I recently picked up an Empress 55 Swiss Chalet radio and have a few questions -

1 - Are there any repro dial scales available?.... mine is shrunken beyond salvage. (Even a sharp picture of a good one will be useful.)

2 - What were the original knobs? The few radios I've seen online all seem to have different knobs.

3 - The dial light (blown) in this chassis is a 44. Is that correct? (Wondering if that's what shrunk the celluloid dial.)

Any answers, suggestions will be greatly appreciated...

Thanks Greg! That will certainly come in handy.

Anyone else know about the knobs or dial scale?
