Those "Pizza" blades were always flat, you should be able to fix it - - I had to pay $250 for my last cake blade in good shape

I couldn’t agree more with Brad. Ted does excellent work and cake cages are his specialty!

It's been my experience that an eight wire cage, pinned or wrapped, would be correct. From 1904 - 1908, around 25% of the fans in the survey have a wrapped guard. While some will say NO, those are BMY cages, the giveaway is the cake cages use a cast brass spider to hold the s-wires under the badge. BMY cages, with the exception of the 1908, use a stamped brass spider.

If using BMY cages with Pancakes, the pancake struts would have to be deformed inward significanlty to accommodate smaller BMY cage. Just an advice.

I think I have a 12 inch brass GE cage floating around in my shop. I’m not sure what it came off of. I’ll look this evening.
