Wondering if anyone might have a Liberty step plate they could loan or share detailed dimensions and photos of. I have the wild hair that I would like to try to fabricate a pattern for casting using a 3D printer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Simon.....if you could send the length and width dimensions for the rectangle with the bolt holes, I believe I can figure it out and make a pattern.

 

Much appreciated......Have a great day.

If the photo above is of an original Brush Liberty step plate then you should not need to cast up the step part at least.  I've been looking for that style of step plate off and on for some time now.  The step plate with a 5" diameter pad is used on the 1902 Rambler and one step plate on an original frame I have is rotted off at the step.  I bought one similar off ebay years ago only to find out it was 4 1/4" diameter if I remember right.  Too small for my needs but I finally got a 5" one a month ago.  Keep looking on ebay for the 4 1/4" step.  Be patient and use buggy step or carriage step to whittle down the pile.  The down comer should be able to be reproduced by a good welder/ fabricator, should you get good dimensions.  Good luck.

Any photos out there of an original Liberty step plate? I have only seen one, and that was at Homer Edmiston's auction many years ago. That step plate had a Brush logo, very similar to early Cadillac step plates.
