Old radio knobs

This is Berti Benis's web-site          you are on





One of my hobby, in 1980s, was the reproduction of the old radio knobs.

At that time, usually, I found radios which were missing knobs, it was a problem so I decided to try  reproduce them.

Has been an hard job but finally I reproduced a lot of knob models.

I used an epoxy resin and the nucleus was iron made, to obtain a good working of the screw.

The epoxy resin was black, so to reproduce the brown knobs was necessary to paint them.

I manufactured knobs for many radio models but, since 1990, I dont work anymore on them.

Now Im selling the last sets. 

I made a lot of radio knobs for Telefunken 40W radio, Nora radio and many Italian kind of radios.
