Finishing==damaskeening, steel work, polishing--take a 21J 72 apart and see for your self--they are as nice underneath as on top; then adjusting........and some of the clowns brag about early Howards! Rolling Eyes Laughing

20s and 60KW are the same except for the plate size.

The "62" model was , if I remember, a Roy Ehrhardt creation.

Interesting. I had always thought that the Nashua division was experimental, not just a high-end fabrication unit; more like modern day Tesla, than Lexus. Choose your own comparison companies, but anyway, experimental.

Nashua was a company, Nashua, NH, went broke after a small production of 2 grades; employees went back to AWCo who bought unfinished mov'ts which were finished, signed as AWCo products.

Right, and as I remember, when the Nashua core broke away from the Waltham enterprise, they were set on coming up with something no else had done - at least as well, right? High quality, better design, and fully automated. What's the best source for Nashua history? Crossman? Old NAWCC bulletins?

Also, the dial guy, Josh Moorhouse, got dragged along by the original Nashua escapees. They must have been desperate. Moorhouse wasn't very old. 25? Maybe that was old enough to know a lot back then. I don't know.

As the juror said in Raising Arizona, "Well, okay then!"
