Last week I received this email from John Scungio of Providence, Rhode Island:
I read your article about the Janvier reducing machines. I am
liquidating my family business, Angelo DiMaria Inc.(est 1928). We have
a nice machine that I don't know how to market.
I suggested starting with an E-Sylum ad, which appears elsewhere in this issue. I wrote:
If anyone would know about and be interested in a Janvier machine, it would be one of my readers or one of their friends.
We made jewelry parts, shoe ornaments, western saddle ornaments, military insignia and police badges. We did the die cutting, hubbing and pantographing for our metal stamping shop. At the high water mark (around 1989-'90) we had 50 employees.
Here are some of the earlier E-Sylum articles discussing these machines.
