Balti-Moore Chase Co.?

Hello friends,
I just acquired a batch of chases for my C&P 8X12,and among them was one manufactured by a Balti-Moore Chase Co..Yes,it was produced in Baltimore,but that is the only thing I know abt it.I have become intriqued,and I am asking for any info that someone may have regarding this company,dates of operation,etc..It is a testament to the scale of the industry at one time that an entrepreneur felt he could specialize in chases only,is it not?I humbly submit this bit of whimsy…Peace!

It was common in the die cutting( especially in the day of block dies before lazers and routers) and letterpress industries to keep a lot of repeat jobs locked up to help eliminate idle presses. Today Bar-Plate makes and sells chases. In the early 70’s we had a poster print of a folding carton layout by Lord Baltimore Press. If I had the space I could use about 20 extra chases for my Heidelberg Platen.
