    Best advice is to read the various 500-C/800-C threads. After a few, you would have been exposed to virtually all the modern adjustments to make your unit safe. Many are essential, some are discretionary, but all are in keeping with the original design adapted to contemporary usage. Based on your experience, the DIY approach would certainly be a rewarding if not enriching experience.

    Fred. Solid State knobs were squared off with either a RIBBED(pre 68) or SMOOTH(post 68 up thru 71 or so (pre japanese/Asian manufacture)) side. The brights had a squared off edge vs. beveled and were FLUSH against the sides. All except for the tuning knob had a raised indicator rib.

    Right, Larry, but where was the non tapered rib used?

    Very nice indeed! Think I need to look for those safety resistors.

    I think you are misinterpreting my question. What I'm referring to is (post #14 photo) one knob having a rib that is higher toward the back of the knob while the other has a rib that is the same height above the knob front to back. The latter I have not seen.

    (Back to post #14) Never seen the straight rib knob on Solid State, except for the split knobs for Tone controls, which have a straighter rib, but still angled some. The smooth side knob is a console knob. Stand-Alones got a ribbed side knob.
