Congrats. That's one heck of a find then.

Might be tricky finding new brushes for it.

Will it get restored?

I'm not sure. I'm happy just to have it. It will get restored eventually but not just yet.

Are the bristles helical like a reel mower blade?

If you do plan to restore and need to replace the strip brushes go to brush dot com. If not common size they can give quot  on custom brush.

Now there is something I had never seen before.

Looks like a nice piece and other than the brushes, it looks to be mostly intact.

Congrats, that's great. :thumbs:

Wow, I am actually Speechless!

 

I dont use the Word "Rare" all too often but this time I will pull out the "R" word as this is the first one I have seen!

 

I do have the paperwork for this if you need it let me know.
