In 1948, Globe Products Manufacturing Co. was making the "Globe Miller", a milling attachment for a metal lathe that converted it into a Lincoln-style miller. They also made boring bars and holders.

      “Globe Products Mfg. Co., 3380 Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles 34, Calif., announces the purchase of the Machine Tool Division of the Clayton Mfg. Co., Alhambra, Calif., manufacturer of the Clayton boring-bar holder and accessories. In addition to this product, the company's line now includes hand screw machines, bed turrets, cross-slides, vises, millers, end-mill holders, dividing heads, arbors, step blocks, milling dogs, and work-holding fixtures.” (Quote from 1945.)
