Zip reed valves
« on: January 21, 2014, 07:15:34 pm »
I finally got around to working on my Zip.  Everything was going good until I removed the reed box.  All the reeds are bent.  Does anybody know where I could find a good used box?  Or maybe drill out the rivets and replace the reeds.

I think it's "custom saw parts"  or something like that on flea bay .Bryce out in Washington state . Probabley has a warehouse full of parts to fit just about anything.Scott in Vermont ,"Chainsawr " could have a set of reeds too . For that matter I've made reeds using steel shim stock .

Thanks Al.  I'll call Bryce and see what He's got.  Chainsawr had one but it's already gone.  I might try that steel shim stock if I can't come up with anything.
