Attaching mounting rings to old Oris 150 (BD-Design)

by GC, Wednesday, June 08, 2005, 00:23 (4607 days ago)

I have a very early set of the Oris 150 horns with the little brass studs extending from the mounting ring to fit small holes in the horns. One of my horns is no longer held in place by the brass studs. Should I attach the mounting rings to the horns with an adhesive, and if so what sort?

Thanks,

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

I have a very early set of the Oris 150 horns with the little brass studs
extending from the mounting ring to fit small holes in the horns. One of
my horns is no longer held in place by the brass studs. Should I attach
the mounting rings to the horns with an adhesive, and if so what sort?

That is a long time ago that those Nylon rings were used. What you could try is to take the brass studs out (these are nails) and replace them for ones with a thicker head and cement them with 2-component glue. This will still not be the most strong binding though (Nylon does not glue well).

You could order the newer made rings (20 Euro plus shipping) and glue these with the supplied glue to the horns. Then the whole construction is much stronger...

Ciao,

Bert
