  • Model A Ford



    This is my latest cutting and not one of my better ones. 19 louvers with 1/32" wood between them. Does anyone have a tip or idea as to how I should have cut them? 1/8" birch plywood, 1/8" luan door skin for the backer, oak frame. Model A's were made from 1928 until 1931. I believe this is a 29 or 30. THe step plate on the running board is throwing me off. Trivia for the old timers on here. Where was the choke handle located on the model A's?

    I don't understand your louver question Mick. They look fine

      I agree with Oily, looks good. It all looks good. I really like how the shadow makes the car really stand out. Very nice work.

        Nice!

        That "A" really looks good the way it is shown.

        Was the choke on the column with the Spark advance?

          GRAYBEARDSTL, 2 levers on the steering colunm, 1 for spark the other was the throttle (cruise control)
          The choke was a long rod that ran from the bottom of the dash in front of the passenger down to the carb. Could be pulled out or turned out on threads to set the choke as you wished. I had a 29 coupe and a 30 sedan. Should have kept both.

            Great to see you back at the saw, Mick. Model A's were great cars, a little care and they seemed to run forever. My Uncle had one that he bought new and drove it until after WWII, bought a '48 Olds, to my knowledge those were the only two cars he ever owned. Yes if you had both those now, it would be worth a gold mine!!

              Very nice Mick. Fords are one of my weaknesses. This Model A is a great car. Any info on where the pattern is available?

                        Way to go Mick, that's a nice looking " A ". You did a fine job cutting it. I'm not sure what you wanted on the louvers. Just cut one & move over to the next one. I think when I did lines like that, I drilled the holes on opposite ends, so the drill holes were not side by side. If that makes sense. Thanks

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
