I saw a link the other day here or on AHEXP for a supplier that had all sorts of interesting correct gauges for BE's including the original correct style combo gauge. And of course I can't find the link I thought I saved. Anyone recall the posting? And the link. Thought suppliers name began with F.....

The firm that currently owns the Smiths copyright and produces "modern" Smiths gauges is Caerbont (link below). I don't know if they are who you are thinking of but you can view their main catalog(s) online. They may have others not shown.

Somewhere online I once found a document explaining how Smiths came to own "British Jaeger". Though related in the "early days" of motoring, British Jaeger and Jaeger (on the continent) were not the same company at the time of Bugeye.

I have not seen anyone offering "new" British Jaeger gauges but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Send Caerbont and email and see what they have to say about British Jaeger.
