I am looking for information also. I have a number 1 crusher, i thought it was for grinding apples, but it doesnt work for them it must be for crushing something else. If you have any information on what a number 1 crusher is for please let me know thank you

You might have a grapecrusher. I was recently given one by a friend to crush grapes and make wine. I was trying to find out when it was made because it seems pretty old.

was in Buchanan,MI today at the Gardner School built in 1860's the hand pump was built by Red Cross Mfg, Bluffton, IN that all I know except the pump was brought with the school from Weasaw township in Berrien county Mich. My grandmother taught at that school probably in the 1880's she was born in 1866.

I have a 14" reel-type lawnmower from Red Cross Mfg Co., which I still use. Its made of cast iron and could be anywhere from 60 to 90 years old, judging from its design. It was left in a 1923-built house that I bought in 1976. I guess RCM is no longer around, tho ...

I also have a wine press, used by my grandfather which was made by Red Cross Mfg, Bluffton, IN.

It works just fine, although I know absolutely nothing about it other than what I've put in the comment.

Joe, you have a fruit press. Until the passage of the 21st Amendment the Red Crossed advertised the wholesome quality of grape and apples juice and how the Red Cross products could make these things part of your life. After 1933 the fruit and apple presses quickly disappeared. It had less to do the 21st Amendment and more to do with the fact that FDR got the farms working again. Corn shellers did more then pay the bills.

I was given a large press some 25 years ago by a friend, when I first started making wine. It was old and pretty beat up, but I used it for crushing grapes. I recently retired, and since I have more time, and wine-making season will soon be here, I decided to give the press a good cleaning. Turns out it has a printed stamp saying that it was made by Red Cross Mfg. I was curious as to the history of it, so googled the compay and saw the various posts asking for info, though did not see any answers to the questions. My email is: gilesinkenya@yahoo.com.

(btw - I am not in Kenya - I retired from there two months ago and came home to NJ after 12 years in East Africa. Decided to keep my email address rather than lose some contacts. JG

My grandfather worked there when I was little. I remember when I was with my grandmother to pick him up it was great because I got the twinkie she would pack in his lunch. I will try to find out more info for you all. I think they closed shop back in the early 70's but not sure. I will ask mom.

I don't know the value but at one time the National Windmill Museum wanted a Red Cross Windmill. Do you still have it?
