Precision Metal Stampings used the trade name Presco to market their products.
They were based in Sydney.
They mainly produced metal car toys, but also produced other toys.

Some time during or after 1948 they started producing tin-plate O gauge track and points.
Initially they made 2 rail and 3 rail track, but at some point they discontinued the 2 rail tack.
Presco track was used by both Scorpion and Maurlyn for their train sets and also sold individually in red boxes.
Presco ceased business some time during the sixties and their dies and tooling came into possession of the Wintoy firm.

Here is an example of a Presco 3 rail point.
