Here's a group of Ekern emergency fixtures I have collected over the years. One of these would be a great item for a club to have for the trouble truck on a club tour. It also wouldn't hurt to have one of these aboard your car if you had the space to carry it.

Hi All

I could find no connection between the information in the ad
and the info cast into the parts (which led to the following)
Ekern Turk Mfg. Co.
E.T. Manufacturing Co
Pipestone, Minnesota
Ekhern Bros
Helmer O. Ekern
Willie L. Ekern
Emil A. Ekern
Flandreau, South Dakota

and the holder of what appears to be the
patent. for one of the emergency axles,

W1lliam Albert McQuagge
W.A. McQuagge
Marianna, Florida
Patent number: 1383554
Filing date: Nov 29, 1920
Issue date: Jul 5, 1921

and did not find any patent for the E25/E28
style emergency axles under any name.

Regards
Art

Jay:

I have a picture of one of my emergency axles that we used on the Colorado/Wyoming Tour #2. I hope I can pull it up. It was used on a center door that broke an axle in a strange place. The break was just in from the axle nut. In other words the broken piece was less than two inches.

I have one that looks exactly like your "E93" and Dave's picture, but I'm pretty sure it is marked Rex not Ekern. I consider it one of best wall-hangers, but nite to see it could be usefull on tour...
