  • I had the pleasure of maintaining this machine for 13 years when it was installed at Radiator and Tinning Pvt. Ltd., in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe where I completed my apprenticeship as a Fitter machinist. It was used to manufacture copper tube and hollow brass extrusions.

    Ed: Alistair, many thanks for your contribution. My records show it was moved to Bulawayo around 1982. I wonder if anyone can say whether it is still in production? John B
