I've been unable to find a vendor who has spring shackles for sale. Mine are worn and need to be replaced. If anyone has any good shackles of the type that are L-shaped and have an oiler screwed into the bolt head (I have oilers) send me an email or PM. Reproductions and non-original looking units are fine. What I have looked like the attached photo.

Am I correct in thinking these are among the lines which Chaffins have produced?

Mine were originals - I just used a photo from a catalog.

I just bought a set from Lang’s 2 front and 2 rear, they come in a complete set of 4 you can save a few bucks on a full set. They also have the screw in oilers. The ones you’ve pictured are figure 8 style. 1915-17. Hope this helps.

I broke down and ordered some $$ ones from Chaffins. I'm in a time crunch so it seemed the best option.
