As usual, the Mid-winter Model T Seminar in Hutchinson today was informative. I always learn something from these events.


Chris Paulsen showed how to do nickel plating.


With help from Mike Vaughn (L), Bud Redding (R) showed front axle repair.


Bud enlisted help from the audience.


Members of all three Kansas clubs attended. Here's East Central Kansas T's.

I took only metal notes. There was too much to tell it all here, but I'll reveal a couple of things.

Chris said the set-up for nickel plating costs around a hundred bucks. If you're doing only a few parts from one car, probably cheaper to have a shop do it. But if you're doing more than a few, it will save you money and let you keep control of what's done. When you send parts to a shop you often don't know what you're going to get back. Having big pieces done commercially while doing your own small items can reduce costs. The sample pieces he showed looked very nice. I even won a newly nickeled radiator cap as a door prize.

The third pictures shows a tool for checking whether an axle is straight or not. It's made from a piece of I-beam or channel. Straight rods are centered through the perch and spindle holes. If all the rods lie on the straight edges, the axle is straight. If not, you have to bend it straight.

WHO is the old white haired bearded fellow in the red Hat?

Glad you put that on there about the beard and the red hat otherwise it could be just about any one of the "old white haired fellows."

This guy must have been more interesting than I was, there were 8 guys that slept through my carburetor presentation a couple years ago.

In the second to last photo that is John Steele - Manhattan, Montana - standing up rubbing his chin in the back.

John - That man is shown in Steve's third picture and is identified as "Bud Redding" who gave the front axle presentation.

I see an interesting idea in the background of the 4th picture. Looks like a set up for draining out the oil from your qt. bottles after an oil change. It's amazing how much oil will drip out overnight and stay out of the trash cycle. I bet there was a place to drain the filters also.

Thanks for posting

Gene - My Dad used to do the same thing, but not with such an elaborate "set-up"! He used to claim that he kept a couple squirt-type oil cans for his workbenches full with oil that most people throw away with their empty (but not quite) oil cans that they dispose of after changing his oil in there cars. Back in those days, I remember that he used straight 30W oil except in winter, so his "system" worked just that much better with the thicker oil!

Other than my name and the fact that I did buy one of these a few years ago, I have no connection with the following company:

(They make a gizmo to drain your oil bottles).

Steve, I think the rest would probably back me up on this. I'm about 99% certain that car in the first photo isn't a Model T. I could be wrong, but...
