I think Esiemann has been obsolete longer than most of us have been living, that said, you are in the right part of the country to find one,

Eisemann Magneto Corporation was formed, and produced it's first magnetos in 1919. The Eisemann Corp disappeared in 1946, when it merged with Jack & Heintz Precision Industries.
What was probably the last magneto-building contract for Eisemann was building flywheel magnetos for Maytag washing machine motors.
Eisemann fell victim to technological improvements in the electrics and electronics field, and couldn't adapt to the new electrical technologies, that effectively made magnetos, as an ignition source for IC engines, obsolete.
