Vintage Style Cloth Electrical Tape
$12.50

BACK IN STOCK!  We just a got new shipment of this fantastic tape in!  It's now in 3/4"x100ft rolls.

 

Whether you're doing a restoration, a vintage style build or a new traditional Hot Rod build, this is a simple, seemingly unimportant, but must have product. You know what they say about the Hot Rods that stand out from all the rest-IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS! This cloth based, sticky, old style black electricians tape is a detail not often seen...which is kind of the point...that it looks right at home, like it belongs on a car built in the 30's or 40's, or even 50's. Use this incredible tape for building complete wiring harnesses, wrapping tubing or hoses, or wrapping a steering wheel for that Track "T".  This is the same tape specified by major auto manufacturers for use on wiring harnesses, pigtails and electrical sub assemblys.   This material is easy to work with, is sticky, (but not too sticky), bends and curves easily, and has the right look.   So, rather than use the ugly modern PVC plastic tape which barely sticks, why not go "old school"? Keep a couple rolls around the shop, you'll find yourself using it more than you think. 3/4" wide x 100 foot rolls. Black only. Made by our friends in the Great White North, eh?

NOTE:  This is NOT "Friction Tape", which is a cloth tape commonly used on hockey sticks, skate boards, etc.  And you should NOT use "Friction Tape" as electrical tape, that's not what it was designed for.  The exposed surface of Friction Tape has a sticky residue on it, and your wiring will collect dust & dirt & look like crap in a very short amount of time!!  This high quality, Black Cloth ELECTRICAL TAPE should look great, and last for decades!

"Off-On Only" Keyed Switch
$27.50

Here is an item that is not real common-it's a keyed switch, but it is ONLY a keyed switch. There is no "start" function. In other words, it is a true SPST "Off-On Only" keyed switch. Most other switches are "On-Off-On" or "Off-On-Momentary (Start)", but a plain old "Off-On" keyed switch is hard to find! Use these in conjunction with our "Engine Start" or "Classic Chrome" starter buttons for a traditional, old style ignition/starter set up for your dash. Fits a 5/8" hole. Two screw wire connectors on the back. Comes with 2 brass keys.

NOTE:  Actual Switch may differ slightly from model pictured.

Ball End Toggle Switch-SPST

A Hot Rod Leather exclusive, not available anywhere else!

Here's a heavy duty Toggle Switch unlike any you've seen lately.  It has something that is impossible to find these days- what's called a "Ball End Toggle".    These were pretty common back in the day, and I've seen some in vintage catalogs, but these days,  they are extremely rare if you can find them at all.  These and the "Switch Guards" were used in industrial machine & equipment applications, and in environments where gloves were worn, (like aircraft, roadsters & race cars), making it easier to feel and actuate the switch.

This is a heavy duty switch, made for applications like headlights, fans or any other automotive type switching.  They have solid brass screw on terminals on the back, and requires a 1/2" hole for mounting.  Comes with small aluminum "On-Off" legend plate, jamb nut, and knurled face nut.  Shown with optional leather "On-Off Legend Plate", and our new nickel plated "Switch Gardz".

 Brass screw terminals-frame and support are steel with zinc chromate, case is black phenolic plasic-All other external parts are brass/bright nickel 

SPST Switch Rating:  10A @ 277V AC, 20A @ 125V AC, 21A @ 14V DC, 3/4 HP 125-250V AC

 

NOW AVAILABLE IN NEW CONFIGURATIONS!  - Same great quality Ball End Toggle Switch, but in new configurations!  Use them for high-low beam, DTRL's, raising & lowering suspensions, actuate power wondows, whatever you can come up with!  And, if you don't see the switch you want here, please let us know, chances are we can special order it for you!
