Default Bush RP50.

I've been working on an RP50 for the last few days, it's in exeptional condition apart from a damaged platter mat (being sorted).

The other thing is a missing silver control knob centre, so I wondered if I could make one, so I got an ali can and cut a piece out and carefully made a disc and filed it to the exact size, then hot glued it to a flat headed bolt. I placed this in a drill and spun it up using fine sandpaper working from the outside in, the results are really good. A little heat afterwards releases the disc, fit to the knob, nice job,only took about 30 mins.

This is the kind of resourcefulness that can make all the difference to a project!

...No, it's not supposed to pick up the World Service, it's not a radio!
