The machine's true origins are unknown, and it could have been built in-house, or bought in from one of the many small jobbing engineering companies in the area to the north and east of Derby. perhaps from Portass in Sheffield - or even from Mr. Freddie Coals in Woodford Avenue, Southend Road (just off London's North Circular Road) - a maker of various lathes including those branded Granville and Corbett's.
Although production dates are not known, as competing machines were advertised into the 1960s a date between then and as early as the 1930s would be a possibility.
