: Tool Business in Georgia
Jul 15th, 03, 9:34 PM
Does anyone live in or near Marietta, GA?
I would like to know if HARRIS MACHINE AND TOOL WORKS is still in business, and if so, how to get in touch with them. I want to get some info about a tool they make (or did make). The tool kit number is TBP-1.
If anyone can help, I'd sure appreciate it.

Yes, there are some members in that area. You'll be getting mail shortly.

I do...need more info on Harris Machine & Tool.
Do you happen to have an address? I couldn't find anything in the local phone book.

That's all the info I have (it is about 20yrs old).
I'll give that number a call and see if it is the same business. How far is Phenix City from Marietta? If it is not far, maybe they relocated in the past.
Thanks to you all.

I live in Marietta, but I've never heard of this company. I do have some friends in the automotive business, so I'll ask around.

A couple of machine shops with "Harris" in the name. One in Georgia...

It's not Harris Maufacturing in Dallas, GA.
I know Ricky Harris personally...small shop that's only been in business a few years.

I'm not having any luck turning anything up. I am guessing they have either changed names or gone out of business. Marietta is not a very big place.

Good evening. Can you post a picture of the tool and a description of what it does?
My brother is a great machinist and we are in the process of purchasing a machine shop in Louisville KY. We should be able to fabricate most anything. Let me know. Dennis

OK, I found a tool. It was ORIGINALLY made by Hayden (now Atec-Hayden) for $115. A transmission supply in OKC has ordered it for me. There is a seperate tool required for the 2 different sizes of bushings (turbo 350 and turbo 400 size). For now, I only ordered the smaller one (which is the more common size). It is supposed to be able to remove AND install a new bushing with the tranny in the car.
