Morris Lathe, 1921

From Practical machinist website comes this info;
The book "American Lathe Builders 1810-1910" by Kenneth L. Cope states the following: ...Founded by John B. Morris in 1891, the firm began making machine tools when it bought the radial drill business of Roos and Mill about 1906...

...lathe production began in 1908 with a 16" geared head and feed lathe designed by William L. Schellenbach for use with the new high speed steel cutting tools... 1909 a cone head version, also designed by Schellenbach, was offered in 14", 16" and 18" sizes. The company reorganized as the John B. Morris Machine Tool Company Co. in 1910..

The company became part of the Associated Foundries of Cincinnati but there does not seem to be much more info available on the fate of the company.
