Good afternoon……..

Have a nice, but unknown to me, one piece flange. Wondering if anyone out there may have an idea of the origin??

Thanks!

If holes are tapped --- its for a top tension

Taking it off the rim and measuring the inside diameter might help. If it's an exact 10-11/16 or 10-13/16 inches that might not tell you much. But if it's 10-3/4 inches, it could be an old Stew-Mac flange from the days when they sold their own. If it's an oddball 10.78 -- or something between 10-3/4 and and 10-13/16, it's probably a Golden Gate.

Maybe you'll get lucky and someone will recognize the casting marks and the definition of the edges.

Thanks for those measurements……if it doesn’t get recognized I’ll pull it off.

The one thing you know is it's not Gibson, since it doesn't have  a Doehler mark or Gibson USA cast into it.
