Janvier Reducing Machine


Book Summary

Three photographs of the Janvier reducing machine used in the August Frank shop in Philadelphia, c. 1900. The fourth photograph is a pantograph, possibly Model 1-G, made by the George Gorton Machine Co., Racine, WI. This type of pantograph was made to cut molds for cast ornaments. In this case, an original is at lower right and the mold being cut is at left. The spring balanced tracing point has been removed from the chuck to better show the equipment.

August Frank was a manufacturer of medals. Photographs courtesy of Rebekah Stafford.
