Lever Prep & Installation

Got the levers prepped and installed. Will move on to final soldering tomorrow. Here are some snaps of the prep and final install. This might be a keeper for future transmitters!

Woohoo!!! The levers are here.

Just got the custom levers for the Kraft project. These are a hybrid of a Proline shape, Kraft size and Ace oversize thumb gripper.

Dry fit and progress of Mr. Kraft

The holidays are done and the new year's first born is due soon. Here are some photos of a dry fit and progress including successfully finding a replacement pot for a Kraft SS!!!

Some of the new bits

New bracket...gotta match just so!

Old ceramic pot base and new 10k donor.

Those old Krafts were completely adjustable. Very nice!!!
