Default Wanted: Replica Buttons Quad 22 Control Unit

Hello, I am looking for someone willing to produce replica plastic push-buttons for my Quad 22 Control Unit. Over the years the original plastic has not weathered well and the consistency now is crumbly cheese! It occurs to me this sort of thing could be 3-D printed. As you can see from the photos, there are 2 white buttons and 4 maroon. Can anybody help with this, at reasonable cost? Cheers, Jerry.

Ha! I have exactly the same problem on my Quad 22 with the added attraction that the remaining ones ping off across the room when another button is pressed.

I will be very interested in the progress of this request - most of these units must have a similar problem by now.

Best regards,

Paul M

Hi Paul.

Yes, I suspect a number of people might be interested. I've looked online and there are companies in Bristol that will 3-D print bits and pieces such as impossible-to-buy car parts. However I have been unable to get an order of cost without sending in an RFQ. One suspects that very small quantities would not be cost effective from a commercial organisation hence my post. However, if nobody comes up trumps with a home scanner/printer then I'll send off an RFQ to Bristol and let you know. If enough people were interested, and prepared to share the cost, it might be doable.

Cheers, Jerry

Hello.
BenDijkman&Co can make knobs for you.
We have made allready these knobs:
http://www.bendijkman.nl/index.php/k...quad-knobs-set

If there is a common order for at least 20 knobs, we can make a batch of these knobs.
The visual quallity is same as a perfect Original, we only use far more durable
material. Different colour knobs is no problem.
However: The Original knobs have all de-coloured differently through the years.
If you chance the old knobs for new ones, it is the best to do them all.

Best wishes for 2018 !
Perhaps we come in contact.
Please do not use the webformular for ordering: It's not working!
Please use: Info@bendijkman.nl

Here a big picture of out quallity of these knobs

Hello Chas.

That saves lot shippin costs from Holland to England.
