Does anyone know who can restore old magneto switches? Thanks! Mac
They are not to hard to rebuild but your limited to the times you can open the case due to the tabs will break off. I done one and am doing a second next week.
What about those guys at Lock Haven? I know they do quite a lot of the old gauges.
Keystone Instruments had some old mag switches for sale at Blakesburg Iowa fly in. They looked like they did very nice work.
Thanks for the leads!
There's almost a pun there!
That was on purpose ,yep sure uh huh!😀
Mac I might have one I need restored also. Let me know what you find out...
Sent my mag switch to Keystone to have them go through it and pretty it up. It came back pretty nice. They charged $225.

Very nice, classy.
Nice! What did that one come out of? I’ll have to look at the one I have in the RangeDuster. It looks very close. I assume my came from a Fairchild PT etc.
I have on very much like that in my Acro Sport. Pretty sure it is the same manufacturer. B&F Aircraft had a bunch of them that were surplus, new old stock. That was a long time ago. Think I paid $20 for it. They are super heavy duty.
Still come up on eBay NOS too.
Looks better with a red handle Neil! 😀
I bought this one on eBay . Don't remember what I paid but it wasn't much. I'm pretty sure these mag switches were used in Gee Bee replicas!😀
