In 1898 the Company founded in Leicester England by Frederick Pollard and Frank Shipman A. A. Jones and Shipman of Leicester makers of machine tools was just a spot in the coal yards. In1905 Alfred Jones joined the business and in 1911 Pollard left to start F. Pollard and Co a rival company. Pollard would become famous for there bearings joining Ramsome and Hoffman.
By 1917 Adverts for Drilling machines and sleeves and sockets were in the trade and 1919 Adverts had Drilling machines and other tools.
By 1920 Jan Issued catalogue's had a full range of machine tools. In September 1920 at an Exhibition of Machine Tools and Engineering at Olympia J&S show cased a large drilling machine for work on burrer forgings for the railways.
In 1934 A range of motor driven machines exhibited at the Machine Tool Exhibition at London Olympia by J&S were the fist of there kind in England.

One runs into things now and again and i knew nothing of J&S. It was not until i found this 1932 press do i look into them. As with all thing OWWM knowledge is King. The PO of this press had no idea of its maker. it was just old and heavy ,two of my Favorited things.
for $125 I called it mine. I will find something for it to do hell i put a pencil sharpener in it. I just had to get it what the hell. With old tools some time you just don't have a need but that never stop me before
