Hi Lewis, i was speaking to a chap the weekend he had his ek rebuilt last week new coils condensor etc £150.00, it might be worth you giving vintage magnetos a call and asking them about yours, his was done within a week,

yes Lewis i have,they came from an eBay seller called frappi.
they were $90 if i remember correctly..he sells the whole kit for the EK mags...
check it out...but beware you will have to pay import tax,and that can be costly
if i was you i would contact martin and let them do it..
it will be cheaper and quicker..but its up to you Lewis..
his name is marc..i will PM you his email address...
regards..mike...

That's very true isn't it. Shame my mum isn't making magneto coils anymore where she worked years ago. Proberly could rewind them if we had the machines and tools.
