Any one know what this is?
I'll try again.
Its a guy in Colorado attempting to load a picture?
he's only done it around one hundred times before.
Don't make fun of him, he does nice pictures and I have NEVER been able to load one.
Sorry Dave, I couldn't help myself...me bad~
It's a 12 inch ruler that the Fargo Mfg. Company, Inc. used for advertisement.
Don: I swear I did every thing right on the first two pictures but the computer takes me somewhere else. Do you know what the tool is above. It has nothing to do with hot patching a tube.
I don't Dave. And I have problems with pictures also. I gave up on the MTFCAI site because of the frustration level exceeded my patience.
Dave, is the little pipe on top, that's what it looks like, does it go all the way through the lid?
What does the lid look like underneath?
Does the bottom have a hole all the way through?
It looks like the bottom part will go up and down, and does it have a restriction to as far it can go upward?
I think it is for vulcanizing inner tubes using alcahol for heat
I agree that's why it swivels top and bottom.
Herb Kohnke: I will TRY to get a picture of the inside. And again its nothing to do with inner tubes or tires.
It is a devise for cutting the round hole in windshield for Clymer spot lights. I donated one to the museum.
You hit the nail on the head. Yes, Do you know what the next whatzit is.
I thought maybe a pot-pie maker!!
#2 is for centering speedometer drive gear?
I think it is time Dave stopped posting photos of tools which make Jack look like he knows what he is talking about. In our parliament they call it a Dorothy Dixer!
Sorry Dave. I couldn't resist. The pair of you make me feel quite insecure.
Allan from down under.
When I laid out the speedometer gear on my '25, I used one of those to get the holes lined up in the correct place. It doesn't get any more accurate than that!
Allen thank you for the kind words.I have been collecting Ford shop tools for 50 years,and studying the old parts/accessory catalogs. You also may avail your self of these opportunities.
Jack Daron is right again, however I would like to point out to anyone that is going to buy a speedometer drive gear fixture that the one above is not for the normal Stewart speedometer drive gear 60 tooth 8 pitch. The fixture above is for other makes or the Stewart Special.
I will try and post a picture of fixture for the 60 tooth 8 pitch regular Stewart.
There are two types of fixture for the Stewart 60 tooth/8 pitch. One has the points like the one above that you hit with a hammer on the other side, which then show dents that you drill to mount the screws in the gear. There is another fixture that has holes where the one above has points. You use the holes to guide you drill bit.
I have used both and I like the one with points the best.
