Does anyone have a good source for parts for 50s/60s era Webcor reel machines? Someone's asking me for parts for his 2110, and I realized that [i]my[/i] only source for parts is buying another machine as a parts donor.

Tried Googling, but mostly finding informational-only sites or dead links, or eBay.

Thanks in advance.

Or you might start with the parts you need. But you are right about maybe having to buy a hangar queen uh.. shelf queen.

I don't have a want list at the moment--but someone had emailed me asking for parts, and I was curious if there were a Webcor parts source already on the net. Doesn't look like it. I suggested he ask on the WTB forum here. ;)

It's unlikely that there are any. Even back in the day, repairmen had to order set specific parts like those directly from the manufacturer and no one would have carried inventory in their shop because there simply wasn't any call for them. That makes it far less likely that someone could amass an inventory of those parts by buying out closed up repair shops or even parts distributors.

I'd expect that most of the specialized proprietary parts for brands like Webcor are all but unobtainable today unless you strip out another identical unit to get them.
