All photos of the prototype were taken by Paul Turner.

In 1901 the Hersey Brothers Saw Mill became O.P. Berry & Company which manufactured excelsior packing material. The machine shop underwent some changes with the addition of the Penstock building. The Boiler building was added to the machine shop complex around 1917 to contain the boiler to produce steam for heat in the winter time. During the 1920's the machine shop was very active as a subcontractor providing machine parts to many industrial manufacturers in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. In 1926, the Berry Machine Company began producing the "Rimjack".

This revolutionary piece of hardware was manufactured for the sole purpose of making it easy to change a flat tire on the automobile. Unfortunately the car manufacturers changed the type of tires and the Berry rimjacks became obsolete before even getting to market. From 1926-1979 the Machine Shop continued to supply parts but its main function was to repair the machinery used in the Excelsior Mill across the Smith River. In December of 1998 a fire destroyed the last standing building of the Barry Mills Complex.
