If you mean the little piece of spring steel that presses against the shaft, I clip pieces out of an old coil spring. If you take apart a tape measure, you'll find one in the center.

Bob,

Back from your first post, down in picture 6; The knob I circled could very well be one of the small front knobs missing from my new Arvin 4080T.

I know it's a big pain to go digging, but if some time you run across that one in the picture, I'd like to see if it would fit my set. I'm missing both the left and right smaller front knobs from my sets front controls. They look identical, but the on-off/volume (left side) has a smaller shaft than the channel side shaft. I'm also missing the small vert-hold knob from the back, and the metal back of the set.

The picture of the Hospix version of this set was posted by John Folsom over on ARF. This is the best picture I have of what the front knobs -should- look like. I'm assuming Johns are original.

If anyone has or knows of any spare parts, I'd be very delighted to find them.

Thanks much

Kevin

Hi,
I noticed that you have some of the control knobs for Zenith controls. (The ones that are behind the metal door under the crt.) What would you want for those?

Sorry, just noticed the last two posts. I'll see if I can dig up those knobs.

Here's another batch I just got in (click for larger version).

I think the two cast aluminum knobs in the upper-left are for a Stromberg Carlson. Just above is a UHF knob with vernier drive that might be for a Predicta.

Long shot, but I need one for my DeWald 630 clone. Almost looks like a radio knob.

Sorry, I don't have any. They have a longer shaft than the very similar looking console version and are hard to come by.

I have no idea what they look like - take a look at the photos and let me know if you see them.

I might have one or at least something that looks very similar.

The thing with the two color wheels is the surround for the tint and color controls on an early RCA color set. I know the CTC-7 uses it for one.

So it is, I'll have to look at mine and see what shape it's in, I claim Dibs on that, unless I don't need it or someone else dibbed it first.

Looks like mines in good shape so I don't need it after all.

Kevin and Bob, here are better photos of the knobs from my Arvin 4080T. Hope this helps.

Kevin, I have a junker 4080T, if there is something you are looking for, maybe I can help. No back cover, very poor condition cabinet, but chassis intact, as I recall. Would have to dig it out of the attic to reacquaint myself with the particulars.

Bob, I'm looking for a set of knobs for my family's original 1951 Magnavox. It's in a French provincial console and the knobs were originally a dark honey color, but until I find the correct knob, it looks like you have a dark bvrown version of the channel selector. Can I buy that one from you? Also would like to buy the surround knob if you have it. Please let me know how to proceed.

The knob I see that you have is in this photo:

The knobs I'm looking for are the ones in the attached picture.
