I'm in for a 857 set. Price yet?
KX2 main VFO knob:
6mm pot shaft w keyed flat spot
11.6mm from radio face to top of shaft
Will get back with you after Dayton Hamfest. Does not look like it will be a problem.
You can see the knob in person at the Elecraft booth. Have a great trip!
Also having knob scooped out in back to reduce weight would prob be good to consider as many KX2 users are backpack operators like myself.
I saw the KX2's at the Ham Fest and believe I can do this with the dimensions you have given me. I can make these they are a little bigger than the FT 817 knob. Are you wanting Brass or Aluminum? The Aluminum would be $35.00 each and the brass $45.00.
Would like a brass tuning knob for a 817 KB1ZYG Ted
If you are still interested.
Sorry I did not get back with you earlier. Some things come up medically.
If you have not gotten one and still interested yes I am making the FT817 knob.
They are $30 plus shipping. I current’y have around 23 that will be finished in
the next couple of days. What is your address and I will find out shipping cost and
let you know..
Again sorry for the long delay in getting back to you.
Received my FT-817 knob today. Very nice work. Thanks.
How about a knob for a K3s?
I have ordered knobs for the KX2 and KX3 so when I receive them I will be be making knobs for the KX3 and KX2
