Looking for this glass to finish up a restoration. It's not a full round piece although that may have been how it started out when they made them.

Buy a round one and have a glass shop cut it for you.

If you have a round dish cut, the edge won't be planar like that appears to be.

I thought about doing that as a last resort Stan. However, I have had problems with the newer clock glass being too convex for these older radios.

Graylox, the straight side of the glass is still convex and not flat which is why I think Zenith originally did what Stan suggested.

Try www.norkro.comm, they specialize in convex glass, may have something you can use.

Hi 45:
I'm pretty sure I have one of these in my stash at home. At work now, but will check when I get home this evening and let you know.
