Early Electric Motor Driven Klaxon Horn question

Post by alsfarms » Sat Aug 24, 2013 8:29 am

I have a couple of early Klaxon Electric horns. One has a serial number of 1781 with the second horn a serial of 93596. I also have a couple of early teens projects. I already plan to use the lower serial number on the older car but it would be nice if someone here has information that would suggest what years related to a certain serial number series. Does anyone have serial number information? I would also assume that this type Klaxon horn would not have been used a lot before 1911 or 1912? The horns all show a Patn. date of 1908. Also, does anyone have spare parts for these horns. I have a bad vibrating plate in one horn.

Here is a picture of the Klaxon horn I am working on at present. Anyone have a vibrating plate for sale or have production figures for this style horn?

That broken plate you mentioned, couldn't you weld it together. Now if you couldn't weld it then some good machine might be able to make you a new one.
