Identifying a piece of BU Equipment

Ian Henderson has been in touch. He runs a small leather goods manufacturing company, based in the old shoemaking town of Maybole in Ayrshire, Scotland.

He has unearthed the machine pictured below during a recent expedition into the dark depths of their warehouse – Can anyone assist Ian and help identify the machine and it’s purpose (please email info@buhistory.org.uk)? It has “No. 2535” stamped onto the nameplate, and “SD 228” cast into the main body.

“My grandfather purchased a number of pieces of equipment in the mid-20th century, as the local shoemaking industry began its decline, and my guess is this is one that he bought but never used!”
