Can anyone help me, please? My late father had a Taylor Director I desktop weather center ( http://www.appleridgeevents.com/480/27.jpg ) from the early 1970's. These sold for about $30 back in the day and it was always one of those neat things about Dad and his office. My Dad knew everything. Which cars leaked oil and which ones wouldn't start. How to keep a couple-dozen people motivated to do their best. How to fix a bicycle so the chain doesn't come off, and even what the weather was going to be tomorrow. How cool was that, right? Well, I acquired one of these little jewels and it really brought back the memories. Beautiful walnut wood on the box, fine brushed aluminum face and three little gauges that deciphered the weather, just like I remembered. Except that mine doesn't, anymore. I figured based on the construction of this machine that Taylor must have had a very good reputation in their chosen field and would probably still be in business and it seems I am mostly right. There are Taylor weather instruments on eBay and elsewhere going back a century or more. But the current company seems to have little to do with its storied past. It seems like it's all digital and plastic and imported, today. I wrote to them, asking about repair options and got back only a terse reply: "Sir, we will be unable to help you, sir." But it seems hard to believe that in an age when we can recreate Studebakers and there are hundreds of people out there hand-crafting their own guitars that there isn't someone out there repairing old barometers and thermometers and such. Especially for a brand like Taylor. Can anyone here recommend someone who can do this, for me? I look at this thing and smile every time, thinking about Dad and his. But I know I'd feel better if it actually worked. Thanks!
