Prevailing opinion seems to be that the newly reproduced New Day timers do not give good service - has that problem been resolved ? If not, are there distinguishing features between the old originals and the reproductions ?
There have been several reproductions over the years. Some of them have earned a bad reputation for using inferior materials and wearing out quickly. The new ones from Tom Carnegie (Antique Auto Ranch) are said to be good, but I haven't tried one because I already have originals.
Four years ago I asked about how to ID the originals. Here's that discussion: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/343528.html
The Antique Auto Ranch versions are great. 509 . 535 . 7789
Speak softly in your best south-of-the-border accent and ask
for "Hooch". He'll get you squared away.
Thank you much, Steve and Burger!!
I thought he was Hatch!
If your south-of-the-border accent is good enough, it would actually
come out as "Ooch". The "H" would be undetectable.
Allo ? Aim calling for Seņor Ooch. Yis, do you have New Day Timer ?
Give it a shot.
Burger, you wouldn't be setting us up would you?
If not, then the next question should be, "Tank youse, is that Pesos or Amerikan dolla?"
Actually, it is Hutch.
Tip Top Timers version of the New Day timer is available through several vendors. Antique Auto Ranch, Lang's, Snyder's, Chaffin's, Mac's Birdhaven's etc. or you can call me direct, if you need to 509-220-0892. Just ask for hutch, thanks Burbber
Burger did set me up ! I called Hutch, and he did get me squared away. Very pleasant conversation. Thanks, fellers !!
I'm glad I've been around long enough to remember when you could buy new original New Day timers for $3 at swap meets in the original orange boxes. People are finally starting to realize what wonderful timers they are.
