M3A4 hub cap reproductions available soon

Post by Av8er » Sun Jun 25, 2017 8:08 am

This is an update on a previous post. We think we have produced a suitable steel reproduction hub cap for the M3A4 hand cart. They are all steel and die pressed copies of an original. It is a low production run and we think they will cost in the range of $40-50 each. These costs are higher than we originally anticipated because of the time required to produce each cap. We are trying to see how much interest there is so we can see how many we need to produce. Any takers? Please post inquiries so we can get some feed back. The photos posted are of the first production attempt. The green cap is an original from which the dimensions were taken. All the bare steel caps are the first test production run for comparison to the original cap.

Are you going to be able to roll or stamp the numbers on the cap like the original.

Nice job by the way.

Roll stamps would just add to the cost and the reproduction costs are already much higher than we would have liked. Neither of the original hub caps on my 1943 cart have any numbers stamped on them, so we don't see that they should be necessary for someone who is just trying to get their cart complete.

I just sent a request to the machinist to manufacture some more hub caps. They will probably arrive in about two weeks, I will advise you when I have them. Hub caps are $40 each and shipping via USPS Priority Mail is $7.15. Payment through PayPal, PM your address after making your Paypal payment. A new reproduction computer cut gasket will be provided for each hub cap when shipped.
