Rejuvenate Serial# Plate

Postby PVF1799 » Fri Apr 17, 2015 6:28 am

Rex'48 needs his serial# plate back. Do you have any suggestions on the best way to restore this original plate? I thought of getting some thin tin and making a laminate. I'm open to suggestions.

I think I would buy a replica plate with the correct serial number.

Then have the original serial number plate laminated in plastic. Place in the parts book or with other tractor documentation.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Mrs. Deiner continued to make reproduction serial number tags after her husband passed away. They are exact copies of the original.

I spoke with Mrs. Robert Deiner. The process is to send her the original - She with the help of an engraver recreates a new one in 2-3 weeks. Then you get them both back in the mail. Cost $83.00 USD.

Wanted to pass this information on.

From what I heard, I think that is the way to go. You won't be able to tell them apart as far as the style, engraving, etc. I personally don't believe in reproduction tags, but since yours is damaged I can understand wanting a replacement.

Al - It would be my preference to use the original also, but as you noted the corrosion on mine preculdes me from attaching it in the original holes. I'm gonna give it a try.

So, now that I have my new plate and rivets I'm unclear how to properly set the rivets into the bolster. Can someone let me know if a special tool is required?

Thanks for your help, Ken

Although I have never reattached a tractor serial number plate, I have attached id plates to numerous machines with high helix hammer driven rivets using a large finish nail set punch. A bronze or copper punch will work too (and won't mar the heads).

:Dito:

In this case, "Speak softly and carry a big stick" does not apply. Speak as loudly as you wish, but a small hammer with mild strokes are best. :coffee:
