a time, and over the ensuing years a range of products were introduced, including metalworking machinery (screw machines, boring mills, metal lathes) and woodworking machinery (chain mortisers, copy lathes). The company survived until 1990.

A 1919 catalog, for a machine for making dadoes for window sashes, lists a couple of catalog dates that correspond to patents granted to L. S. Heald of the Heald Machine Co.; we do not know what the relationship was between the two firms.
