i have been working on a philco 37-665, big table set. a really nice set, but rare enought that no one is reproducing the dial scale for it. sent one i borrowed to rock-sea enterprises. i paid shipping both ways and he got a good image of the dial for free only to say that he's not interested in reproducing it. does anyone one know of a compatable dial????? this is a four band set, i don't care as to whether the design is original, but that it tracks reasonably well with the tuner and looks alright. Anyone have a junker or know what other philco dial might fit this radio???? JUSTIN<P>------------------<BR>

Contact Mark Oppat at Antique Audio. He just purchased the line of Philco dials that was in production several years ago by a now deceased individual. BTW, you will need the Philco part number stamped on the dial, most dial makers need the part number, not the model number of the set. For example, there were at least two different dials used on the Philco XX-2670 series...<P>Carolyn Stoppa (sp?) was also doing Philco dials at one time, and occasionally sells them on eBay.<BR>Pete<BR><P>------------------<BR>

What is wrong with the original dial? You mentioned that Mike at Rock-Sea got a good scan of it.<P>Here is what I have done (though never with a Philco dial). Scan the dial into the computer. Fix any areas that are broken, whatever. Convert the image to black and white (if you want black text). Print the image out onto a decal paper. Attach the decal onto a suitable material (AES sells transulcent dial material similar to the philco stuff).<P>Results vary but it's better than nothing!<P>Peter<P><P>------------------<BR> <A HREF="http://www.plasticradios.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.plasticradios.com</A>

Peter, where do you get the water slide decal paper at? I have been trying to find this stuff for a long time with no luck. I have a friend who said he could do repo dials with his laser printer as he owns a printing, vinyl sign, t-shirt printing company and is willing to try his hand at the radio labels and dials if I can supply him with the sources and logos to work with. Thanx for any info. <P>------------------<BR>DecotronixDan

Yeah, I got mine from the beldecal site exray mentioned. It was $25, I think, for 5 sheets. Not cheap!<P>I used most of mine up making a few dials and also some photo-finish strips for a Zenith 5-S-319. The possibilities are endless.<P>Peter<P><P>------------------<BR> <A HREF="http://www.plasticradios.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.plasticradios.com</A>
