Welded wire wheel repair

Is there someone in the business of safely repairing wire wheels? Specifically 1929 Chevrolet wheels. I have two that have no rust and run true but one has a couple of broken/missing spokes and the other has 5 of the 6  hub bolt holes wallowed out from running loose or the wrong lug nuts. 

 

Has anyone done this type of repair themselves?

 

I am searching for a better one but they are one year only and mid year option introduction so hard to find.

I would  look for wheels on the Chevy page.  Were they used on other GM products of the same year? Also you should join the Antique Chevy club and advertise in their mag.( Well worth your money. ) The  wheels are out there but you have to track them down

Thanks, Good reminder I am in the VCCA but I should probably put a print ad in the G&D rather than just the forum.

 

Not everyone is online.

 

Dayton might be able to build a new wheel using a good hub but it would be adjustable spokes and expensive.
