Jensen 50 Parts

Hi mates, I am looking for a Jensen 50 stack and a power cable. Please contact me if you have any or know of a source. Thanks

Sorry I can't help Mike, but this is from Rog. By the way, new purchase or fixing up one you already had?

Simplest job of all Marc and the first thing I did, the chimney is nothing other than a 1.25 inch nickel plated brass drain tube for under a sink, found at my local ACE hardware.  It had a curved part (trap) on one end and I just cut it to the proper length removing the trap part, then flared the top end of the cut pipe using the head of a large ball peen hammer tapping the flat part of the hammer with a piece of two x four lumber. 

In less than 15 minutes I had a regulation size Jensen 50 chimney  :lol:
I wish all repairs or replacements could be so easy!

Power cord depends on age to a degree.
Cloth or rubber?


Pigtails for heaters or the long cord?




If this is for the #50 from Nick and Ellen Low you need a black rubber power cord.


Here is a similar #50 from 1979:

Nick, Bruce, & Gil, thank you all for the reply. Yes itís for the 50 that returned home to the US. I thought that  these parts could be obtained from Jensen since they are no different than the newly offered ones. I contacted Jensen a month ago; they mentioned that they have it, and asked to wait for a phone call which never came. Now I see their announcement and I understand the situation. I was trying to outsource from Jensen to get original parts. Yes Gil, itís the long rubber cord.

Mike, Jensen no longer sells the correct cord and plug for your late 70's #50.
The cords with plugs they now provide are 3 wire with a ground post.


This is what the cord should look like:


(without the cracks, of course)


I replaced it with a cord purchased from a hardware store and a plug from a place that has lamp restoration parts and supplies.

Thanks Gil for the photo. I guess that I will be making one too
