Looking for 1913 Buick top bow rest


Recommended Posts

I am in search of a top bow saddle or rest for a 1913 Buick Model 25.  These saddles were pretty common for cars and carriages from this era. I have seen many of these come up on EBay.  Mine is about 3 1/2" in over all length,  but the mounting hole is a 3/4" bore, and all I have seen have either 1/2 or 5/8 holes.

 

Thanks for any leads,

Thanks Larry,

 

From all I have seen it looks like the 1/2 and 5/8 use the same casting,  the 5/8 just has a larger hole.  I am not sure there is enough meat left after the 5/8 bore to go another 1/8".  I will continue my search.  Worse case I can learn to do some sand casting and try to make my own from the one I do have.
