jagcat Posted April 7, 2019 Report Share Posted April 7, 2019 Hello again, just 13 years are gone by since my last topic ☺️ in March 2006 I showed some pics of my still favourised AR-3 improved. Last year I got the chance to get my hands on an unrestored pair of AR-5, advertised in Germanys „Ebay-Kleinanzeigen“, a kind of Neighbourhood fleamarket. The Neighbour in this case lived in Frankfurt, I still stay half an hour northwest from Hamburg... so just a 500 Kilometers between us to catch them... The overall condition is... used ... is a more friendly word, but at the end nearly complete and never opened before. The rotten foam surrounds is nowadays a quite easy job for do it yourself, so it was quickly done. As the next step I tried to clean the pots (Pollak- Boston-Mass.) which workes easy if you have the hands of a snake charmer. I used Sandpapier number 6.000 and ballbearing grease, they are now realy smooth to turn and without dropouts. What is missing? I need one of these black knobs for easy turning the pots, just as the picture below. This is the smallest problem... also missing is one brass plate AR-5 from the front...
