IH wood sign letters?

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

IH wood sign letters?

Postby Super A » Tue Nov 07, 2023 9:50 am

Does anyone have a nice, clear photo/plan of the wooden letters that were used in IH dealers in the 40s-50s? (McCormick, McCormick-Deering, Parts, Service, etc.) I'm working on a little arts and crafts project. Example below.....

American Pickers Season 23, Episode 14 : Pool Hall Picking. He bought them for $600. Here's some screenshots but not very good quality.

Follow up question: How tall were the letters?

Thanks!

When Stanton made his, he mentioned collecting information, don't know if that meant the actual size of the letters that he ended up with.

I also hope to attempt to make a set one day.

Good luck,

Steve I may need measurements from you. I have a set (can't recall how complete) and at least 2 letters need to be reproduced.

I've got a dxf file that Stanton sent me.
I'm happy to pass on if anyone wants a copy...
Also a dxf file for the IH logo too

I would like to make a set too! I do a lot of woodworking here so I have several machines as well as hand saws.
