" a metal block sliding on a track. "

Darrington (6 12cwt.) have these - the block is cast and the rail straight
(Taylors 1895/6)
Interestingly the two treble's (added 6 months after the rehang) have a
number of holes drilled in the rails for positioning the end stops.

Walkley (6 12 cwt.) have a similar version (Taylors 1895) but the block does
not surround the rail but has two pins under the rail which hold the block
in place. The Darrington version is superior!

East Ardsley (Pembletons 1999?) have these as well!
