Default Knobs and pushbuttons wanted

Hi, I'm working on restoring a HMV 658 radio. Two of the control knobs ('Tuning' and 'Tone') are damaged, one pushbutton is missing and another two cracked. I've tried repairing the knobs with Araldite but without success. Does anyone have suitable replacements in their spares box?

Thanks in advance

Tim

Tim,

I have a tatty but fairly complete one of these. It seems a shame to break it for spares but...

Send me PM please and I'm sure we can sort something out.

Cheers,

Nick.

Thanks Nick I'll see if something else turns up rather than break up a complete set. PM sent

Tim

I've offered Tim my complete set, subject to him having space for it and being able to arrange some means of transport.

Otherwise, his request still stands.

Nick.

Failing finding replacements plastic padding would be good for filling in chips. The repair would need touching up with the correct colour though which would be tricky to get a match.
