This was an odd hub that I found a while ago. It has 2.25 cap threads, 6 inch flange. Not T, any ideas?
That is put on the spokes backwards from how a model T wheel is assembled.
It looks like the flange would be on the inside.
Yes thats true Herb, I have the flange and it goes on the back.
I bought a "Model T" hub off fleabay once. It looked very similar but turned out to be a Chevy hub of same vintage.
Many, many, cars put the wheel hub into the spokes from the outside. At least as early as 1910 (I think much earlier), and Buick went that way until at least 1929 with wood wheels. Those I happen to know as my dad had a 1928 Buick many years ago, and I worked on it and looked at others.
My '27 Paige also is assembled that way. It really makes sense, though. The brake drum becomes the inner flange to hold the spokes tight. My Paige, and the mid to late '20s Buicks had four-wheel brakes, making it practical to assemble all the wheels that way. I would imagine that most '20s cars wood wheels are assembled that way.
Your hub, however, appears to be somewhat earlier. I would guess mid to late '10s, but it could even pre-date 1910. I sure hope you can find a proper home for the hub. Someone may really could use it.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
How about a 1925 Star?
Cool and rainy here today...
