Anyone know what this style nut # 8 is called and where I can buy about two dozen?

PS type "flanged hex nut" in the search box and they will appear as if by magic...
I have a lot of them. You don't say where you are but if you stop by I can give you some. Sorry, I won't ship.
Thanks Guys, I'll check online now that I know what they are called. Dave, I'm in Georgia so thanks anyway.
Dave, are yours 7/16 x 20 with a 5/8 hex? All I seem to find have an 11/16 hex.
Square shoulder rim bolt nut, we make them new,Bob
Dave S. Thanks I just emailed them to see if they are the right size.
Just found a bunch on eBay thanks for the help Guys.
Just got my eBay flange nuts and everything is fine EXCEPT the hex is 11/16 and not 5/8 as stated they work but are not the correct size as originals. Guess Lang's or good used are still the only source.
Return them, don't let that ebay seller get away with misrepresenting his product!
Yes. On the front page of the auction there should be a "Report item" link which will allow you to start a case in which you can voice your grievance and ebay will get involved to resolve the matter. I have successfully resolved several cases in this manner. It is customary for the seller to reimburse you the full amount plus the freight costs he paid to get it to you. You'll have to pay the shipping costs to send it back to the seller. The seller's incentive to resolve it to your satisfaction is to avoid negative feedback.
McMaster-Carr has the flange nuts in all sizes and all grades. Jim Patrick
Here is the search screen from McMaster.com. I think Bob Bergstadt, (Bob's Antique Auto) the guy who making them for I am guessing all of our Model T suppliers, is your best bet.
Those nuts are available from Snyders.

Just finished mounting my rims and tires on the Maxwell for the first time and find that a rim bolt is stripped. Can anyone give me the Ford part number of the bolt that these nuts fit so I can order one to see if it matches my Maxwells?
Never mind just went through the bucket of bolts, nuts, etc. the last owner gave me and there was a spare bolt. thank goodness.
I took those pictures a few years ago and the late John Berch posted them for me. Good to see they are being helpful. Dave
They helped me out David, thanks for posting them.
Quick question for everyone. When I found out one of my bolts was cross-threaded I found another to replace it but wasn't wild about hammering the old one out as it would never be as tight to the ancient wood as the original. Then I remembered an old trick. I cut a new nut in half and vise-griped the two halves together at the beginning of the bolt where the threads were undamaged. It backed off perfectly and straightened the threads as new. Does anyone make a set of two piece dies to do this kind of work or should I just keep cutting nuts in half?
Howard, you have me confused [not hard to do]. The nuts you asked about are for demountable rims. They never come near to the wood on a wheel. Did you mean the 6 bolts which bolt the hubs to the spokes?

Allan, these nuts are on my 1917 Maxwell which has a wooden felloe incased in steel on the outer side. The demountable rim bolt I had trouble with passed through the wooden felloe and the steel case and a rim clamp and nut held the rim on.
