Pushing The Way Forward in Conservation Equipment

As engineers and manufactures of our own tools and equipment, we are proud to offer variations and special features on our existing range as well as cater to completely bespoke orders, which is how some of our products make it into our core range.

In fact, this is how we first entered into the world of conservation equipment. In the 1950’s our founder, engineer Jack Willard was asked to fashion a heated spatula for a local conservator which then went on to become the very first commercial heated spatula on the market. The success of this model went on to set the company on its own path into the world of conservation equipment. In our latest blog, we’re showcasing just some of the products that were made possible by bespoke requests that are now available to buy “off-the-shelf”.

The original, and still our most popular, the Heated Spatula Type A is one of the most adaptable models we have available and was the first model to form part of our core range of conservation hand tools. This model’s durability was demonstrated just recently when a customer asked for a repair for his much loved spatula which was made back in 1976 and this was the first time it had made its way back to us for repair.

Spatula Tips

We are often asked to fashion new shaped tips for our heated spatulas which has seen our range of tips, or shoes as they are also known to continually expand. Here are just a few models that have been brought to life through necessity.
