Engravings of machinery made at Bodley’s

When Bodley’s factory closed, a series of engraved blocks used by the firm to advertise their products was given to our museum, among them the three examples shown wrapped in illustrated paper bound with string here. The two on the right show a particular specialism of the firm: the casting of iron gear-wheels used to power machinery. The other device shown was a machine which converted rapid machine in steadier but more powerful motion.
