aftermarket window crank handles

sachsach Posts: 30Member
   In New Zealand, are there any foundries casting new aftermarket window crank handles for the 1928 Essex super six and how do I obtain them. Also, Geoff Clark mentioned in a previous thread that he was about to have a few radiator cap figurines casted at the foundry and I'd be interested in a price on one of those.  Thanks,  Sach.

    Geoff Clark is your man for both window crank handles & radiator cap/flying man.

    Sadly, the man who  operated the foundry has died, and we are awaiting news of whether his sons are going to continue the operation.   So everything on hold at the moment.  We have molds for all interior hardware for 1928 and '29 Essex and Hudson, as well as radiator caps.   Watch this space.

    Geoff, that is so sad to hear. What was his name? He did many people good by helping us out with his part in casting these items. A car is built by a team, and I would like to add his name to the list of people that have helped me with my car.

    Ross Wilson.   Did a great job of lost wax casting.
