The most famous maker of aluminium club heads was William Mills of Sunderland England. His company produced more aluminium putters than any other club maker during the wooden shafted era. He created The Standard Golf Company (William Mills Limited) a division of The Atlas Works to produce his clubs commonly referred to as Mills clubs. While his metalwoods were eventually accepted by many golfers it was his putters that were the most popular. Mills began experimenting with the construction of aluminium clubheads as early as 1892. They produced two basic types of aluminium putters the long nose style and the mallet head. The putters all came in different weights and lies and although the long nose style putters were the first models made it was ultimately the mallet head putters that became the most popular. Mills continued to offer mallet putters well into the 1920s long after the long nose style putters went out of production.
