Any suggestion for who to use to repair/restore my brass John Brown Model 15 headlamps? They are in pretty rough shape and I don't trust myself with repairing stress cracks in brass.

Rick Britton Ceresco Michigan has done several complete sets of Model T Era lamps. Good quality brass work isn't very economical unfortunately. Contact me off line and give you his contact info. Respectfully Mark Eyre.

Bill:
I can provide you with a name who you do not want to deal with. PM me if unable to work this through others. Rick Britton's work is Concours premium quality, where unfortunately his wait list and rates reflect this.
Regards,
Scott

Rick Britton has done a number of brass lights for me. He is a true artist and his work is second to none. Highly recommended.

Bill, check with Mark Metzler. He restored my crushed and cracked 1907 marine searchlight fast, perfectly and cheaply. Turned it into an absolute work of art!

Howard, his site says he's a brass instrument guy - can he restore headlamps?

I recently contacted Mark Metzler and he indicated he is so backed up on musical instruments that he is not taking anything else.

Bill, isn't your computer showing my 2 pictures?

He restored my light in April and I'd call and ask him if I were you.

Hello Bill,
A gentlemen by the name of Bill Glass restored a set of John Brown Model 15 for my 1910 and did a wonderful job! Send me an email if you would like his contact info.

I have known Bill for many years and he has done lamp and other restoration work including the original lamps of the six new "1914 Fords". He is also handy with rebuilding early 4 or 5 ball carburetors.

Do you have Bill Glass' contact info. I am needing to have my 5 ball carburetor rebuilt.
