I have a beautiful model 55c Kiel table radio, the tuner knob plastic gear that spins the dial has worn down so it is essencially useless, I was hoping someone out there might have one or know where I could locate one, thanks for your help, Digihouse@consolidated.net

I repaired mine about 20 years ago by using a rubber grommet. I think it had about a 3/8 inside diameter and about a 1/2 outside diameter. If I remember correctly the edge of the dial rides in the groove in the outer perimeter of the grommet. This fix has worked well for me with no slippage.

Hope this helps,
