Adverts from Iron & Coal Trades Review

Recommended Posts

Some adverts for Sheffield based businesses from "A Technical Survey of the Iron & Steel Works of Appleby-Frodingham Steel Company", published by Iron & Coal Trades Review, 1955.

Some are to be expected, as the companies are part of The United Steel Companies Limited, but plenty are not.

I have servised equipment at a few of these factories. The company I worked at was started in premises belonging to Flame Hardeners on Bailey Lane. We used to service Flame Hardener's induction Hardeners and their M.D Mr. Conrad Bramhill acted our metalurgist. After he died there was a bit of a split and we moved into our own factory Flame Hardeners still exist. Dormer's drill factory was on Cemetery Road. They also had factories in Worksop and Nottingham making taps & dies. They used to make drills by heating the blanks then passing them through dies that rolled the flutes into the blank. Some pundits claimed this was an inferior method of production and that flutes milled into the blank was better. Dormer was bought by Sandvik, a Swedish company. Eventually they closed the factory and sent the machines to Brazil.
