Wm. R. Clough, Alton, N. H., proprietor of the Rockwell Clough Company, is offering the solid handle steel cork screw illustrated herewith. Under Mr. Clough’s former patents wood handle wire cork screws were made on hand machines, and the handles were made in two pieces and glued together, being more expensive and less reliable than the one shown here, which has a solid handle and is made automatically.
A bundle of wire is placed on a reel, the wire goes in one end of the machine and the handle at the other. Meeting they are formed into a cork screw ready for market at one stroke. A patent has been applied for the present design.
