Tagged: Eddystone; dial
Hi, I’m looking for a way to fix the sliderule dial plate on my Eddystone 680X. As you can see in the attached photo, some parts of the dial are in bad shape. Maybe someone has a good scan of the dial so I could find a way to reprint it, or even better, an old dial from a part donor. Any other suggestion is also welcome…
Have you tried Radiodaze. They may be able to help you. There is someone on Montreal who repairs dials, but I would have to dig up the information.
No luck with Radiodaze. I think the guy you are talking about in Montreal is Patrick Dufresne; I’ll get in touch with him
You may wish to contact Chris Pettit at the Eddystone User Group (EUG) in the UK to place a ‘wanted’ ad on that site. Chris can be contacted at ‘blueyonder dot co dot uk’. Also, I suggest you contact Ian Nutt, who has a lot of original Eddystone parts for sale. Ian can be contacted at ‘iandcnutt at msn dot com’. The EUG website URL is : https://eddystoneusergroup.org.uk/. Also, if you look under the ‘Restorations’ section of the EUG website you will find lots of articles on restoring Eddystone sets, some of which may be useful to you.
I hope this helps.
Gerry O’Hara (EUG Trustee)
Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll contact those persons
