Dh'ionnsaich Iain Friseal, Gobha Airgid Inbhir Nis, a chiùird anns na 1930an aig Medlock and Craik, seudairean agus luchd-dèanamh uaireadairean aig 6 Sràid na Drochaid, Inbhir Nis. An dèidh làimhe, bha togalaichean aig a' chompanaidh ann an Exchange Place agus Geata na Bànrigh.

Anns an earrann chlaistinn seo bho na 1970an, tha Mgr. Friseal a' cuimhneachadh air a bhith ag obair leis na bun-stuthan - earrannan airgid. Tha an dealbh seo, a chaidh a thoirt le Taigh-tasgaidh agus Gaileiridh Ealain Inbhir Nis (IMAG), a' sealltainn fear de na h-earrannan aig Iain Friseal - bràiste Clann Fhriseil leis an t-suaicheantas 'Je suis prest' (Tha mi deiseil).

'You got sheet, you know, you bought your sheet sort of soft, half hard, hard, bright rolled now - you couldn't get that in those days, in the 30s. Now you can buy silver bright rolled, you can buy it in different colours. You can always - You can buy it, for instance, for deep spinning; you can buy it for drawing and seamless tube; you can buy it in a lot more different forms from what you could buy it in those days. In those days, of course, you didn't bother.

For instance, in wire and things like that, you bought a billet or, if you had silver scrap, you melted it down. You had the facilities - you always had a small furnace down below, in a basement - and you melted it down and you purified it yourself with borax and then you just ran it into a skillet and you had a billet of silver, you know? And then you could hammer the billet, which was square, into a round, a rough round, like a pencil, and put a long point on it, and then for wire, half round wire, triangle wire, square wire - all different types of wire - but plain wire, there was no pattern on it - you could take that and put it on a draw bench and then draw it through steel plates.

Now you could have a steel plate with just the ordinary steel holes in it or you could have a steel plate with agate holes, lined, inside each little hole you would have an agate insert, and that would give you what you called a 'bright' finished wire. I think the term they used in those days was 'Turk's Head' and that was if you wanted a very bright wire, and it was taken through the agate to - and you would probably pay, you know, two or three pence extra for doing that'
