  • Good day! I ‘m looking for the manual operation of the machine Fielding & Platt DDI 120 tons. With whom I can consult the machine operation?

  • Hi John!  In this photo Tony Barton is working on the DDI machine in the new fitting shop. I went to Luxfer with John Little around 1973/4 to do some small modifications over a couple of days on this press. Regrettably, both Tony and John are no longer with us. Many years later whilst I was working as a maintenance fitter at Contract Chemicals in the Bristol Road I got to know a young man named Phil Little and he told me that he had served his time at F&P and had done a lot of work on later DDI presses. Phil’s dad was Terry Little who was also at F&P, working as an electrician.   Chippy Aston.
