  • There are two jogging presses in St. Petersburg, Russia : 350 and 500 tons. Located in shipbuilding plants (snsz.ru and bz.ru).
    Manufactured in your factory in the 1950s.
    They are in working condition and perform their function. But it requires major repairs and retrofitting, which will do our company (stanmodern.ru).
    Unfortunately there is no technical documentation and I would be grateful if somebody helped to buy it.
    Thank you for your machines. I hope that the memory of your plant will remain for a long time. Especially with the help of your website….
    Great work…

    Ed: Gregory, thanks for the information.
    It is unlikely that Instruction and Operating manuals for these presses are still available however the original manufacturing drawings are held by the following company: –
    Group Rhodes, Unit 21, Calder Vale Rd, Wakefield WF1 9RD, United Kingdom.
    Their web address is: – https://www.grouprhodes.co.uk/
    You or your colleagues may wish to approach the company. You may indicate that this information was obtained from the Fielding & Platt History website. John B

  • This press is still working!…

    Ed: Thanks Gregory – good to know. 60 + years and still going strong, made to last. Where is the press in operation?
    Does anyone else know of any other Fielding presses supplied to Russia that are still in operation? John B
