In the Jan-Feb HCCA gazette on page 61 is an ad for Hildebran Designs (Brass/Bronze castings) which includes a photo of a Locomobile hubcap. They may be reached at 207-935-3729 or 207-890-9596.

Paul,  Thanks for the reference to the HCCA advertisement.  I had already scoured that magazine but didn't see what you mentioned about the Locomobile hubcap.

Look in the bottom right hand corner of page 61 and you will see a quarter page photo ad for Hildebran Designs. The photo shows examples of their work including a Locomobile hubcap similar to the one you seek.

Thanks again Paul for your reference to a business in the parts reproduction business.  The Locomobile cap you refer to is actually for a Series car around 1907.  It may also fit my Locomobile but does not match my caps.  I will drop them a note and see if they also do the exact cap that I need.

If you are missing your door threshold, Locomobile Script, trim pieces.  Contact me as I am going to go to an investment casting shop to have this trim piece reproduced with the intent to keep as much definition as possible.  The size is 7" long and the width is 1".  Contact me shortly if you are interested in a set of these threshold pieces.

Does any Locomobile owner have other small bits that would best be replicated using the "Investment Casting" method.  Please drop a note here as it may be possible to work together on projects that help the Locomobile marque.

Threshold piece is not correct for model 30.  I have what I believe to be correct plates. They were embossed by a press not a casting.  I was trying to have them laser etched to get the embossed look.

Hello John,  Could you post a picture of the threshold pattern you have?  I would like to compare with the one I have.  Any new progress on your Locomobile project?

Hello John,  Could you list the items you have patterns for.  Others, who may also have long shot Locomobile projects may be able to get some help from your efforts that way.

Al,

 In the Nov/Dec 1997 issue of Horseless Carriage Gazette on page 43 is an article on 1909 Model I Locomobiles. It might be worthwhile to contact these 4 owners as there is likely some degree of interchangeability between the Model L and I. Earl Filter wrote the article and knows the players.

Does anyone here know of an old hay wagon built out of a Locomobile chassis?  Or have you hear of any bare frames laying in the weeds somewhere, that could be for sale, drop a line.

Does anyone know of Locomobile projects that are underway for restoration or re-restoration?  Maybe parts sourcing can happen here.

Nice to a start of a good special.  I had studied your project when it was listed on PREWAR CARS.  It is good to know that it is now a functioning project.  I do not have many parts for this later model Locomobile.  What specific items are you wanting to locate?

I am considering using the pattern, (shown), to build up a few Locomobile Script radiator caps.  If you need one, drop a note.

Hello hanskirp,  When I get the quote for duplication I will send that information over to you.  I do plan to use a modern high temp alternative to the original bakelite with a threaded brass inset to thread to the radiator neck.  I would need confirmation of your radiator neck threads in order to verify that the new cap will fit your radiator.  Have you done much more to your Locomobile project?

If you, or a friend of yours, would be in need of a Locomobile script "Bakelite" type radiator cap, (using my pattern above), drop a note as this project is about ready to move forward.  The more caps built the better the price per each.  The cap will be cast out of a modern Bakelite hi temp substitute material and have a brass threaded insert glued into it to fit the neck of the  radiator, just like the originals.
