machine from American Lincoln Co. in 1952. Frank had 7 sons that grew up in
the business laying, sanding and refinishing hardwood floors. Don Robbins, Frank’s
sixth son, worked for his father until he went into the U.S. Navy in 1952. When
Don was discharged from the U.S. Navy in 1956, he returned to his father’s
