After much ado, the conclusion was reached that they were correct for at least one version. I happen to have a mint one of these, looks like it just came out of the box. Now the problem. A second discussion ensued whether the gold brights in the center of the knobs for the calibrator and antenna trimmer were legitimate. The original conclusion was "No, they were not correct". Like an idiot, I cleaned off the gold paint on mine after several seemingly knowledgeable folks made the "Not Legit" declaration. This was in the early to mid 1990s. Now, we all know that was the wrong answer. As I said, I have a mint version, except for those two knobs. Is there anyone out there with an SX-100 with good gold inserts that would be interested in a trade for good knobs with silver inserts and some beer (or other vice you see fit) money.

The entire knob bright is not gold, but rather a gold 'ring' on the inside edge where the bright meets the body of the knob. Perhaps it is worn away, or it is a coloration from an aging clear coat? Not sure. I have another, but am unable to access it at this time. All of these are of course the same style & size knob, but the extent of gold coloring varies. Good luck & keep us posted!

In 55 years of hamming I have never seen a true "gold" (plated or painted) inlay in an SX-100. The originals were in fact, made of brass, so if the original plating (nickel or chrome ?? ) wears off, you may see the brass. This is common on the back plate on the SX-101 main tuning knobs. And yes, there were several different style knobs used on the SX-100's. All the inlays and back plates I make are spun aluminum however. 73, Chas ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gerry Steffens" To: Sent: Monday, December 22, 2014 5:57 PM Subject: [Hallicrafters] SX-100 knobs >I am a Hallicrafters collector and restorer among other brands of radios. > > I have several SX-100s, one of each version, I believe. > > Many years ago before QTH.net, on the older reflector (Yahoo, Excite, or > where ever), a discussion ensued about whether the tapered or fluted (?) > knobs of the style of the S-38E were legitimate on the SX-100.

It chips off and it is only on those two small knobs. All others are normal silver. There is currently an SX-100 on the bay (# 121521093822) with the gold knob inserts. From my experience, the gold inserts are only on the one version, Mark IIa, or maybe mark IIb. I ought to be whipped with a wet noodle as back in the mid 1990s I once had another receiver with the gold knobs and I sold it and forgot to swap the knobs.

I've always made an attempt (usually extreme) to find the "correct" knobs to put on all my relics, but have not always been entirely successful. One case in point: my Hallicrafters HT-30, their first SSB exciter, from the mid 1950s. These rigs use the same type knobs as the SX-100, and, along with these receivers, make a nice looking "matched pair". I found this exciter 18-20 years ago, and it was missing one of these small knobs, and no matter how hard and far I searched, one of the "correct" knobs was never located. Joe, K9OCO, wanted to get a photo of this rig for the CQ 1999/2000 "Classics" calendar (and a few months earlier, I'd put a knob that was "close" on the still-bare shaft that was in need of this correct knob). Before I could "fix" the situation (and after the photo had been taken), the image was being included in the production of said calendar; if I had been thinking, I would have at least temporarily "borrowed" a knob from my SX-100 for the photo. The offending substitute knob still remains in its "new" place; it's one I had to "borrow" off a radio made almost 20 years after the HT-30 was made, and it's one of the knobs Regency used on their HR-2 (and subsequent models) solid-state FM transceivers. A similar photo (with this same non-original knob) also appears on page 64 of Joe's "50 Years" book, published by ARRL........and now, you all know "the REST of the story"........but don't tell anyone. Happy Holidays, and 73.......Herman, N4CH. In a message dated 12/22/2014 7:05:31 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, pincon at erols.com writes: Are you sure the "gold" isn't just nicotine staining? In 55 years of hamming I have never seen a true "gold" (plated or painted) inlay in an SX-100. The originals were in fact, made of brass, so if the original plating (nickel or chrome ?? ) wears off, you may see the brass. This is common on the back plate on the SX-101 main tuning knobs. And yes, there were several different style knobs used on the SX-100's. All the inlays and back plates I make are spun aluminum however. 73, Chas ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gerry Steffens" To: Sent: Monday, December 22, 2014 5:57 PM Subject: [Hallicrafters] SX-100 knobs >I am a Hallicrafters collector and restorer among other brands of radios. > > I have several SX-100s, one of each version, I believe. > > Many years ago before QTH.net, on the older reflector (Yahoo, Excite, or > where ever), a discussion ensued about whether the tapered or fluted (?) > knobs of the style of the S-38E were legitimate on the SX-100.

I've been struggling for two days now to figure out how to string the bandspread cord on the S-108 I've been rebuilding. I have the orginal manual, and am following the diagram as closely as I understand. So far, I've been unsuccessful in getting it to work. Not only is it slipping constantly, but it also stops half way through the band spread when turning the pulley by hand. My manual shows the cord from the dial pulley (5) throught the tensioner pulley and then at (6-7) wrapping below the main pulley and anchoring to the spring (8). I was successful in getting the main tuning cord replaced and operational, so I have got to be missing something on this. Does (6-7) indicate that there are TWO wraps around the main pulley, or does (6) indicate the tensioner pulley? The manual shows a dotted line, which I'm assuming means looking at it from the front of the radio, but I am not really certain. Does the cord go in front of, or behind, the tensioner pulley (the vertical one below the left hand side bandspread dial) The SX-110 seems to have the same cord restringing diagram, so I thought I'd mention that as well in case anyone had any experience with one of them. Any help or advice would be appreciated. I restrung my SX-42 and SX-101 dials, so I don't understand why this one is giving me such fits. Thanks! Jeff WB3JIH
