I just came over from the HAMB when I saw a post about DzusFast's project.
My main need is for a good center plate. I have a complete unit that I ran on a drag
car in the 60's but the center plate is pretty marginal.
I'm sure I will probably need a new rotor soon too.
Poor pic's of the Model A drag car attached. Sorry they're so small.

If you've received your rotor, post a good comment. PM me with the bad comments....lol

Hope everyone's enjoying them

And I'm working on the centerplates now......why the heck not right?

I received mine order today and the rotors fit like a glove (no interference to a Bob Drake cap) and look great. My distributor needs to be timed so I will not have it in service for a while.

I supported Joe's effort from the start for several reasons. Here is fellow Fordbarner investing his time & money to fulfill a need many of us have, and the parts are made carefully right in the USA. If Drake try to do them you know where the stuff will come from. I would only buy products made in the USA for my H&C.
As for Spaddaro's comments, the H&C is time piece which some people don't understand, and that is it real value to many of us.

FUNNY thing is, my buddy that's helping me assemble has a degree from 'MIT', rocket science or something - Honest!

I ordered two H & C rotors from Joe last week. He is a great communicator and keeps on top of his orders. I received both rotors today and all I can say that I am impressed with the quality and workmanship. They fit perfectly and I will be able to restore the one I have as a spare and the other is on my 296" in my 40 coupe. I also run a H & C magneto [which I just had reworked]. Great job Joe!

"THANKS" Joe...... for the excellent NEW product that was much needed by H&C ignition owners. I just returned from a 3 day tour......totally 500 miles, using your NEW H&C rotor, and it performed perfectly!! (Mine rotor came Wed. morning) I have two H&C ignitions on two of my cars, and a 3rd as a backup. I will be buying 4 more rotors, before they are all gone. The fit of the rotor to the dist. shaft is perfect. Thanks for making a great product, .....for such a limited market. Paying $100 for marginal swap meet rotors is a thing of the past!! (I'm sure you won't be getting rich on this venture)!!
How about making the contact plate next? Whygoby Garage

Thanks for the replies... pretty cool seeing this whole process come together and if I can at least get enough out to pay for my expenses I'll do the centerplate too. Matter of fact, already started working on it - nothing wrong with being prepared right....
Thought I'd post a pi from a 'Happy' customer (Thanks!)

My pair of rotors arrived today Joe. They look great! Will be awhile before they are put into use, but didn't want to miss out on the limited production. Thanks for your investment and time to resurrect some of these H&C dizzys! Glad to support your manufacturing efforts. Hope the centerplate also becomes a reality and you beat the big boys to the USA made market before their offshore venture.

Yep! Edsel Ford came down to the Lincoln assembly line every morning right after his coffee, and bolted them in before each car was shipped! Noblesse Oblige in action, a real class act!
