{Collins} Dzus Fasteners

Ran across this press release regarding the famous Dzus fasteners: yes, those 
fasteners used to hold down the lid of your KWM-2A and 30S-1.   Collins originally 
used the Dzus branded fasteners for the WE and RE units, but switched to a Southco 
equivalent fastener for the late RE and Rockwell badged production.

Southco also makes the late version door hardware for the larger HF-80 amplifiers.  
They are a special order part, but i have some extras if anyone needs them...
