Found Gartliston Works, Glenboig

Following consultation with Moses Jenkins, HS,  it is believed that this was another Hurll product  manufactured for the overseas market and marked with the customers name. Woodison is very likely E J Woodison Company, Detroit, Michigan – I will go with this theory unless shown otherwise!

E. J. Woodison Company, one of the founding members of FEMA – The Foundry Equipment Manufacturers Association. This company was very involved in the beginnings of the Detroit auto industry and was supplier to the several foundries that were developed to support this new industry. Products included such items as: fire brick, stove specialties, molders’ riddles and shovels, flasks, sprayers for blacking cores and molds, pouring devices, crucible tongs, coal barrows, skids, hammer core machines, shakers, sand mixers, hoists, metal band saw machines, melting furnaces, cleaning and exhaust mills, sand blasters, molding machines, much more.
