Review
The guy on the trade counter was very friendly and helpful, also took cash 🙂
I paid £20 for a kit comprising drill, tap, two insertion tools and ten inserts, pretty good price,
A multitude of sizes and types stocked, including imperial.

Review
Paul does all his own re-winding (unlike most who advertise mag/dynamo re-builds) saving you double postage to a re-winder up country. He has done 4 mags and 2 dynamos for me all excellent. John Knibb.

Review
I have used Tony Cooper two or three times in the past for magneto overhaul on my various MACs and recommend him highly.
He does not advertise, does work for the major car and bike museums, and supplies parts to most of the
magneto repairers that advertise in the OBM. I also found his charges to be reasonable with a quick turn around.
