    Default 1926 Koken Presidential. SO Busted!!!

    My friend broke his bosses lovely restored '26 Koken Prez; snapped both supports that hold the footrest. He has tried (and failed) to find replacements. Any advice?

    Are you referring to the antique hydraulic lift, reclining barber's chair?

    Try ebay. There may be parts available in the resale market.

    They are out there. A few months back I ran across A guy that had a ton of old chair parts. If I can find it I will bring it back. It seems that was his thing restoring old chairs. I would check e-Bay and anybody that has more than one chair. From my memory though the ones I saw where elsewhere. I'll rack my brain and look around.

    Another possible avenue, is the guy who runs the annual Barber Collectibles Meetup in Ohio. Go to this website and maybe email the guy who runs it. His addy is at the bottom of the page. If he can't furnish you with the parts, he may be able to connect you with someone who can. 11th National Shaving Collectibl

    Other than that ...... tell your buddy to look in his local classifieds for job opportunites ..........

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
