Hello, i looked at Langs and at Macs and found 21 spokes. But they have the same sparepartnumber but a large difference in price. Is there another difference at this spokes? I have to order 48 pieces and 6 Dollar is a lot :-) Does anyone know?
Langs: 2800HSB = 10,50 $
Macs: T2800WB = 16,50 $
All 1/2" tenon and 21" diameter / Hickory
Lang’s has a stock of older spokes??
I just ordered one from Birdhaven (IA) and theirs were $13.95.
What means older? Is it not good to use older spokes?
Michael, Older as to the dealer bought them a while ago at a lower price then they now sell for and is willing to pass the savings along to the buyer.
I am Jim from Langs and i just wanted to let you know the reason our price is lower. We are the supplier of these spokes.
Thanks to all for these informations.
@Jim: I will order after christmas, because i have to look at my T what i all need. I want to restore the frontaxle etc.
Thanks for your post Jim. What many do not realize that the "T" market is limited. There is not an unlimited market which you can sell your product if you are a provider. Therefore one supplier distributes their product to many different vendors. The maker of the product or the one who brings it to market has the lowest cost involved, thus can sell for less.
Jim, what variety of hickory are your spokes?
owner of 3 wheels with red oak spokes.
I am going to have to call the person who makes these for us. but it is going to take awhile becuase he takes a long winter vacation.
Jack: There are many individual reproduction Model T parts that ARE manufactured by more than one source. Also, the vendor with the lowest price may not always be the guy who makes any given item.
