This is how I found Mad Modder,  I should have posted earlier.

  I used to build  Alexander Engravers  and I may have built that one, is there a date on the plate?

One of my first jobs was fitting the name plates, it was a nightmare for a beginner like me,    the drill would sometimes wander,  or cut oversize, or sometimes the PK drive screws would break.

The "motling"   looks like mine but we were actually encourage to keep it uniform.


If I was younger I would have loved to do those CNC conversions.

Hi Timby,

Sadly there's no serial number plate only a Metropolitan Vickers plant number 14975. I have another but that's also lacking the serial number plate. I bought the two for 100. The one I converted to CNC had no noticeable wear on the slides.

Hi Philf,

Thank for getting back to me,  I went along to see the original  factory  last year and I found it had recently been demolished.
