WTB ball caps ( 4th. mains) for re-babbitting

Post by Gene_French » Thu Apr 30, 2020 8:28 am

Wanted to buy bulk quantities of Model T 4th. main ball caps … prefer to buy quantities of 10 or more to help reduce the cost of shipping … I have been able to purchase in bulk in the past and have taken delivery at the Chickasha swapmeet or other sites … probably will not happen that way this year … I purchase at a low price and my finished ball caps reflect that low purchase price … my pricing reflects my Time and Materials … always an optimist ...Gene French phone 970-581-2808 email gfrench1953@hotmail.com

Gene -
I'll give you ours just for the postage, if you want it. From 52803. We bought a re-babbitted cap from you last month, so this well-worn cap is just one more thing for me to trip over in the garage.

Marshall:
thank you … I will pay postage … I do prefer to purchase in quantity since postage is often a "deal breaker " at todays postage charges … I think I have received 10 ball caps in a medium flat rate USPS box in the past … BUT , I also think that the size of the flat rate box's have been reduced and charge increased … I guess we are expected to pay more and get less … anyway , I remain an optimist ...Gene French
