That would mean it's almost certain to have been made by my 'mentor'.....Danny Foster......incidently I was 'coaxed' back to work at Bob Jackson's in February 1987 to do the Hetchin frames.......but left after a couple of weeks without ever getting to build one....shame really.
Think the consortium that managed Jackson's was run by a chap called Jake? who I believe was a record producer to the likes of Elvis Costello!
After a few turbullent years Bob re-bought his company with the help of the present owner Donald.

Sounds about right. Hilary Stone wrote and said this is the first frame built by the consortium that Purchased both Bob Jackson and Hetchins.
