wanted spokes like in the picture
« on: August 10, 2018, 04:16:04 PM »
 I am looking for spokes for my Stearns Yellow Fellow. The spokes are like the picture in the post, I hope, as I am having trouble getting the picture uploaded and seeing the preview. Spokes have to be 12 3/8 long. If nothing turns up I will make them

Dave, I can't help with the spokes but I have seen the tool that makes that double-right-angle bend at a hardware store, it was about $20, I almost bought one, good tool to have around in the shop.

Do you have a photo of the hub that receives these spokes?

Hi Tony
  Thanks for the heads up on that tool . Would you have a picture of it? Not sure what I would be looking for.  The hub is just a tube with holes  28 front and 36 rear. I will try and get a picture up for you .  I really only need one spoke . But if i want to do the wheel I would like a set 28 count  12 3/8 length.

Dave, here is a link to the tool I mentioned, the price varies a lot between $12 plus shipping to $30 depending on where you buy them. One review said they work good all the way up to 1/8" wire. Wow, that is thick wire ! ! !
