Remarks                                 :

The number “A50” comes from the 1889 Hawksley catalogue, where it is called the “Hawksley’s Patent “Clip” Cartridge Turnover”

It is sometimes difficult to decide whether it is a A50, a A44 or a AA44. If possible it is mentioned at this place.


This is the A50 NP ( Nickel plated)


This is a “cradle” species. The barrel lies in a kind of cradle. Not all of these Hawksley tools have this construction.


There is quite some variation in the top of the screw of the table clamp. This one is round and connected to the screw by a screw. Some tops are triangle shaped, some square.
