Leaving now to go to the Sullivan Trail Model A Ford Club meeting. Will report how the members liked or disliked this socket later tonight or first thin in the morning. Should also be able to report the sale price. Bill Haag

Ok Folks, as far as I understand, the car club members reviewed the socket, and according to what I have been told, they all liked/loved it.

Hopefully tomorrow they will be providing their unbiased reviews on the 13/32" socket and what they really thought for all of you to read for your own edification.

It appears we can account for over 50 pieces at this point, so my plan will be to manufacture 100 in the first run. Subsequently in order to do this in a reasonable time frame I will be purchasing some different tooling. Having accounted for all the cost, and again, doing this for a labor of love and not making money, I am counting on getting my cost back with this run of 100 once they all sell. The different tooling will then allow for smaller runs after the first 100 at the same cost to the end user, if demand is there for whatever reason.

Again, hopefully everyone understands what it actually takes to produce this top quality socket without cutting any corners, and hopefully the club members who have put their hands on this socket will confirm this for you on this thread.

So here we go. The pricing we have decided on for the socket is $24.00 US Dollars plus shipping. Flat rate shipping through usps is approximately $6.00. And apparently you can order more than one, and it will still only be $6.00 for the shipping.

I am not asking anyone to pay anything now. It will take approximately 3 weeks to complete the run of 100 due to my current shop load, and schedule, as well as acquiring the blanks and tooling. Once they are complete, we will notify everyone individually who has expressed interest, as well as post it on this thread.

In the mean time, I realize some may not want to pay this much, which is fine. But would all of you who expressed interest, please reaffirm your interest at this point via this thread, private message, or email. I am assuming most will still be interested, but I don't wish to purchase tooling and such, and then end up in the hole on this project. I am also planning to pass this information along to each individual who expressed interest via private message or email as well.

I am not planning on purchasing the blanks or tooling till the end of the week just to make sure the interest is still there at this point. And it will take about a week maybe a little more to get the blanks.

Once the first run of 100 is complete, we will notify everyone who previously expressed or has re-expressed interest with regard to how to purchase. At this point purchasing will probably be via credit card through paypal unless other arrangements are made on an as need basis.

Bill Haag, Jr.

P.S. Thank you all for your interest in this project, I feel honored to be able to help with this apparent need.

I am not gonna mention the name of the one guy who just pm'd me, but it was funny.

His comment was "I am not gonna be the guy at the next car show that can't brag about having an actual socket to fit the GAV on this "explicative deleted" carb.

Didn't say wether he wanted one or not though, so pm me back and let me know, lol, I am assuming you want one, lol.

Thanks for the support, lol

I just thought about posting that and it sounds like a sales pitch. I am sorry for posting that. But you know who you are and I will not reveal you since I found that really frickin funny since you didn't tell me wether you wanted one or not, lol. Sorry folks, probably should have kept that one to myself but I am still laughing since it sounded like some sort of peer pressure do it even though I don't want to situation, lol.

Sorry, can't stop thinking about forever4's comment, then this comment, I hope I live through this laughing fit to actually make these darn things, lol.

Once again I apologize, lol, and no, before anyone asks it wasn't forever4 that sent the pm.

Bill

I was at Walmart today. They had 2 sets of sockets that contained a 13/32 deep well socket. one priced just under $10 and a larger set just under $20. They are import, so how well they will fit, I don't know. Might not be worth bringing home, but they are available.

Am trying again to get photos of Bill's socket posted. Uploading is a no-brainer, system simply isn't working right now, 3 fails, tried 5 pix all at once, then only 1. Will keep trying, have contacted fordbarn administrator.

Try converting the pictures to a lower resolution. (size)

But, are they 6 point, and are they open enough for the GAV to fit deep enough for the hex to engage the socket?

As I stated they might not be worth bringing home. I too would be interested in buying a quality USA made socket.
