Address (1949 Popular Mechanics): 235 Richmond Ave, Ottumwa, Iowa.

Founded 1931 to make lathe and machine tool accessories. Almost from the beginning they made a small wood-turning lathe, although sales were small. Became very successful making metalworking lathes, especially during the war years. Purchased by Atlas Press Co. in 1950. In 1969, Atlas Press renamed itself to Clausing Corp. to take advantage of Clausing's excellent brand equity.
