Castle Bromwich Aeroplane Factory. Machine shop occupying a section of “D” Block.
I am the proud owner of one of these Capstan lathes from the original machine shop at Castle Bromwich. It is a belt driven Herbert no. 2s and after its purchase from the Castle Bromwich factory it was used by a small Engineering Company in Perry Bar until I purchased it around 2003 as the company was closing due to the owners retirement. What a beautiful machine it is but I never did get to find out what components it turned out !
