Hi: so I have a long abiding fondness for making and repairing the tools that other crafts-persons use to make their crafts. I have made 4 pottery wheels, repaired at least 6 spinning wheels, repaired one “barn loom”, etc…
So recently I started looking at other crafts that extensively use wooden tools… I came across Broom Making…
There is a variety of tools or “machinery” that broom makers might use. And while I can readily find plans online for pottery wheels, woodworking benches, shaving horses, looms, spinning wheels, glassblowing bats, etc. I find NO plans or instructions for new broom makers to make their equipment (nor for me to do it for them 😉 ).
I Did find some really good sketches though, and I contacted the artist/broom maker to ask for dimensions so that I can draw them up proper! He said he would get them to me…
But for preliminary sketches I now have these waiting on accurate measurements to refine them:
And So soon I hope to be able to post plans to make some of these to the internet!
I’ll keep updating this: so stay tuned 😉
