On a mag ring, the point where the copper ribbon meets the mag post. The triangle insulator. I have one cracked. What can I make one from?
I believe Langs sells them.
I just checked Langs, and they don't have it. Maybe I can use a type of plastic.
My first thought on plastic would be Delrin. It machines well and should take the heat.
Good luck with your project. Bill
Dan: The originals appear to be phenolic sheet, cut into a triangle. Wally uses a high temperature fiberglass reinforced material, something like circuit board stock, but much thicker in the high quality refabs he does.
If you want to try phenolic, send a pm to me and I'll cut out a small piece and mail it to you, no charge, just tell me how it all worked out when you complete it.
James is referring to Wally Szumowski. He does an outstanding job rebuilding mag coils. R.V. Anderson does also.

Chemistry counter tops would work. I have been making coils for Robs 6-40 I use it for the coil top. Cut with carbide blade can be drilled and taped.
If you would like some scraps let me Know . Will gladly send you some.
Dan, I believe they were originally made from micarta board which is still available. KGB
I got some phenolic from an electronics salvage store and made my own about 10 years ago.
I'll try jame's first, If it doesn't work, I'll try Norman's. Thanks for all the help. It's not the money. I want to see if I can do It.
Dan, I rebuild a few magnetos and use gasket paper for the layers under the coils and in the coils up and under the winding before I warp the coils with cotton straps.
looked up your profile. I see you are in MN. Not too surprising. I find it interesting that there are so many Scandinavian names on this forum. I have been on a few other fora, where Scandinavian names are very few to non existing.
Beautiful four door!
