Workshop: rubble limestone, square floor, long pans and gambrel roof. Employer housing: coated limestone rubble, square floor, roof long pans and everything. The martinet is established at the end of the 18th century or early 19th century. Specializes in the manufacture of cutting tools (cutters), it belonged successively to several Domange, Molin, Prost, Braillard and Philibert. A bakehouse was built around 1855 then management housing in the second half of the 19th century. At the time of the closure around 1960, it seems that the production of the swift has been manufacturing-oriented. 1813: 2 pairs of millstones, 1 mill. 1854: four-wheel hydraulic, 1 beater to hemp.
