I'd like to know whether anyone can recommend a good Model T cam re-grinder. I know Chaffin's and Ford-n-More grind cams, but are there some other good options?

Every cam grinder will produce a cam that looks good. Its hard to find someone who re-grinds Model T cams properly. A properly re-ground T cam will produce better power. Try Specialty Machine in Plymouth, WI. They make new T cams and also properly re-grind T cams.

Well, both Chaffins and Ford-n-more knows what they're doing, so no reason to risk it by going elsewhere?

In the Dallas, Texas area as Ted said, Norfleet Machine does a fine job. I have one of his reground cams in use in my Model T now and doing fine. I have been to his shop and seen his operation. Very old school, but he's been in business a long time and knows what he's doing. Most everyone in the old car hobby in our area knows him. He has an amazing collection of cam profiles for just about anything with wheels on it.

I've had really great success with Glenn Chaffin's reground camshaft. They perform very well,good in the hills good top end,no guessing.

Our cams are designed to give you both a very good low end for climbing hills and an improved high end for high speed. They have been optomized for street driving and perform very well in the hills. My 1913 will climb a moderate hill in high gear while increasing speed and will go 50 MPH on the flats. That's too fast foe me in a Model T!
