CD #9
Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was originally owned by Dr. George Allison from Hanover, Ontario, who purchased it in 1957; the unit is a simple pump and turbine and used water to operate; it operates via a foot control but has only one speed - 50 000 rpm; G.R. Kern was a mechanic from Arlington, VA who filed the original patent, but by 1956 Bowen was manufacturing the units under the 'Kern Turbo-Jet' name; these units were made obsolete after the introduction of air turbine-powered drills, specifically the Airotor unit
