Does any one have a centrifugal contact for a 1510? Also red fiber washers for the centrifugal plates?

Used an old clip board back to make a replacement.  Removed the contacts and used the old base to trace where to cut.  Not an easy job, but it worked just like new.

Gordon Sommers has made the small washers. If not in directory send me pm and will give you his email.

For chipped insulators I have backed with fish paper. You can also make new insulator with vulcanized fiber.

I also could use one of the fiber washers.

Hi Tom, what method do you use to remove the contacts from the old base? Are the pegs pressed in? I’m wanting to try the method you mentioned but need to retain as much of the base as possible for tracing. Also, how much tolerance is available on the outside diameter of the base? I was thinking a slightly larger base would increase the strength near the bolt holes...

Scot,

So sorry, but it was a long time ago, I did not make notes, and I do not remember the specifics.  I did however trace the base.  So if you need a copy, let me know.

That might save me a few busted knuckles
