Forum rules


If your thread or post disappears - read the rules again - no warnings or explanations will be given when threads or posts are deleted.

The following requirements must be followed when advertising personal antique radio / TV / audio / phono items (such as discussed in the forums here) for sale in the classifieds forum:

  • TITLE--Titles must START with: FS (when selling) or WTB (when wanting to buy) or Trade or Free at the beginning of the title.
  • PRICE--FS posts must have an "asking" price and offers may be sent by PM. Are you parting something out? ... price each major part (not things like screws and nuts)
  • LOCATION--There must be a location somewhere in the ad or the members profile (City & State or Zip Code are the minimum requirement). This includes WTB ads.
  • Discussion -- This is NOT a discussion forum. If you're not buying or supplying or suggesting a relevant solution, don't post - send a Private Message. Comments on pricing will be deleted.
  • Ads are limited to two per day, and may not be bumped sooner than 7 days after the last post to the thread.
  • No outside sales links are allowed other than to pictures of actual items being sold. No links allowed to eBay, Craigslist etc.
  • First to post to an item for sale stating "I WILL TAKE IT" it is first in line. Subsequent claims will be followed in the order they are posted. Claims to "Take it" can be conditional on unknowns such as shipping costs.
  • Any "PM sent" posts without posting a reason for the PM will be deleted as they are meaningless to anyone else reading the thread.
  • Once a deal is made, edit the title to say so and the thread will be locked

I am looking to buy two Atwater Kent cathedral model 627 knobs. They are the lower two knobs on the front panel. See this link: http://radioattic.com/item_sold.htm?radio=0960518

Thanks!

Joe

Joe,
The good news is that the 2 in your attached picture a pretty easy to find and a lot of people use them for the 627.
The bad news is that those are not actually the correct ones.

I'm pretty sure these are the right ones.

I have a couple of original 627's and they both have knobs like these.

Here's mine. I bought it at a church auction in the late 1950s and am confident the knobs are original.

Wow Alan, you have owned that Atwater Kent longer than I have been alive, and I am no youngster.

Alan's 627 is correct.

Cost me $1.25. Would have been $.75 but my brother was bidding too, not knowing I was.
