TS Rear Carrier and Front and Rear Stand parts
« on: 31 May 2023 at 04:30 »
Hi Everyone,

I recently had to make a new front and rear stand and rear carrier for my 1925 TS restoration. I had a number of parts laser cut so if anyone needs any of these parts let me know. Below is a photo showing some of the parts but there are other I can provide.

Cheers
Marcus

Hi Jim,
I had some made and only have a sample left see the photo below, I can get some more done, we reform round tube into oval, It works really well but the flat side has a small depression in it which you can see in the photo, I filled that with epoxy filler and I'm very happy with it. Also attached are photos of the stand, foot that I made for the bottom and the tube itself.

Let me know if this is of interest.

Cheers
Marcus

If you put a wooden dowel inside the tube before crushing it, you avoid the dimple in the flat surface, except at the very ends.



There the wood extrudes out the end and does not provide the support needed. Just allow an extra inch on each end to trim off the malformed portion. Place the tube in a wood stove to burn out the wood, or you can heat the tube up with flame. Eventually the wood will char enough that it slides out. Be careful, as it slides out and encounters air it burst into a flaming stick. Rather spectacular.
