Henry Shacklock arrived in Dunedin in 1862, and started his foundry in 1871. He had a good grasp of all aspects of the trade, and a wife, Elizabeth, who was ‘really useful … a partner in trade’ (John Angus, The ironmasters. Dunedin: H. E. Shacklock, 1973, pp. 14–15.). Shacklock’s skill became legendary, and his stove, designed to work with Otago’s cheap but smoky coal, was celebrated. Easy and cheap to install, reliable and effective in action, the Orion grew in popularity. Shacklock’s stove-making expanded to include a baker’s oven, a tailor’s stove, and a laundry stove. By 1900 he employed 40 workers.
