Looking for leads on cutter restoration project

  • Cutter restoration project

Years ago I received some cutter sleigh parts as a gift. I recently decided to begin restoration. Mainly, all I have to start with are the runners and springs. According to the parts that I have, they are identical to a Prouty & Glass Carriage Co. Side Spring Comfort Cutter shown in a photo in a horse-drawn sleighs book. My search for information about this cutter has been fruitless. Does anyone know where this company was based and is there more information available so I can continue my restoration? I have a lot of work to do on this, but would like to make it as close to original as possible. Last winter I bent the runners and made two of the three beams and knees from measuring what was left of the old parts.
