Founded 1933, this company was located in Bristol, right on the border between Tennessee and Virginia. This company made belt sanders.

In about 2005 Oakley's assets were acquired by Colonial Machinery Sales Inc. of Elizabethton, TN. New equipment is still available. They have original documents, historical information on each machine Oakley made, and replacement parts. For more information, contact
