Vintage Steam Products - New Items & July 1 Price Increase

Dear Friends & Customers:
We’ve been ordering new material for the first time in a while and are stunned at the price increases we are paying.
We have not raised prices since we purchased the business from Art Hart in 2009.
We cannot absorb these additional costs without raising prices. Yes, inflation is very real!
Effective July 1, 2014, we will be increasing prices to reflect our increased costs.
We will hold prices (with a very few exceptions) for all orders received before July 1, 2014.
Order today to avoid the July price increases.
New Product Survey:
1. We’ve been asked to produce condensing car flare nuts and fittings for 7/16” tubing, 11/16” -18 with a ¼” NPT male end. See photo. We’d need to sell at least 350 to break even. Please tell us how many you would buy if we produce.
2. We’ve sourced 7/16” copper tubing for condensing cars. Would you buy this product if we carried it at $13.00 per foot? It requires a special order from the supplier.
3. Some people have asked for 7/16”-20 flare nuts and fittings for condensing car air systems. See photo. We’d need to sell at least 350 to break even. Please tell us how many you would buy if we produce.
Thank you so very much for supporting Vintage Steam Products.
Tell us how we can help you get or keep your steam car on the road!
Very best wishes!
Don, Carolyn, & CJ Hoke
