Default Pye TVT equipment Knobs & Buttons for MCR21

Our restoration project for the BBC Outside Broadcast Van is going well And we had it's first public outing last weekend at the Goodwood Revival Event.

This was most successful with a great many visitors showing great interest. However there is much yet to be done, and we still need to find a large number of items! If you are able to help.

We need a number of these black knobs that Pye used on TV camera and other equipment in the 1960s. There is also a requirement for some round clear perspex buttons as per the photo. These are a bit earlier from the 1955-63 period.

We are looking for the exact type to be historically correct.

Our Trust, the BTTT will be having a display stand at the forthcoming RetoTech. This would be a convenient place to meet and explain our work. We look forward to welcoming you.

Quite a lot of my stock of components came from Pye TVT when they were taken over by Varian, and I thought I might have some of those knobs. I've just checked and I don't have any, sadly. I do remember them being used on some 842844 monitors which have long since found new homes in the vintage TV community.

Could these be candidates for 3D printing? I have no personal experience myself.

One of our volunteers did have a go at 3D printing, it's hard to get the correct detail finish and then there is the locking screw to consider.

Thanks
