    I am attempting to rewire the operating switch for a GE S-22. It has 4 small holes in the wood that is sandwiched between a metal bracket. It does not come apart and the 4 small nails/screws appear to be pressed in place.
    I’m not sure what my options are as far as connecting new wiring to this switch. Do I just cut the wood away?
    I would appreciate any suggestions.

    What about drilling out the rivets that hold the wood in place then either using new rivets or gluing the block in place? I suppose it depends on how visible the repair will be, I can’t tell from the radio museum photos.

    Hi Robert: I finally found some information about the radio and it looks like it is the power switch, on the side of the radio?

    How think is the wood that the switch has to go through?

    Here is what you get when you have drilled out the two rivets. To access the contacts you need to pull out two more rivets indicated by arrows then you should be able to solder new wires. Before you reassemble, clean the contacts.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I drilled out the old rivets and can now access the part to solder on new wires.
