I have a Ponzol brass tenor mouthpiece that needs a new bite plate. I would prefer to have a real, original style black HR bite plate properly installed, and not use some sort of epoxy or other toxic stuff! Where can I have this done?

Unfortunately, from the FAQ on his web site:
4. I need a bite plate on a Ponzol mouthpiece replaced.
Bite plates on the new stainless steel and anodized mouthpieces can be replaced easily. I no longer have material to replace bite plates on the older brass mouthpieces.


If you still have the old bite plate and it is in good shape, it can be re-attached with some DAP or Loctite clear silicone - use the stuff that is safe for aquariums. That is what Peter recommended to me a couple years ago.

If you don't have the plate, I guess I would contact Mojo or EZ or one of the other re-facers around to see if they can do it.

I think acrylic is preferable to epoxy. The DG material was a dental acrylic but it is not being sold anymore. 3M DP-310 black does a nice job but can be a little tricky to work with.
