I have a few pieces of wood with these brackets, 4 in total.
Are they rare, can anyone use them?
They came with a lot of parts I bought.
Not rare but save them. $20 ea. if you buy repros. Or send them to me
I thought you were thinning the collection ;)
I will trade ya for any speedster parts ya got laying around
Those are not rare, and are the late style. They can be bought at swap meets for little money.
Not rare, but useable. Someone will need them..
Those are still good original brackets. Keep them or put them on the classifieds.
Ive seen them at swap meets anywhere from one to twenty five a piece depending on the vendor.
And at the end of the meet they are usually gone!
Never throw away any part, no matter how grungy it looks. Someone may need it for a pattern if nothing else and they'll be grateful to you for saving it!
I think I've actually given away more parts than I've ever purchased, mostly to new comers or kids that are dollar short and ambition long. Helps keep the hobby moving from generation to generation.
Tony: "A Model T'r will never throw anything that pertains to "T"away or in the scrape metal bin, as you never know when that piece of metal will come in handy, for sale barter or something else.
Keep them as I have 5 or more just hanging around!!!!!
Save that wood, original dimensions are on it! OK, so I am (mostly) kidding, but I have gotten measurements and construction details from wood not much better than that!
And, yes, save the bracket, and that high-head bolt too, hard to come by. Yes, if it had been the earlier style bracket, there would be NO question as to keeping it!
As Larry said, those are not the early ones, so worth about $5 each. But as everyone else said, don't throw away any usable Model T parts!
The other day i saw one of those for sale for $10. i had not seen one in real life before and made all mine. Should have bought that one and replaced mine.
