Dual 1219 3 piece dust cover hinge ch 20

Post by Gordimoose » 18 Sep 2019 19:39

Hello,
I am retired and as a hobby I buy repair and sell Dual turntables.
Mostly the 12 series but will also work on the 10 series.
I recently purchased a really nice Dual 1219.
European model with an actual Dual plinth that has a drop front storage compartment.
It also has a 3 piece dust cover that opens at the front and flips on top of the body of the cover.
I believe it is a model CH 20 cover
This lid has 4 little black plastic hinges, one is broken. It is one of the top hinges that lays flat.
I am wondering if anyone has one of these or knows where I might find a replacement hinge.
I am In Pickering so anywhere in the GTA would be best for pickup.
It is very small and it would be easy to ship as well.
Thanks Gord

Dual made some terrific machines, but their dust covers are a nightmare. They always crack or break on the back panel. The front hinges on the CH20 are very fragile indeed. I broke a couple of those too, I repaired them by glueing small strips of plastic to them.
I recently repaired a CH21 dust cover where the front hinge broke off. I epoxy glued it back together, it seems to hold for now but one has to be very careful when handling this type of cover.

Thanks Japi,
I may have to try a repair.
I ordered 2 of 218005 hinges from Dual-parts.com almost a month ago.
I haven't seen them yet. I haven't even received a confirmation email from them.
Has anyone else ordered from them to be shipped to Canada? Any problems?
I would think little tiny parts should just come through the mail.
I messaged them today and await their reply.
What material did you use to glue on the hinge?
I tried thin rubber but it was to flimsy.
Thanks for your help
Gord
