Hench & Dromgold Straw Cutter

These small lever type feed cutters, generally referred to as straw cutters, also work well as a broom trimmer by removing the top board and fitting a gauge to set the length of the broom. The shearing mechanism is the same on both implements.

The blade is in very good condition, other than requiring sharpening. There are no breaks or welds as are usually found on the perforated H&D blade holders.
