Default upright commutator source

Is there a supplier that carries the commutator for the 1/2 HP upright engine?
Thanks Dennis

I am not aware of anyone making the correct phenolic commutators at the moment. Mr. Northway's are cheap plastic. I got burned on them a few months back. I found a source of the correct material (not cheap) and plan to make a few for my engines. I can make a couple extra if anyone is interested.

Mark always used to have good quality 1/2hp and 1hp commutators. Ill bet he can set you right up.
