Rare Vintage Electric Hat Sizer Stretcher Nat'l. Hatters Supply Co. Works Well:
Rare, vintage electric,aluminum adjustable hat stretcher, in great working order and very nice condition. This has a plate on it that reads, "Silver Label Electro-Hat Stretcher, National Hatters Supply Co. Inc." This has a large red light above the on-offtoggle switch that lights up very brightly to let you know this is on. It glows a deep red. There is a large aluminum handle on the frontthat turns a stainless steel rod that is threaded on the end that goes into the stretcher. There are two steel rods, one on either side of the threaded steel rod that the assembly glides on when the handle is turned to adjust the hat size. This operates very smoothly, just like a fine piece of machinery should. The hat mold is separated into two halves that fit together perfectly. When the mold is closed, or fitted together the hat size is 6 3/8, when opened all the way the hat size is 7 7/8.Both sides of the hat mold heat up asthey should. This is a very, very nice vintage hat stretcher.
There are some age spots, such as a little surface rust on the stainless steel threaded rod, just a few spots, the steel guide rods have some slight surface rust, and the aluminum could use a polishing. Thereare twospots on the cord that the rubber coating has been worn away,very small spots, and not thru to the individual wires, and it still functions properly. All in all, as I said, this isa very fine machine!
This measures approximately 16" long, 13" high, and 6.5" wide. It will adjust a hat from a size 6 3/8 to 7 7/8.
