Is there anyway to repair cracked buttons and knobs on radios? I have 1958 Golden Hawk radio (actually two) One the buttons just fell apart trying to remove them. Knobs came off okay.. Other radio works etc... buttons etc are aged cracked... can they be refinished some way still on the radio?...I don't want to try and remove them for fear of ruining them.
Thanks, Don.

You should be able to buy replacements from one of the SDC vendors, S.I. or SASCO. I got replacements for myne from S.I.

I checked the vendors....didn't find the knobs and buttons though.
I checked sasco, si and others.

Any ideas??

Check with some of the vendors who advertise radio restoration in Turning wheels. Ten years ago I got new buttons for my 51 from Foster.

From this very own SDC website....
(don't know if they have the parts, though)

(copy of ad)
Have fully reconditioned radios for most 1941 to 1966 Studebaker Philco and Delco units. Also have replacement parts including tubes, vibrators, knobs, PB caps and dials for most models. Can redo or exchange. Prices from $75 to $450 for complete radios, including warranty. Also have new, used and reproduced parts for 1947 to 1964 Studebakers, including Avanti.
