Good Moorning,

I'm an italian homebuilder, i'm restoring an old Jodel D9 Bebè.

I'm looking for antique(or replica) flight instrument (airspeed 0-180 kmh or 0-120mph, altimeter, vsi 0-1000/2000 feet)

can someone help me?

Thank you in advance

Mirko,

 

Have you tried the aviation instruments section on Ebay? Otherwise, the usual instrument supply companies in the USA always have a good assortment. 

 

Also, Aeromart at AirVenture is a great place for finding old instruments, tho' they may not necessarily be working.  Wentworth Aircraft (wentworthaircraft.com) come & buy a huge amount of instruments at Aeromart presumably to recondition them for resale.

 

Aeromart's website is http://www.aeromart.webs.com/

 

Good luck.  From what I've seen, half the fun is in the searching

Try Kirk McQuown, in the Los Angeles, California area.  He has access to a lot of old items.

G'day Mirko,

Have a look at Precision Dial in the USA :  http://www.precisiondial.com/index.asp

They can put an authentic antique or classic face on any modern instrument, including modern tacho's

Cheers
