splint sets

Fri Mar 28, 2008 01:25

I'm looking for splint sets, specifically 9782200 Splint Set, Army or 9781500 Splint Set. If you have any individual wire ladder splints as shown in the pic below, I'm interested in those as well for the ambulance.

I found several web sites that still sell ladder splints commerically. What would be the correct size of wire splints for the splint sets?

Was looking for something else and in FM8-50 Sept 11, 1940, on page 14, it says the wire splints 3 1/2 by 31 inches. One short side is missing with a gap between bars about 5/8 inch apart. Now I'll see if I can find the right ladder splints.

Also found out that the Army hinged half-ring leg splint, Splint support and footrest, and Thomas spling, arm-hinged all are made out of "1/4 inch cold rolled or Bessemer steel rod". Guess I'll have to see what Google can find.

found a telescoping splint set from the 80s, but didn't buy it as the only thing common was the bassboard splints

Maybe it would be worth just finding someone who knows how to weld/braze and have them make some for you? If you can pull this off, I would be interested in some as well.

Its on the bucket list Steve ... I have pretty good photos between what Ben and Alain have posted and the manuals etc. But my worst enemy is time. The list is long and free time ... not so much.
