TESTIMONY OF MESSRS. JNO. W.
WHEELER, of Cleveland, Ohio, and John C. Lefferts, of New York. PUTNAM MFG. Co.:
GENTLEMEN : I know from practical
experience that iron well galvaizned with zinc will not oxidize and rust one
particle. I can safely say, after several years experience in the manufacture of
chain, for chain-pump and water-drawers, in which I have tested the affinity of
iron and zinc, that, if the process is conducted properly, it is a per-fact weld
of the two.
Nearly one year ago my family
commenced using one of your Wringers. It now performs all of its functions as
well as it did the first time it was used, and has become an indispensable
article with no. I have closely observed several other kinds of clothes-wringer
the modus operandi being different, trying to produce the same results as the
Putnam Wringer, but in my judgment they have failed. The Putnam Wringer is as
near perfect as possible, and I can cheerfully recommend it to be the best in
Respectfully yours, JOHN W.
WHEELER. Many years' experience in the galvanizing business enables me to
indorse the above statement in all particulars.
