Bourn & Koch: History of the Bullard Vertical Turret Lathe, Part 1

The Bullard Vertical Turret Lathe was and still is the backbone of many industries, most notably Oil & Gas production. Many of the vertical turret lathes originally built by Bullard are still turning precision parts in thousands of shops around the world. The oldest Bullard VTL that Bourn & Koch has provided parts for dates back to 1912. Though the last Bullard was produced in 1989, these machines will likely be around for decades longer due to the quality of their original craftsmanship and engineering.
