    Dearest internet,

    I hope this message finds you well.

    We've come across a curious bit of equipment which we were told was used to press the brass frames for goggles used by the RAF/flying squad during the war.

    Image(please note, that its on a sack trolly!) -
    Antique goggle press

    My questions are as follows-
    Who would have manufactured the goggles?
    Is this press what we believe it to be?
    Was there a particular area or company strongly associated to goggles?
    How did it work?
    Would a museum be interested in it?
    In fact, any info available on the subject would be useful at this stage.

    It weights at least 20 stone / 125kg and is constructed entirely from cast iron.
    It's roughly 50cm tall and around 30cm both wide and deep.

    Thank you,
    Internetter/junk collector
