Some years ago I had a similar problem and found a small brush manufacturer who made up a brush for me. The cost was very reasonable and it was an education watching it made.

Good luck with it.

I do believe that Geo Holloway & Son are no longer in business...Maybe someone else took up the business regarding spare parts for their machines...there are still a lot about and in everyday use.

Did you know that George Holloway was the founder of the Carpet Cleaners Association now now as the National Carpet Cleaners Association back in 1968?
