Compressed air supply for tools

John Charles Taite became interested in pneumatic tools.

1899 The "Boyer" was a very favourable tool in the United States where its value had been recognised for several years past. The development of the piciple embodied in caulking and chipping hammers resulted in the production by Messrs. Taite, Howard and Co of Pneumatic Riveting Hammers, by means of which riveting is done without the assistance of the usual gap frame.[1]

Presumably succeeded by New Taite-Howard Pneumatic Tool Co
