Didn't Reynolds originate as an Aircraft Tubing? I think it dates to fabric
covered Wings etc which has got to be before 1930.
When we were selling Reynolds in the 70s I remember they said it was still
being used in the frames of airplane seats
See http://www.reynoldstechnology.biz/downloads/RTL-Timeline.pdf . All will
be revealed. Although this timeline states that Reynolds was first used in
aircraft in WW2 my friend who works for a company which restores old
aircraft tells me that it was used in airframes long before that. They now
use a product called 4130 N where a replacement is required, and I believe
that is of US manufacture.
