@Alex and @Englishshoes, I must admit that today I couldn´t find the article where I am almost sure Mr Church admits they took over the production of Church´s custom grade line at Cheany at least at the time the article was written. I will keep my search some other day since I am on hollidays. Hope is not in my imaginery as far as I do not like to spread any kind of rumor, specially of this kind and here. I will come back to you as soon as I can. Should I have to apologize, I won´t hesitate to do so. Until then I will admit that is only a presumption.
It would be an interesting read.
