Default Tuning knob wanted for Bush TR82/VTR103

Hi.
Does anyone have a replacement tuning knob for a Bush TR82 or a VTR103 radio (similar design knob)?
Many thanks
Mike

I think I've got one or two tucked away somewhere .... what type of bright do you need [chrome or brass] .... in fact why do you need one at all?

I'll send you a PM when I've un-earthed them!

Hi.
Many thanks for your reply.
I think that the Bush VTR103 (a.m and f.m radio) used a chrome centre, if I am not mistaken? I only mentioned TR because of the fact that most people are familiar with this type.
If you have a chrome centre tuning knob, I would be very interested.
Cheers
Mike

Hi Mike,

I've found them .... all are slightly cloudy [surprise! surprise!] .... but in truth not bad at all .... and not yellowed [that's why I've kept them]. No have a centre bright - but I can send you a near identical chrome one [that may need some careful 'radial filing' - I've done that loads of times].

The VTR 103 uses a chrome bright ...............

Send me a PM with your address and I'll pop it all in the post ....
