    I hope I am posting this in the right place. I am very new to this. My name is Jay and I just recently purchased a 1959 Zenith Radio/TT console model SF185. I definitely have some work ahead of me to get it purring but I had a few questions about the radio tuner. It had a cover glass on the radio dial that is shattered and below that was another sheet of glass with the dial numbers on it, which is also broken. I have no idea how I can go about replacing that and I was hoping I could get some suggestions. I will be replacing the dial cord this next week since that was broken as well. I picked this up because I wanted to share some of my childhood nostalgia with my kids. I grew up with an old Magnavox 8 track/TT/radio console as a kid and I loved the thing until I came home one day and my parents decided to send it out with the garbage.

    You might want to post your questions at AK's sister site, www.videokarma.org which (despite its name) has - or at least had - an active antique radio group.
    Good luck!
