The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
The beveled gear on the end of my Allwave XV band switch shaft is missing a tooth but otherwise looks OK. The missing tooth causes the mechanism to slip and catch when switching from broadcast to shortwave. Is there some way that I can re-orient that gear on the band switch shaft so that the segment with the missing tooth isn't in the range used when switching from BC to SW3?
It looks to me like the range used for band switching is about 270 degrees so I'm thinking that rotating the gear on the shaft so that the missing tooth segment is in the unused 90 degrees might solve the problem.
Does anyone know if this is possible and what the procedure would be to disassemble the mechanism enough to remove the band switch shaft?
