Vintage 1946 Sonora AM Radio Restoration – 10 – Dial Scale Pointer


Dial Scale Pointer:

Before getting power to the unit and giving it a try, I decided to at least add some pointers to replace the pointers that had been broken off the dial scale pointer previously. I used some small brass tubing and cut two pieces the same length that were about the same size that the pointers were originally. I had to guess a bit here based on the photos that I had seen of the same radio with the pointers still in tact. I sanded one end of each of the pieces at an angle to give it a point then I used some 5 minute epoxy to fix them into place on the back side of the center ring of the old dial scale pointer. A fairly easy fix.
