If I understood this problem better, maybe I could come up with an idea. Is it just the small "ears" on the clear plastic cover that break off, or is there more to it than that?
That's it 2 tiny ears.
I was thinking of putting metal corners in on both sides with the ear shape, but then I thought of the plastic latch on the bottom and after use, the plastic catch would eventually let go.
My thinking is to "JB Weld" / fill in that area, take a tracing of the intact one and then try milling out the bad side in the same shape with a Dremel
However, the last time I tried a Dremel to buff out some deep scratches on a dust cover, I ended up melting it....
I'm going to have to make a lump of JB Weld and then practice on shaping it......
Fred and that's the best I can come up with.....at this time
Just for fun, I poked around the Partstore website again today.....
Was curious to see what parts were available for the newly fleabay acquired SL 10. For some reason, this model was not in Partstore so I then entered the entire compact footprint Technics linearage
When I put in the SL 7, the "dustcover" part is once again listed and "available" so I purchased this (price is the same as last time) along with belts which show as an "available part" under the SL 5.
The dustcover is also listed as being used for an SL 6000? too. Is this tt the same as the SL 7 sold under the Panasonic brand? I pulled the trigger based on the cartridge replacement part the "TM-14".
Anyway, we'll see what happens / what I get.
Edit: I've been notified that the dustcover is going to ship at the end of
Fred and looking at my lump of kneaded and hardened charcoal gray Quick Steel and going to attack with my Dremel tool for ear shaping for dustcover repair...... along with receiving a "new" one....
