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 na buannachdan aig uèir airgid air a dealbh le obair làimhe. 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 Luckenbooth, air a bheil bràiste 'Màiri' air sgàth 's a' chumaidh M a tha aig bàrr a' bhràiste. Bhiodh bràistean Luckenbooth air daoine airson dìon a thoirt dhaibh fhèin. Fhuair iad an an t-ainm bho na seudan a bha air an reic ann an cùilean glaiste no 'locked booths' ann an Dùn Èideann. Bha an seòrsa fhèin ann an Inbhir nis, le lùban air an robh 'double spectacles'.

'Now, if you took that wire through, another way you could do it is, if you had no half round draw plate,you could take the wire through, round, and you would have a - what is known as a, swaging block with half round impressions, going from a large impression, about a quarter of an inch wide, right down to perhaps a little less than an eighth of an inch. And you'd put your wire into that and you'd take a flat hammer and you would gradually push it through and flatten it and make it half round. We did that too, you know? And yet at the same time you could actually buy the wire half round.

But it gave you a tremendous - I don't know what it was - it gave you a much closer feeling for the actual metal in that shape, because you knew what to expect from it, and you knew what would happen to it. And another thing that you also knew for instance, little things, little details, like, for instance, if you had wire that was drawn through the plate and it was bright drawn and it was very hard and you hadn't annealed it, then you'd an awful job bending it round something, 'cos it was very springy, and you couldn't actually get it close enough. So you learnt, when you made wire yourself, that you could see it springing, you could see the spring coming into it, you could the strength coming back into it. Then you could see it getting brittle and the next thing you could see it breaking. You could see little cracks coming in all along the wire where you had drawn it too long and you hadn't heated it, you know? And then of course if you took it out of that, and you bent it round something, it just broke and each time you would do that with a new piece of wire, it just broke up. What you learnt from that, really, was that you annealed your wire'
