I believe they are called hook-style push buttons. Are you talking about the ones on the tone controls? I know that Alan Jesperson at Great Northern has both the buttons and the very fragile fiber stems which they mount on. Larry Bordonaro may also have the buttons.<P>I have tried unsuccessfully to remove the old buttons from the fiber stems to install new ones. I always end up having to disassemble the whole assembly and replace the fiber stems too. Definitely not fun to do. Before ordering replacements, make sure that you can get the originals off without damaging the stems. <P>I also found that the color and appearance of the reproductions is too good, using just a few of the new ones with a bunch of faded and worn originals will stand out noticeably. <P>------------------<BR>Dennis

Thats correct the ones for the tone control. These pulled off easy. The curled ends on a few were broke off.<P>------------------<BR>Rodney

Hi,<BR> For my 15S372 I got both the buttons and stems from Larry, plus the volume knob and all the little plastic tone and station escutcheons. I'm pleased!<P>------------------<BR>
