Recently acquired a GE model L642, which came sans the flipper dials for tone and band switching. Here's a scan of the shafts; they would need to protrude back somewhat, and grasp around the square mechanism.

Any advice on where to find them (yeah I know, good luck eh) would be appreciated!

Ed at www.renovatedradios.com has them. They are properly called knobs, not dials. Were used on several of the L models of 1942.

Thx for the information, Mark! He doesn't have my model listed though;
Quote:
G.E. knob used for tone control on various models. Sits under the KGE-1 knob.

I think the models below are correct.
Ivory used on models: L-613, L-621, L-632
Brown used on: L-631, L-632, L-652, L-633
Red used on: L-624, L-660


Would you know if they all used the same mechanism?
