THIS IS OUR BROOM MAKER


We are looking for any information in reference to this piece of equipment, especially approximate age and manufacturer. Can you help us? If so please contact us by using the link to the left. Thank you!

Hi, I can give you a little information on your broom equipment. The winder is most likely home made using parts from an old winder (its a left handed winder). The press might be a "Peak Pattern Press" ca 1920. The trimmer is not a trimmer, its a sorghum cutter, a lot of people have used them as trimmers. This is the best that I can do from the pictures on your site. Take care, Bill.
