Does any one know who makes them for the benders? For wood and sure wheels. Any one have any commits on them. Jerry
I think he means vendors?
Jerome, I received a letter recently from a machine shop that repairs hubs. I know nothing about them, and I am not endorsing them, just passing along info. The letter is:
Crawford Mfg. Co.
5251 No. M-33 Hwy.
Cheboygan, MI. 49721
To Model T Owners, Clubs, Restorers, etc.
Subject: Refurbished original wheel/axle hubs
We are a small machine shop in Northern Michigan with over 50 years of experience in the machining of automotive and truck parts. Over the past 12 years we have developed methods and tools which enable us to restore most wheel hubs for many makes of cars to 100% usable condition. For Model T's this includes all years, wood spokes or wires, cast iron or steel. Fronts come with cup bearings installed, and rears have new tapered bore with a new keyway. Bolt-up surfaces are re-machined square to center-lines. Threads are restored for easy-on and off of hubcaps. Original castings, often with the "Ford" logo are used. Our restored hubs are currently in use throughout the U.S. and around the world. Upon receipt of your castings, inspection to determine usability is free. Pricing and delivery are confirmed in writing before any work is accomplished. We welcome your response.
Frank A. Crawford, Gen. Mgr.
As I said, I have no connection to them, but it may be worth checking out.
