What happened to Bellmore-Johnson Tool Co. ?

Yes, they are out of business? The parts were they sold to a compnay? The Manufacturing Tools and jigs?

Or have they been stored in a garage or starage locker?

Just wondering if anyone knows the story of Mr. Richard Care owner of the Bellmore Johnson Co .

 

Cheers

Tuner/Joe,

At the end of that newspaper article, it lists the authors contact info: Jim Shelton can be reached at (203) 789-5664 or [email protected].

Might be worth a try.

Good luck.

Bill
