Dual CH21 dustcover hinge

Post by Hugues TR4 » 12 Nov 2019 15:50

Hi All,

Just opening this thread on a different site to be able to reach more people.
As written in the subject box, I'm currently looking for a small part which seems very difficult to find.
Found a very nice Dual 1229 turntable in very good state for a good price.
With it came a quite rare and attractive plexi cover with a sliding top, called CH21 on the Dual catalogue, apparently only available in Europe.
The flip open front features two plastic hinges.
Unfortunately, one of the hinges (the right side one) was missing with some damage to the cover itself.
One of our fellows VEers contacted me to say that he had found one in his junk box, but it is a left one.
Tried to adapt it on the right side, but it differs about 2° from the original and the flip front can't close properly.
Would anybody have a spare one somewhere, I would appreciate very much if he/she would sell it to me.
Many thanks for your usual top cooperation!
Cheers,

Hugh

OK Folks, I have finally found the missing parts at a German e-bay seller, who luckily had right hand hinges.
I'm getting the parts early next week.
This will enable me to restore this CH21 cover to its original beauty!
Thanks to all who have read my post.
Cheers,

Hugh
