SPOKE PRESS 7-27-12
Using the Regan spoke press to assemble a Model T Ford wheel. Since making
this video I learned a couple of things. John Regan pointed out that
bolting the felloe in place is wrong. As the nut is tightened down, the
spokes will automatically center it. I found that the cardboard collar is a
good idea, as it holds the spokes up even if you lift the hub a little bit
to get them in. But the paper cylinder under the collar is not needed. If
the hole in the cardboard is cut a little smaller than the hub it will stay
on by itself. But just to be sure, you can add a little duct tape to keep

WW1 1917 Model T Ambulance Comes to Life
This is the first time this car has been driven since....my guess is ...the
1930's, when it was probably parked sometime during the Great Depression. I
found this Model T Ford in Iola Kansas. It appears to have a 1917 Chassis
and a 1920 Motor. My project is to create a WW1 M-1917 Field Ambulance. The
project is well on its way and I am going to shift over to building the
Ambulance Body. I started the project June 2009 and I expect to finish
sometime in the Spring 2010. Runs pretty good after sitting in a field for
70 plus years.
The "Becker Special" runs for the first time
My Dear friend Chris and I have been secretly building this Model T
speedster for his father as a Christmas gift this year. He had suffered
from mobility issues and could not drive any of cars in his collection any
more, which was a big blow to him. Chris and set out to build him a T that
he COULD drive. His father sadly passed away recently and never saw this
car...or even knew we were building it for him. It is now being finished
in his honor.
Today we started it for the first time.
