Konker Hand Brake


Lester Breuer
 

When reviewing a MILW 36’ stock car diagram for number series 104570 - 105006 , class SM, built in 1927 by Ryan Car Co. in a MILW 1937 Shop Diagrams book I found the diagram states a “konker hand brake” installed.  I have no knowledge of this brake or have I been able to find any information regarding it. Does anyone have data or can direct me to a source to learn, maybe see a photo or diagram, of this type brake.

Thank You for your time and effort to help in advance.
