  1. Today
  2. Did i mention that unfreezing these old screws is my most favorite part of this hobby?
  3. Got them off. Heating with soldering iron combined with gently hammering the edges of the screw slits.

    DAK/TROPICAL BELT AND BUCKLE #2

    Just an observation. The eagle from the front is quite rusted and that appears to continue to the reverse of the buckle and the 'ears'! Yet a webbing tab that is on this buckle since the war has no rust marks that have transfered from the buckle? Also the stiching to the tab is quite bright and fresh looking? I think there is more to be discussed here? Or am I barking mad? Rich

    Hello from Oslo

    Welcome, what is the yellow one all about? Best Rich
  12. Here is the picture of the strange frequency fine-tuning knob. It looks like the screws have been countersunk into soft material, and the knob hardened around them. Really strange look. I can't see how I can even unscrew these.

    Hello from Oslo. I mainly collect german helmets and fieldgear. /Kyrre Pedersen
  15. Hi, just testing the forum.
  16. Thank you FS. We can communicate on 472-479 KHz here with a max output of 5 watts. I am building a 1/4 wave 600 meter meander dipole antenna for this purpose. If I can get 5% efficiency from this antenna at 100 watts, I will be happy.
  17. Hello Remco, Any luck in your digging ? Cheers Pascal
  18. The Asbestos is best touched as little as possible, certainly don't do anything to is that might cause loose fibres to escape. I power the 100 W.S. through a U100, since I only use it with a dummy load (KA100) I am not worried about restricting the power. Long wave is completely unusable here for amateur use due to ADSL interference anyway, so using it in a QSO is out of the question. Rather than replace the grease, I revitalise the old grease with thin oil (WD40 or equivalent). Grease consist of oil in an emulsifier (typically a soap), they harden because the light ends of the oil evaporate over time. By adding thin oil and working the bearing you mix the light ends back into the grease giving it a new lease of life. The big advantage of using this method is that it prevents you having to take the bearings out for cleaning and re-greasing so you won't have to dismantle the complete transmitter. Use penetrating oil on the screws of the frequency tuning knob and be patient. They should come undone eventually... regards, Funksammler
  19. Any ideas about removing the fine-tuning frequency knob? The screws are frozen.
  20. Spectroscopic Optical Telegraph {The Morse Machine). Don't laugh it's not so simple as you'd think and was probably secure. www.britishpathe.com/video/the-morse-machine/query/morse ABSTRACT 489,357. VISIBLE SIGNALLING APPARATUS. BRUSCAGLIONI, R. OCT. 20, 1936, NO. 28534. VOID. CONVENTION DATE, OCT. 21, 1935. DRAWINGS TO SPECIFICATION.

THE STOPPING SCREENS MAY BE OPERATED FROM A KEYBOARD AND THE RECEIVED SIGNALS MAY BE RECORDED BY MEANS OF A SPECTROGRAPHIC CAMERA.
  21. Any advice on the best lubricant for tuning gears? Something similar to what was originally used, but not corrosive to the metal.
  22. To make things clear, I have this type: female built-in Male plug: Male buit-in: I assume there exists a female plug to connect to the male built-in, but never saw one of these.

    Here is the problem these days! Ebay de! These are crude but there are better ones available. Notice the incomplete swastika to comply with ebay and you could probably get away with that if it was a light strike! Rich
  25. Hello Remco, I have some of the male connectors, both built-in and cable plug, some female built-in, but no female plug for cable. If you have one (or more) of those, I'm interested. Thanks
