No. 3 Rapid Corner Stitching Machine

I’d like to thank Helen Newson for sending the BU History Group copies of the third and fourth editions of the BU ‘List of Parts and Instructions’ (1948 and 1952) as used by her dad when working on and maintaining the No. 3 at the Gla-Rev Smith company at Martlesham – makers of leather cases.

They are incredible – illustrating and listing every part used in these brilliant machines. Like a giant, sophisticated Meccano set. If anyone would like to view them just let me know. Cheers.
