  • Wadkin by Test Number

    Any of you who visit the Australian forum may be familiar with the “Extreme Wadkinitus” thread. When that thread was started, that forum allowed unlimited editing. Unfortunately in December 2016 the editing time was reduced to 24 hours, which made the thread almost untenable due to the need to repost the list, with almost every additional tag.

    I’'ll start this thread with the tags in Camozy’'s “Wadkin & Co. and Early Wadkin Ltd Machine Tags” thread and build it from there.

    I’'ll try to include a tag photo with every test number, and where I can’'t I'’ll list the tag in italics.

    The thread is for Wadkin & Co. and Wadkin Ltd machines manufactured at Wadkin's Green Lane works. Wadkin-Bursgreen tags are not included, as they use a differing system (and often don'’t have test numbers).

    Please feel free to post the tags of your machines, either in the list or as a separate posting – and I’'ll keep the list updated frequently.

    Additions in bold. Test number, followed by Model & Serial number, then country of residence (where known)...

            Thanks Mike.

            Can I ask if the RM came from Canada?

              Yes, it originally did. As from what I know it was purchased by Arthur Fuege from a shop in Canada. He then sold it to an acquaintance of mine and machinery collector out here in California. I then traded for the RM. It is a long term project for me. It came to me with non original 550 volt Canadian GE motors which I am in the process of swapping out for 220 volt motors. Have already found a good motor for the cutter head but am still looking for a good 220 volt motor for the feed works. When I got it there were no knives in it. I have since put a new set of knives in it and replaced a couple of the cutter block studs that I got from Jack. I have used the jointer portion several times to flatten large panels. It is a joy to use.

              Mike

                      Sixth update. I'm trying to add ~15 machines per post (and expect to reach nearly 300 machines before I exhaust my stored tag photos). Only 14 machines this post as I found another double-up.

                        Re: Wadkin by Test Number

                        When looking at the RB machine Numbers jump quite high 1939 1940. Almost double and it appears we have some Wadkin co tags During Wadkin LTD. I also notice the third letter designation coming in and I’m wondering if the 105 count starts on this date. It would certainly account for the jump in numbers and the one machine Allison found below 105 . Just an observation and thought.

                          Yeah, it's like they had old stock of RBs being tested (and presumably sold) through to 1938. But did they really sell RB 194 to 417 (224 machines) all in that one year? I doubt it - there's some else going on there (but no clues as to what).

                          Just out of interest radial arm saw CK 349, test 5637, has a Wadkin & Co. Serial & Test tag, but a Manufactured by Wadkin Ltd tag on the other side - suggesting test numbers around 5637 date to around 1936.

                          Cheers, Vann.

                            I’ve seen that on the cc tag arrangement were both company and limited we’re on the same machine but I believe that was because of the patent number on one of the tags .
