I need four (4) of these for a couple of Wenger's Super Receiver Radios, Mfd by Electric Equipment Company in Lancaster, PA in about 1923. Doesn't have to be a Federal Brand.
Resistance is approximately 250 ohms. I measured about 10 sections to arrive at this total.
Existing Units are Federal No. 24
Overall Diameter is 2-1/8"
Mounting screw spacing is 1-1/4", for #6 screws.
Shaft hole diameter is 1/4". Shaft and Mounting holes are all in line with each other.

Note: I call this a Potentiometer rather than a Rheostat, since all three connections are used. If this should be called a Rheostat, just let me know. You can also see in the picture all the various sections of broken wires.

I will be at Renninger's if anyone would have these, by chance.

Thanks
John N3MUN
