Percival Aircraft Ltd. have recently adopted a most interesting sytem for the economical manufacture of small part press tools. The material used is the K.M. Alloy low melting‐point alloy and by its use the tool room work on punches and dies has been drastically cut. The method is not entirely original, but it is still comparatively little used.
