Cruisers wood screws

Postby a j r » Sat Jan 28, 2006 3:33 pm

Have recently been digging thru 1960s issues of "The Boating Industry," a magazine for the trade. Very interesting articles and advertisements.

Found an ad from a fastener company proudly proclaiming that Cruisers, Inc. of Oconto, WI was using their company's "Universal Satellite Brass" screws to build their boats! This was in the January 1964 issue. The company was Universal Screw Company of Evanston, Illinois. Who knows if they are still around.

Just an interesting tid bit!
