Elroy's pop's model is almost identical to my dad's model -- bakelite housing and knobs, as well as the lack of a parallax mirrored scale. Unfortunately my dad's unit is just a decoration these days. -- along with many of his other late 50's early 60's electronics gear.

You know, Elroy, I read about bakelite repair not too long ago. Can't remember where. Dang the failing memory ticks me off.

I wanna say it was some guy dealing with restoring old telephones. But the site eludes me.  :(

If you've got all the small pieces it might be worth trying to find this info and see what the guy used.

Elroy appreciates the thought but this old soldier is retired
