WILLYS MA REFLECTOR HOUSINGS

Post by soccergorilla » Thu Nov 29, 2018 12:38 pm

I need a few of them so I may make reproductions on our CNC lathe here at work. Do others need some? Post a message here if you do. I don't know how much they will cost because I don't know how many I would make yet. If you post I will have a number and then a rough idea. Thanks...Sean.

Hi Sean will they have the manufacturers stamp?

If so I'm probably in for 4 - depending on price :shock:

I was talking to Jimmy about it yesterday. If someone has an original housing I could borrow then I could copy them on a CNC machine here at work. Anybody......... Thanks...Sean.

Sean:
The last time MA reflector housings were made about 6 years ago, Robin Burfoot loaned an original DORAY TIGER-EY housing to Jim Schwartzkopf and Jim had a metal spinner guy make a large quantity. Maybe Robin’s son still has the original housing and could loan to you (photos below).

Here are photos of the DORAY TIGER-EY reproduction MA reflector housings that were made by a metal spinning process about 6 years ago.
