Do anyone know where I can get a beater bar re-bristled? My 1918 Premier Duplex works great, but only in thicker pile carpets. Thanks.

Contact Lance Cheney of Braun Brush in Albertsonville, NY.
Tell him Marty Kaplan sent you.

He does EXCELLENT work and your brush roll will be returned to you in better-than-new condition.

It is helpful if you can send him a photo of the brush attached to an email, give him accurate dimensions, including desired length and number of tufts. Specify what bristle material to use (probably a stiff, black or dark brown horse hair/natural bristle for a vintage brush roll).

Braun brush only restores TUFTED brushes, not crimped, continuous brush strips. For example:

YES: Metal-backed brush inserts for pre-convertible Hoover agitators; brush rolls for pre-beater-bar Hoover uprights; Kirby brushrolls (yes, I know we can still buy them new, but I had a very early one that is metal clad, not just painted silver!)

NO: Brush strip for a Eureka rug tool.

I like to specify a tuft length maybe 1/8-inch-or-so longer than the original. You can always cut them down with a sharp pair of scissors if need be.

Hope that helps!
