Amek/Tac Bullet Knobs
« on: April 20, 2010, 05:58:45 AM »
Hello,

I'm in the restoration for a Tac Bullet 10/4/2 console. They are several pot knobs missing.
I've wrote to Amek, they send me to AML. I wrote to AML they send me to Farnell, but without part number, I can't found the good reference.
Is somebody know the way to buy knobs?

Regards,

Marc

Send Colin at AML a picture and see if he has a lead.

They look like some of the clear ones Jeff makes at classic API

They are no longer manufactured.... the best thing to do is just get 4mm shaft collet knob instead.... www.canford.co.uk sell 4mm collet sifam knobs.

Thanks Colin.
I will still search for NOS original ones for a moment.
Sifam will be the "B plan".

Here is the clear knobs Jeff is selling. If your after a couple then your best bet is to look elsewhere, but Jeff may be able to help you as well.

It's close to the design but with out the taper and collet and I believe Jeff sells a color insert.

Thanks.
The Sifam seems to have a closer shape, and with a gray color spray it can make the illusion...
I continue the investigations  ;)
