All, here's my first experiment using 3D printing. I just restored a Zenith 7H922 that was missing the emblem. I found a photograph of an emblem and my neighbor put it into his modeling software. He then sent the file to shapeways.com for printing. Surprisingly it came out pretty good ,especially since the design was based on a photo.
Here it is.
Keith

You could also have it printed in metal and with some post manufacture processing could polish it to look like brass or gold if desired.

Hmmmm,
Are these that hard to find?
If someone has one I will make a mold. Is it 2 pins or 1?

I make the RCA ones so these should be easy.
