An Algona firm, Livingston Tool Co., is in the process of manufacturing an initial order of 1,000 units of a multi-purposo accessory for garages and filling stations called "Clean-O-Mat." The product is being sold nationwide. To meet the' capacity required for production, Bert Harmes, owner of the local firm, has rented the former Gerber-Buscher building across highway 18 from Livingston Tool's present, plant, and a production line is to be set up in thai building for the new product. The Clean-O-Mat is the creative idea of John Threlkeld of Britt and Don Deal of' Algona. 'Threlkold has been representing 'the U.S. Chemical Corp. of Kansas City and Deal has been nn employee of Percival Motors in Algona. The two men developed the idea for a multi-purpose product which would wash cars, clean and flush radiators, •lean engines and clean uphols- ery, all from one portable unit. With their general idea they went ito Harmes, Who in turn )roduced a pilot model of tnt :iean-O-Mat. This model was successfully tried, and U.S. lhcmic»l Corp.. in turn agreed to be national distributor. Sale and shipment of the units is al- •eady underway. The original order represents nearly a quarter of a million dollars. Already in the planning stage s another unit that would find ndustrial use and in the food >rocessing industry. Britt Tech Uorp. itself has as its aim to find and develop new products for he U.S. chemical field. Control of the. Clean-O-Mat unit is from a five-button remote control unit handled by the iperator. By pressing buttons le can switch the function of the Clean-O-Mat. A 25-foot attached hose allows ample freedom of movement in handling the con- rol ; and the cleaning unit.

Normally all Ammonia is applied in April and early May in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Southern Iowa, This year due to excessive moisture, application is delayed and everyone will want ammonia at the same time — and an acute shortage will result. Last year with more favorable conditions, over half the dealers in Iowa were out of Ammonia in June, There just are not enough tank cars to deliver the ammonia in rush season. f ONE OF THE CLEAN-O-MATS now being manufactured by Livingston Tool Co. of Algona is being inspected in the above picture by faculty members and one of the students from Nebraska^Vocational- Technical School, during a recent visit by 85 students to Algona. Directly behind the Clean-O-Mat is John Threlkeld of Britt, one of .the officers of Britt Tech Corp. and behind the student from Thailand i!
