If you have information to add to this entry, please contact the Site Historian.

Master Manufacturing Co. made indexing tables as well as an indexing head for a lathe. We have also seen the name Master Machine Tools, Inc., also of Hutchinson, KS, which seems to be a later incarnation of the same business.
