The various wheel shops make them, and I expect they sell them separately, just like the spokes. But you have to be specific about what you want. They come in different styles and sizes. Just "Model T" isn't enough.

Try Stutzmans. If you're thinking of reusing your old spokes, either get the new felloes undrilled so you can size the holes yourself for a good fit with what are probably somewhat worn spoke ends, or provide an exact size of the spoke ends to Stutzman.

Thanks guys I will make a phone call, all our wheels on our 12 are excellent original we are just giving them a fresh varnish after 50 years. I was going through the garage I have found enough parts to make a spare set and have some more wheels coming. We'll make a spare set in our spare time. Thanks again Colin

Living in PA, and having several Amish wheel builders around me, I had thoughts about rebuilding my wheels for my 15. I bought the two difference sizes of fellows needed for the T from the Amish, and had accumulated many spokes needed for the job.
Unfortunately, I was running out of time, and fortunately Calamer's was just down the road.
The time I got to spend in his shop, told me I made the right decision. My wood shop is complete, and I also have a 12x36 Lathe and a Bridgeport. After seeing what is involved in making a perfect wheel, I was very happy I chose a pro to build my wheels.---Len
