Hello, I was wondering if anybody out there has either a Wade or 3B Visalia tree they'd like to sell? I'm not making this custom for anyone but would like it to be all "average" sizing, no extremes on bars, seat, width, etc. Preferably between 15 - 16.5" finished seat. No production line or fiberglass trees. Not looking for cheap, just something I don't have to wait 2 - 4 months on. It's for a fall/winter projects to keep my mind off of my surgery that will keep me house and on crutches bound for a few months!! Thank you, Carol
Lovely accident prone critters gave me yet another big vet bill. Price reduced to $650 ~ and promise you'll send me a pic of the finished saddle Wade tree made by Rod and Denise Nikkel in 2010, seat will finish to 14 to 14 1/2 in seat, 5 " Cantle, 9" slick fork swell. About 4 1/4" handhole width, 8" gullet rise Made for a petite woman to fit old style QH with broad shoulders and good withers. Guadeljara style horn, 2 3/4" or 3" tall. Always Stored In the house out of the sun. Can send additional pics showing measurements, and I think Rod and Denise might still have the original specs. My life took on a different direction not long after I got this tree. I love it and am a little heartsore to give it up, especially since the Nikkel's won't be building any more trees. But, I don't see myself building a saddle in the foreseeable future and am now riding a narrow little mule so no good having a saddle built for me on it. Would much rather see this tree become the saddle It was meant to be Instead of sitting in my closet. Buyer to pay shipping and insurance costs, which should be around $75 or so total. PayPa accepted for paymentl, or cash if you pick up in person - located near Portland, OR. Sorry but will ship only US or Canada (shipping/insurance costs may be higher to Canada).
alaskasaddlery posted a topic in Saddle Trees and FittingsSo I bit off way more than I can chew. I thought I would have a good old time this summer and make a couple saddles for myself. Evetually, I want to make them and sell them, but that is way in the future. I don't have time to do this, and these two trees and this DVD are just sitting in my house. Would someone like a new 14.5" laporte wade? Here are the specs: Laporte Wade 14.5" seat built in cable rigging 4" cantle semi QH bars, 23" long ( I think) That's all I know off the top of my head. If you want more measurements let me know. Pony Tree Seat: 11 1/2" Swell: Slick Fork Cantle: 2 1/2" Bars: 15 1/4" Pony Gullet: 4 1/2" wide x 5 1/4" high Horn: 2" cap Loop-Lok 2 1/2" high Weight: 3lbs. 14oz. from the website. New in box. And the DVD is The Art of Saddle Making by Jerimiah Watt. I purchased it for $153 used but in excellent condition. I would love to sell the whole set for $450 not including shipping, but I am negotiable on the price.
