{Collins} Re: Early KWM-2 VFO knob




The old style knob does not have any set screws. 
The knob should have a tension tab in the shaft hole....you can put a
little grease on it to prevent rust and just push it on.

If you want to replace it with the spinner knob, just tighten both set
screws on the round part of the shaft.

Subject: {Collins} Early KWM-2 VFO knob


I have a beautiful VERY early KWM-2 (serial number 0911) that 
has the original VFO knob with no finger depression. I was thinking
of putting a weighted spinner knob on the VFO and saving the
original non-spinner knob.

I can not find the method Collins used to attach this older
knob to the shaft. There are no holes you usually find to 
insert the Bristol wrench for knob removal.

I might decide to just leave it alone, but I would like to
figure this one out just for curiosities sake!

Anyone else have a VERY early KWM-2?  This one 
appears to be completely un-modified. I would appreciate
recommendations about which mods may be the most 
important or offer the most advantage and also a 
recommendation for who to send the radio to for mods.
It is a beautiful radio and I don't want it done 1/2 way!
