Looking for information
« on: August 23, 2018, 09:53:18 PM »
I have been looking for information on a brush I have that attaches to an old brown Sunbeam clipper motor. A neighbor gave it to me when I started showing in the mid-70s. They had quit making the brown motors by then and the single speed motors were the black ones. Any of you old timers know anything about them?  TIA.

I suggest calling Sullivan Supply and asking to talk to one of the old boys that work in the repair dept. They've seen it all and may be able to help you out.

This is a "power brush" that was used on a set of "Brownies" years ago. Kind of a forerunner to the roto brush's that are available today. They made a few different attachments for them "back in the day". You are lucky to find one, I've looked for one for several years to put on one of my sets of Brownies. RW

I actually have 2 of them. This one and another head a bought from a friend of mine about 15 years ago that had retired and was selling his equipment. The plug where you put the grease in the gears in the head is gone on it. The heads on the brownies uses 90W gear grease so the plug is important. It is a flat metal plug about 1/2 with fine threads on it. Any idea when these were made?  I was guessing 40s or 50s.  I know with the metal shield around the backside of the brushed, you could sure wrap a tail up pretty quick!  I have used it on cattle with tight leg hair to break it loose so you could pull legs.
