Plumb Bob and Case, hand turned solid
I'm re-introducing this after
nearly a quarter century being unavailable. Is a very good example of old-time hand craft turning, lots of hand turned detail to raise the quality, illustrating the trade of 'brass finisher' a
line of work long extinct. Interestingly the handtool that I use to
form the outer bobbin concave flange is stamped H & D ie Holtzapffel
and Deyerlein a partnership that ceased around the same time that
Stephensons 'Rocket' first ran at the Rainhill Trials, one of many of the hand turning tools that came with my 1895 Edward Hines treadle OT lathe I bought when aged eighteen. A quite unique m/c as I see nothing else online look 'so new and beautiful'.
Plumb bob and case now back in production, order as per my no.2 LGE and drop me a note saying its the p/b you require. Tks.
