Other Interesting Points - In 1935, Rene William Turner established the Moderne Handles Company in Chapel Street, South Yarra, Melbourne, Australia employing just three people producing plastic (bakelite) molded door & cupboard handles. The company carried on to produce handles in the 50s and 60s plus other household items including candle holders. By 1966, the Company, now named Turner Industries Ltd, employed 1100 people and was producing Tools of all descriptions including screwdrivers, carpenters planes, hacksaw frames, etc...after obtaining the patterns for Pope & Falcon products (Australian versions of the popular Stanley Tools), Turner used his knowledge of the use of 'Red Cellulose Acetate' from his door/cupboard handle range to redesign the planes to included a unbreakable handle matching other items from his tool range. Turner Industries continued to manufacture Tools & Household items including Washing Machines, Lawn Mowers & Clothes Driers until 1970.
