McKaig Drop Forge Co.


McKaig Drop Forge Co. (Buffalo, NY) - We have not found the formation announcement for this company.  In 6/11/1918 edition of Iron Age, the move of the C & H Drop Forge Co. from Buffalo to Newark, NJ is announced.  The article further states C & H was formerly known as McKaig Drop Forge Co., and is now owned by Clucker-Hixson Co. of NYC.

Interestingly, we find this company beginning in 1912, advertising the Sure-Cutter Pliers patented by Mr. McKaig.  A 1921 Engineering Directory lists McKaig Drop Forge (wrenches) and McKaig-Hatch (forgings & pliers).
