Radio Knob Brights
 
2 Attachment(s)
Whilst recovering buttons on a chair I am upholstering an idea came into my head, the 19mm self cover buttons from a remnant shop are exactly the same profile and size as the button brights on my roberts radio, so with a careful cutting with a dremel or similar to remove back would make replacement brights. I suppose you could go further and plate them gold, just a thought.

Another source of brights is Tactile Switches. Theses 12mm switches reveal 9.5 / 10mm bronze coloured disk. Using a small jewellers screwdriver lever the ring out of the top of switch. Disk's have a slight bevel. I have some switches to spare if anyone needs the brights I can offer some for postage.

to add to this, does anyone know a way to replace the 'bush' style knob brights as fitted to the DAC90A? Not a disc, but a sort of ring.

I would be really keen to get some of these, will happily pay postage or can you reveal your source?

Hi. Is it the switches you require? Or the brights inside? I can take out the brights if that is all you need. Also how many? I can send say 6 switches or 6 brights for postage. What your address ?

Cheers, John.

John can you please post the link to those switches? The brights will come in useful and I don't want to deplete your stock

Just to be clear my brights are 9.5mm dia, a lot smaller than the Roberts sets need. I can send 6 brights for postage.

John.
