The Perry T. Lamkin Historic Display


One-Of-A-Kind Historic Display
Now Open at Wellington Farm!
  The First Broom Handle Machine and Belt Sander Ever Built

          A new Historic Exhibit opened at Wellington Farm in June of 2013.  The Perry Lamkin Historic Display houses the very first spindle making machine and the very first belt sander ever built.  These two machines were built by Perry Lamkin of Whittaker, Michigan in the 1870s.  Perry was a blacksmith,sawfitter and sawmill operator.  He hand carved from wood the patterns for the castings of the spindle machine and had them cast at a foundry in Milan, Michigan.  He then fabricated by hand all of the parts necessary to complete the machine.  His intention was to manufacture broom handles and rake handles.  He was not satisfied with the quality of the handles so he proceeded to build the first belt sander to improve the quality of his product.  Both of these machines are in their original, working condition and are tastefully displayed in a workshop setting.
