Eddystone 830 Receiver – TUNING and INCREMENTAL knobs wanted

September 03, 2020 By: chris Category: Wanted


Tony in Melbourne Australia has recently purchased a very nice Eddystone 830 receiver which originally came from a Government auction 10 years ago. Oddly, it has two knobs that just do not look original –Tony has no idea how they ended up on the set. See photo of the non-original knobs circled in red. He is looking to buy the correct knobs if anyone has them for sale. A quick look would suggest that these knobs were not only used on the 830’s but other models as well, so perhaps there might be a few floating around that someone is willing to part with.

The two knobs are the ‘TUNING’ and the ‘INCREMENTAL’ knobs. Black with satin metal insert as shown on the second photo. Tony is located in Melbourne Australia. Contact him via email  tony@tzed.com.au if you can help him.

S659/670 handle screws wanted

November 04, 2019 By: chris Category: Wanted

Nick Van Vonno in Melbourne, Florida finally located a S.659/670 to replace the one he let get away a long time ago. It was shipped from UK and arrived in pretty good shape, but one of the handles was broken off.  This involved breakage of both screws, which Nick considers was  a carefully thought out way of limiting the damage to the front panel. The handle on Nick’s set is not damaged, however he can’t locate the two brass replacement screws so is appealing for help from the Eddystone User Group to find him some. If you can help Nick contact him on nvv@cfl.rr.com
