Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: 22 buick & others horn button

I'm doing volunteer work on a local museum's 1922 Buick. Erik B. did a great job making it run again, now I'm "dressing it up" fixing the horn, etc.
The Horn button is DOA, as unfortunately is the back up unit I had. Here's some pics of the button assembly. The Copper tube is about 1" in diameter and is held in the aluminum spark lever by a small (#4?) set screw on the side. Thinking this button unit was likely used on other cars too--anyone have a lead for me??
I "stole" these pics from someone's posting on the AACA Buick prewar forum, hope I'm not badly breaking any copywrite laws.

David, you're not, unless the picture has some copyright mark and or a name, or if there some restriction on their forum about their use, they're public domain the instant they're posted. That's why any pictures I see here that applies to my project I take and archive for future use.

As to the button can't help there. :-)

You are sorely wrong according to Jim Thode, "Every photo taken is automatically copyrighted when taken, no matter if it is marked as copyright or not. 

Posting photos on this forum does not strip the photo owner of their copyright rights. "

I received a verbal lashing for using a photo posted on this public forum. In this post that has more info:

If I needed to copy a photo from this forum to post again on this forum on another topic I would just do it.

Hmm, well, since I'm using the photo to provide a description of the part I'm looking for, I think my use is pretty benign--and I'm not claiming I have any rights to the photo--if I could figure out whose it is, I'd credit them. All I can do is thank them, as our button is so bad, I really didn't know just what a complete one looked like.
And I thought I'd put "OT" in my thread title, but I notice it's not there. ????

Any chance it is a match to this? Button 1 1/8" OD, small diameter underneath 5/8" diameter

Layden
The button part looks right, maybe that's the "main guts" to one??

My Hupps have near identical. Not the first time I have seen Buick and Hupp parts the same.

David,

Last I saw there was a 1922 Buick horn button on eBay.
