Default Re: Improvising with Household Items.

I've just spent some time on a Hacker Sovereign II which was very deaf on LW and MW.
The problem turned out to be that all the rubbery bits down the sides of the IF tuning slugs had perished allowing all the IF stages to go off tune.
I managed to find some thin elastic thread in my wife's sowing kit. I ran a length of the thread down each former,this made up the slack and after realignment all is well.
