Knobless FT2D

A minor disaster befell the FT2D, the tuning knob fell apart. Part of the inner plastic bit that holds the metal D-shaped ‘grip’ (?) that fits it onto the shaft broke away and the knob dropped off. The radio has never been abused…

Googling (actually, duckduckgo’ing, is that a thing yet?) finds a few people have created 3D printer files for this which suggests it may be a known weakness. Now, where is that 3D… oh, wait, it was on my Christmas list but Santa never brought it. Drat…

For now the bit that dropped out has been glued back in with some slivers of matchsticks as padding to hold it together. So far, so good.
