Many thanks to Steve who has been very accommodating in allowing me to make this enquiry that isn't specifically about lathes.
I am the creator and administrator of www.fabbeatlesaddict.com
and I'm currently writing articles for vinyl collectors. One of these articles
concentrates on vinyl production in the 1960's at the EMI pressing plant in Hayes, UK. I've already researched and written about recording
and mastering at Abbey Road with lots of references to Scully Lathes and the master cutting legend, Harry Moss. The rather wonderful staff at
Abbey Road were able to assist me with this. However, moving on to writing about production has proven to be a veritable minefield with my
research hitting a wall of either vague or ambiguous information.
I specifically need to know about pressing machines of the era and in particular how STAMPER plates were fitted to the moulds. I am looking for
images, drawings, schematics or even some really nice written descriptions. If anyone can point me in the right direction or assist me in any way to answer
this question it would be most appreciated.
Many thanks guys.
