Antique Mahogany Dining Room Table - "joseph Fitter" For Sale
A man by the name of Samuel Hawkins applied for a patent on a screw expander (English Patent# 1430) on June 6th, 1861. Presumably, Mr. Hawkins either died or retired because his business was taken over by young machinist named Joseph Fitter (b. 1842) in 1864. Based on an advertisement for these screw expanders it is presumed that Mr. Hawkin's went into business in 1846.At any rate, Joseph Fitter operated a machinist shop where he produced screw expanders as well as screw expanders for piano stools and other applications at 210 Cheapside, Birmingham England by the name of Britannia Works.
