Patterns from Bodley’s

Patterns from 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 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 a rapid machine to steadier but more powerful motion.
