Hi guys
I was scrounging in one of the buildings at my T parts guy's
House and found what I thought was a new day timer but
When I got a closer look all of the studs for the wires were
On the top .two on each side of the timing rod eyelet
After cleaning all the crap off it says blue blaze specialty
Corp .NY. It looks useable but there is no brush holder
Question is would there be somewhere I could get a brush
Holder ? The spring and brush would be no problem
Any hope?

The brush assembly is pot metal and tends to be cracked and broken. I think I have a NOS one somewhere in all my junk. The used ones are usually toast.

Would a replacement New Day brush not work with that timer?

Hi Stan I would be interested in the brush assy. If you want
To sell one .and to answer Hal's question the contact surface
In the blu blaze is more shallow than the new day .
So the brush holder will not work. Good thought but ?
