I assume for a Model T? Still avaiable?

Robert, the tool is used on split rims to collapse the rim when fitting tyres. As such, it is used on 1926-7 T's with wooden spoked 21" wheels.

Hope this helps.

Allan,
These were made in different sizes and some are too large to fit a 21" rim. The question is relevant.

Yes, still available and yes, it does fit a 21" rim.

Bob....I have the steel fello, wood spoke wheels on my '24.

They're 21"

I'm assuming this would work on them....correct?

Would this work on a clincher rim.

Don and Steve,

I purchased this tool with the idea that these were basically generic. I understand that there are larger sizes as well.

I used it on the 21" demountable rims on my 1926 Buick and it worked fine on them. Since I sold the Buick and my "T" has wire wheels, I have no more use for it.

Don't know if it will fit a clincher rim.

Bob

Steve, that tool cannot be used on a clincher rim. That was the intention behind my initial response. It is for use on split rims, and only the 26-7 Ts and TT's used those.

The earlier TT's with the 23" rear wheels (Kelsey and I think Hayes)used a split rim also. I have used a rim jack on them, but I'm not sure if it was bigger than the ones for the 21" rims. Somewhere I have a rim jack that is adjustable to I think 3 different sizes. Dave
