"Vintage Machinery" entry for London, Berry & Orton
"Vintage Machinery" entry for Richards, London & Kelley
Inventor Thorne was a partner in Richards, Thorne & Co., which established The Atlantic Works in Philadelphia in 1860, and operated it until William S. Kelley bought out Thorne in July of 1870. Interestingly, Kelley is a witness on this patent. After a couple more steps, the owner of The Atlantic Works was London, Berry & Orton; the other witness on this patent was a partner in the latter incarnation.

This invention was used in conjunction with patent 114,229 to create a portable radial drill, used for drilling rivet holes in boiler plates, that was made by Thorne & De Haven. The product was obviously successful as within three years they had 40 employees based primarily on that one product.
