  1. Sorry for making this confusing for some and using a common short form for the word vernier caliper . Here is what I was referring to as a vernier for those that are confused. A picture is worth a thousand words. I think I will take a nap now and sign out and also having my 12 to finish and getting on the road. https://www.wish.com/product/5d6414c8fe85da3c6ce50d71?from_ad=goog_shopping&_display_country_code=CA&_force_currency_code=CAD&pid=googleadwords_int&c=6493229759&ad_cid=5d6414c8fe85da3c6ce50d71&ad_cc=CA&ad_lang=EN&ad_curr=CAD&ad_price=58.0
  2. When it comes to precision tools I have mainly Mitutoyo and have passed some of it on to my son in the past year. I replaced the digital screen on one of the verniers last year at a cost of $95 US. But with shipping & handling from the US the total cost came to over $200 and package would fit in the palm of your hand. So the shipping was expensive but with replacement value of over $700 it was still worth it.
  3. Here is a fellow that must be frustrated looking for a car and running a very different type of car add. Giving a little advise. I have never seen this type of an add in the want-adds. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/cornwall-on/pontiac/1557016667 Ontario Cornwall Cars & Vehicles Classic Cars in Cornwall Ad ID 1557016667 Pontiac $320,000.00 Posted about 13 hours ago Cornwall,
  4. My 1/4 drive ratchet leaver broke so they gave me a new ratchet. The original one had made in USA on it and the replacement did not. Only problem was the ball was missing on the drive so sockets fall off. After having it replaced again I called snap off and asked where it was made and could not tell me. I wounder if they will mark all their tools made in China???
  5. My sister did the ones in my 30 Cadillac exactly how the original ones were sewn. Three sides by machine and the side where the arm is by hand. Plus made me dinner while I waited is a deal you can not beat. I just noticed I never replaced the screws to original ones.
  6. I did not see one of the most important tools in the picture and its not made by Snap On . That is a green garbage bag to help put the tire back on the rim.
  7. We were on that tour and got some great selfies !!
  8. You have to tell us more than that.......
  9. Was there for my first and last event with CCCA 6 years ago. Yes the Gilmore was outstanding and if in the area I would stop in again. You can spend the whole day there exploring the different venues and have lunch at the diner with a beer. Then after lunch wait in line to take a photo in front of the busiest photographed Shell garage in the world I think.
  10. The V16 valley cover emblems are in bedded into the knob as one piece. These have a stud and a pin on the back like a radiator or head lite emblem. I am thinking an earlier Cadillac may be the fit if they used porcelain ones in the teens and 20s or a later 30s????? The dash emblem on a 1930 is 3/8 of an inch larger than my emblem. Do not think a hat pin would have a brass screw to hold it on.
  11. A trophy shop with a CNC engraver should be able to help you out.
  12. Does anyone use https://spaenaur.com/ who stalks automotive fasteners. They are a good source for screws to upholstery hardware supplies and a lot more. The stalk over 60,000 different pieces in inventory and I do not think I have ever heard them mentioned here. Yes it is a Canadian company but their wear house is 115,000 sq. ft. in hardware they may have what you need seeing this is what they specialize in.
  13. I think V16 would have a red background and V12 would be a blue background. V8 are a black background like these one I posted but thanks for the input.
  14. I am sure it goes on a car seeing as padgett says having a nut to hold it in place.
  15. Here is a comparison of the one on the headlight and I am sure the others are larger also. You can see it is very small but identical in appearance.
