Re: {Collins} 51J-2 kilocycle dial

I believe the Brown stain is from light, either sunlight or the bulb behind it.
Unfortunately I don't think it can be removed.

Howard Mills sells replacements, in the $10 - $20 range but don't quote me.
Contact info on the CCA site.

The screws are typically Bristol and are "set" in place with the green stuff.
Often the knobs have allen screws instead.

> I’m in the process of restoring a 51J-2 which is in very good condition – for the most part.  However, the kilocycle dial has a brown stain on either side of the 0.  This stain does not come off with alcohol on a Q-tip.  Any suggestions about other solvents.  It is rather difficult to remove the dial due to the tight space.  The front knobs all used allen set screws rather than the bristol spline type.  Is this dial also secured with allen screws?  If the stain cannot be removed are replacement dials available?
