    Default Abene VHF-3 control panel

    I'm rebuilding the control panel. The red button is damaged beyond recognition. Can anyone please share a picture of that button? I will try to 3d-print a new cap.

    Thanks!

    On mine there is nothing but a round center section. It is plain with no writing or graphics.

    Your welcome. For some reason the picture loaded sideways.

    Here is what I ended up with:

    img_1304.jpg
    I'm very pleased with the result. It's printed out of translucent PETG. I may try to sand and polish the front face - will see.

    That came out nice. If you decide to do yellow ones for the spindle rotation let me know. One of mine is roached.

    If anyone is wondering, the switches are still obtainable through ebay. They are called EAO (Olten) CH-4600. The contact groups can be easily moved between the switches, so you can buy any modification of it and then change the contacts.

    Sure. I will get some yellow translucent PETG and will let you know if I get any success with it.
