I’ve got a Philco 41-226 that has the tenite grill that is warped. I remember seeing new reproduction replacements for sale a few years ago, but in searching around, I can’t find anything. Does anyone have a link/name for someone selling replacements? Thanks!

David

That picture was of the "good" one I have. The other one I need to replace looks a little like melted ice cream :cry:

The guy who made the Philco bezels for that model was Kirk Laffman. I have lost track of him. His website is down. He had them in different colors. They were made using a 3D 'copier' and you could see the scan lines in the product, but they are WAY better than the decayed originals. That bezel was used 1940-1946. The post war ones are ok, the earlier ones decay badly. Maybe someone here knows him, I think he was from NJ as I saw him at the Kutztown Radio shows.

Kirk is a frequent poster here and on the Philco Phorum. His screen name is Oldrestorer. Don't know if he has any left that was a few yrs back.

Stay away from that Kirk Guy.. He is a real moody sucker :lol:

I no longer sell them but i do have a broken one you can have for $30.00. It i a very clean break and can be krazy glued. They are simply spray painted to preferred color. They do not have the writing on the grill though as your picture shows.

Here it is..

HEy Kirk, sorry I had a brain fart and forgot I had talked with you briefly about the fact that YOU made those Philco faceplates ! Eh, old brain is getting unreliable !
If possible you should crank up another run and also sell those here and on Ebay. I would guess you could sell 50 or so within 2 years as there are so many of those radios out there. Make them in the tan/brown color as those are the worst ones from before WW2. you have the 'corrected' data already worked out as I recall you said to run them.
