If I missed getting back to people that were looking for these I apologies. I misplaced some of your names so get back with me if still interested I still have some left. My late partner's son did a great job in the machining of them, better then I could have done.
Remember the cases are the same for left or right side of car you just install the shaft opposite to get the side needed. Bob
Very nice. How much are they?
Bob, those where a God send when I was restoring my sedan. I made my own on one, then I saw yours in the Lang's book and money well spent!!!! Thanks again for remaking them. Joe Bell
Wish you would post your new products on here when they are available. Seems like, I find out about them after you stop making them.
folks, these are number 1 Quality items. You won't believe what a great job they have done in reproducing them and Bob is very reasonable with his prices. We need more of this going on in the sport.
Well Richard, I have started this one but not to sure it too will make a go of it. In the past my old partner and I reproduced the Stewart Warner 409 speedometer drive for the wire wheel cars and marketed through Langs. One advantage it didn't require a swivel only a cable leading to the speedometer due to fact the drive didn't need to make the 90* turn as with other drives.
We have since purchased an original iron gear to use in reproducing this same gear in brass and that will mount to the wood wheels but to go forward there needs to be some sort of market for them. At this point we plan only a couple copies for our on use and do a wait and see. Bob
Looks great Bob, but I don't see any castle nuts or cotter pins.
Dave by 1926 Ford was using split lock washers in place of castle nuts and cotter pins but your point is one of the main reasons I have stopped doing T items. Just too many OCD guys out there that don't see the forest for the trees. If not seeing castle nut and cotter pins will stop you from wanting this speedometer set up it's time for me to move on. I'm surprised you didn't catch the stainless steel Phillips head screws used on the window riser gear cases. Bob
Bob, I think they are awesome and everytime I roll my windows, I think of the fact that if I need them I know where to go. Thanks for your contribution to the hobby.
After seeing that key board you reproduced, I wished I had known about them. I would have bought one.
Bob's work is top notch,and he's right ,there are to many folks out there who like to pick their pepper out of the chicken poop.
AMEN Jack and Bob
