Post by TheSaintDiscJockey » Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:50 am

Is anybody repairing horns? I reached out to several folks who were, but aren't anymore. Many thanks for any contact information.

What kind of horn, and what's wrong with it? Maybe it's a simple problem you could fix yourself.

According to your profile you have a 1920 T which would have used a magneto horn. Is that the one you need help with?

Bill Randall-The Horn Shop, 7129 Rome-Oriskany Rd, Rome NY 13440. three one five, double 3 six, double 8 four one. I've met him at car shows and his work appears first rate. Unless he has retired, that is where I'd begin. Best, jb

I have a magneto horn.
I need someone to look at it, specifically to be able to get inside, without me damaging it due to rusty screws, etc.

By the way, I contacted both places this weekend. Both are no longer in business.

Hate to hear that the guys who were doing the horn repair are out of business. Hopefully others are doing it.

There is no great demand for magneto horns and you could likely buy a nice one for what it would cost to repair yours.
