Need crown for old 18s Case

New postby crazycharacter » Fri Feb 18, 2011 5:45 pm

This case hold an early AT keywind. The case is a bit unusual as the back pops open when the crown is pushed instead of the front. It is missing the crown and currently can only be opened by carefully prying the back. I am looking to get it repaired so it works correctly. I believe it should have a flat style crown/pusher. If you have the correct parts or know someone who can get this done, please email me with contact information and a rough estimate. I looked through all of my parts and have nothing that will work.

Thanks!

Adam

I think I can make the required part for you out of brass, and then plate it, but you'd have to send me the case. Are you interested?

I have some NROS (new, really old, stock) pushers here. If you would measure the ID and OD of the pendant and the approximate reach (length)needed to open the case, I'll see if I can match it.-Cort
