Is Frank Fenton still making Anderson timers and if so, does anyone have a contact number?

Is this the same business that's now making the New Days?

Bill
In my view here is a better alternative to the Anderson Style timer.
TW Timer

Sorry
TW Timer

Ron, I tried the TW and it works fine as long as your timing cover doesn't leak. I've replaced the old style felt seal with the modern neoprene one and still I get enough "gunk" build up inside the timer that it shorts out and causes major headaches so I'm gonna switch to the Anderson. Besides, I've heard that the old style squarish TW brush was faulty and he redesigned a better, more rounded one. I have the old style and maybe that contributed to the issue but regardless, the TW needs to be perfectly dry and my T is just too leaky.

More important is the proper centering of the timer cover to the center of the camshaft.

Despite the thread drift, the current Anderson Style timers are quality

Since good New Day timers are getting available again, I wonder how they stand up to minor oil leaks from the cam seal?
