Not sure what overhaul costs are currently but I bet for not to much more money you can get an electronic ignition. It's pretty hard to justify mags anymore.

A friend of mine bought Bendix mags, and wires for his Luscombe from Aircraft Magneto Service. Months after the Bendix warranty expired he had the impulse coupling fail. He contacted them and was told since the mags came through their shop they were covered under their extended warranty. They promptly repaired the mag at no cost to him AND paid the return shipping!

Yep, I have had 6 mags done, both 500hr inspections as well as rebuild. My IA and two others I know uses them exclusively and have never had any issues.
Price was always the going rate and a time or two less than quoted.
This father son team use to be at Boeing Field in Seattle for years and have a great reputation.

Chad
Just got some Bendix mags back from the shop for their 500 hr inspection/OH.

Done by:
www.aircraftignitionservices.com
in Honey Grove, TX which is NE of Dallas. Very nice folks to work with.

They did a great job and the mags looked and worked like new.
