I'm attempting to finish my Philco 80 Colonial clock radio project. I bought it decades ago and it was missing the pillar and scroll
topper piece. Wondering if anyone out there in radioland can make a tracing of the scroll part of the topper - basically the middle
scroll design between the two posts that hold the finials on either side. By my estimation the two side posts are 1 inch square each.
(Please correct me if I'm wrong). The thin flat wooden platform on top of each side pillar seems to be 1.25" square and about 1/16"
thick. The scroll "wave" appears to be made from 3/4" thick wood. The entire topper should be about 13.5 inches wide and made from
3/4 inch wood. What I don't have is a good measurement of the height of the topper piece.

I'd be glad to pay for your time and effort if you could provide a good trace of the topper and a few good measurements...metric or american is fine.
If anyone could provide a good trace on grid paper - Super! My clock is the model 80 version but I believe the 551 has the same measurements for
cabinet and topper. Above is a photo of what I need template and measurements of. Thanks in advance!

Thanks sdradioman! I was going to attempt make a silicon mold and cast them in resin but
Renovated Radios would be just a cheap without all the effort. Too bad they don't repro the
entire topper...
