Does anyone know where I can purchase a dial pointer for a Motorola 79XM21 or 79XM22?
A alternative would be to try an make one, If someone maybe had one that they could tell me what the thread size would be then I could purchase a small screw and cut the head off then attach a hollow tube of some material and make it into a pointer.

I have attached a photo of this model that I found on the web that shows you the dial pointer.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you, Jim.

Maybe try this: ... ob/3224787 ... z/50425934 ... SQT4WY5995

Just an idea. You could drill a small hole in the switch cover, stick the toothpick through it, and glue it in on the inside of the cover. Then, you could spray paint the whole thing with gold paint.

No matter how smart you are, there is always someone smarter than you.
