Keeping myself busy with these old sets. Vintage pete this is the one I'm 3d printing the speaker grill for.
This is a set that was given to me. A extra knob for when the original volume had failed. A total rebuild and professional spray paint to complete the cabinet repairs.

Another grill that might be produced with 3D printing is the AWA 528MA. A particularly bad grill can be seen on ebay at the moment. Its width would probably be less than that of the Kriesler 11-7 grill so might be producible on the same printer. Problem would be finding a good grill to generate the data for the printer. I would be in the market for such a printed grill.

So the bottom line is, I would like to see a photo too.

Carl, Do not forget that I have an 11-7 here: I fix but rarely collect. This is one where I have been trying to get to a printer to duplicate its perfect Kriesler Scroll for another. However, things keep going wrong. Aside from radio fixing I am still waiting for the cylinder head for the tractor so that I can put that back together & then take the front end off to fix an oil leak.

The case is ok dial is missing but the grille is perfect. I see no issues in restoration & flogging it off. Its just a case of commercial viability.

Speaking of 3d printing, I just finished restoring a 1957 heater and one of the knobs is broken,I have an identical knob to copy and it's a very simple knob nothing fancy?

It has gotten to the point where a shattered irretrievable bone is like a machine part: We just go print, or use a CNC to make a new one.

Photos will go up shortly. I was in Melbourne for the auction so have been unable to receive e-mail.

Hey guys, if you could send me an accurately dimensioned sketch (can be hand drawn) I should be able to draw that up in Fusion360.
