Does anyone have a contact with a shop here in the east that will re-core a brass radiator? I'm hoping to find a shop near the Washington D.C. and surrounding mid-atlantic region.
Just had one re-cored here in the northwest and it cost me $900.
WAY more than I thought it would.
Thanks John... I figure I am going to pay dearly for it...
I have a friend in northeast KS who has done several brass T and other makes (three K, one complete recore for under $1,000). I know some forum members have used him. He will receive and send by carrier. Let me know if you would like his contact info.
Rob... please do! Thank you.
It would seem money well spent to re-core rather than buy a "new" Brassworks radiator. Since the new owner has taken over it seems the quality and care has gone down hill.
A good friend ordered a radiator for an early Schaat. When received the core was smooshed due to poor packing plus the core was of very poor quality, needing a lot of rework. When he contacted Brass Works they told him not their problem, they had the money and he had his radiator.
I have a friend who's had both automotive and very early aircraft radiators worked on by Universal Carnegie in Pennsylvania, think they are outside of Pittsburgh. Their work has been excellent. I do not know about cost. http://ucvintagerad.com/
Universal Carnigie 800-867-9554 If I remember right they are in PA They did a Packard radiator for me for what a T recore costs.
