The firm manufactured scleroscopes for testing hardness of metals. The original models, made for decades, have a glass tube. They were replaced by the models C and D which are all-metal with a dial, and finally an early electronic version. Apparently Instron Corp. owns the rights to Shore products, but we have been unable to learn details.
