Default Pye P76RG broken glass

Hello

I've just had a major disaster and broken the glass on my Pye P76RG. I know this is a very long shot, does anyone have a spare, or a scan which i could get printed onto glass?

Even better would be someone who has the complete radiogram they don't want, as I only had the radio section in a separate wooden box.

Cheers

Andy

Sadly, the P76 and P76RG (I assume that's the same as the P76G) are different animals. The RG version has the tuning scale rotated by 90 degrees, so the lettering will be also. The scale-glass also looks to have different dimensions.

Not relevant here, but they also have very different circuits - the P76RG has a push-pull output stage where the P76 is single-ended.

Pity it doesn't suit. Would have made a nice coincidence!

Yes the 2 receivers are very different.

I am now redrawing the glass on my PCB CAD system. Its a big job as there are lots of station names to be placed on it. I'm hoping that I can then get it printed onto clear acrylic, the main problem being that the printing is in white ink. If I can't get it printed in white, then I will settle for black.
