Probably a self-promoting
press release...


Veracity?  Who knows?   :wondering:

The 95 Emerson CF had a single metal brush, speed regulator, and reversible.

Lundell claims 50,000 in use 98 season.

Dr.Bill Hoehn said he was offered a CF-1 once. It was in an Estate. But you had to buy the entire Estate to get it. I think it was $25-50K. He declined.
