I’ve got a lot of the Archdale factory pics. Founded in 1868 by James Archdale, by 1917 the Company was making (or had made, like most of its competitors) a wide variety of machine tools, including drills, milling machine, shapers, planers ,borers, lathes, hand and power presses and the usual miscellany of general engineering equipment such as surface plates and cutters. They could also set up manufacturing plants, make one-off machine tools and undertake commissions to develop patents and improvements for other makers
