Have a Hammarlund SP-600 JX-17 I just picked up recently. Needs a good cleaning, but works very well. However, the tuning dials are very faded and even missing some numbers in some areas.

Does anyone know of a source for replacement dials?
I don't really expect to find originals, but has anyone recreated the dials in a CAD program, or in some other printable format?

Cheers from a Newbie to the forum.

I bought a set a while ago for my radio but have not used them. I'll check on them tomorrow.

I'm pretty certain someone is making dials for the 600. Do a google search, and you'll most likely find one. A search for parts sources would most likely turn up some surplus dealers.

Good luck on your quest.

I got good service on some parts for my SX-42 from this fellow:

The SPs are at the top of the list on the left.

Steve, that notice has been up there for awhile and was there even when I got parts from him awhile back.

I hope he's able to help you.

I wonder if Radio Daze would consider adding the SP-600 dial to its inventory of repro dials. It's a pretty popular receiver.

That's nice work. Do you print it on adhesive paper? I have an SP-600 with a band spread dial that has delaminated in several places.

Do you have the original stored on line somewhere?

That 190KB jpeg isn't going to be of much help when you blow it up to the size needed. Further, you need to have the camera directly over the center of the artwork when you take the pic, an oblique shot such as you show, will not work.

I have a set of original dials. They show some yellowing (patina?) though.

Let me know if you are interested.
