Interview with Vacuum Cleaner Museum's Tom Gasko
- Thursday, 17 November 2016
We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Tom Gasko, curator of the Vacuum Cleaner Museum and Factory Outlet in Saint James, Missouri. Tom has years of experience with vacuum cleaners and has had the opportunity to work with the likes of Rainbow, Kirby, Electrolux and Filter Queen. He has also provided design input to manufacturers and even has a vacuum series named after him!
Tom has seen all sides of the industry and has been involved in vacuum cleaner design, sales, repair and collection. His vacuum cleaner collection is comprised of a staggering 800+ machines and includes some of the most interesting and important vacuums manufactured over the past 100 years. We were excited to ask Tom some questions...
