Hi everyone

I have inherited a 14" Ferguson TX 90 colour portable from my late aunt who passed away in February. This little set has sentimental value to my as it was purchased from the dealer where I worked in 1985. Unfortunately the orange afc tunning peg is missing and I would love to obtain one if I could . Any costs will be met.

Regards Gary.

@colourmaster There was someone else asking about one a while back. I thought I might have had a couple stashed away somewhere but couldn’t find them. Lovely set BTW 37140?

I suspect you'll have a devil of a job finding one, not impossible, but they're often lost. My recommendation is to private message Jamie @jskinner97

Jamie offers VRAT members a 3D-Printing service (see here).

I'm pretty certain Jamie will be able to 3D-print one for you. As you can see from the thread I linked to, he's managed to replicate far more complex items than the tuning twiddler you seek. If you specifically want “Orange”, I suspect you may be able to commission Jamie to purchase the correct coloured resin.

You'll notice @19seventie has also mentioned he needs a twiddler.

@crustytv Indeed, It is very possible I could 3D Print one... But I would need one to go off, I wouldn't be able to design one from thin air so to speak. I believe I threw out a set similar to this, along with 3 others about 4 weeks ago complete with the "twiddlers".

They were offered on the forum sadly.

I'll have a look at the Ferguson MC01 I have in one of the stores to see if it still has it so it could be used as a pattern. Could also ask my sister if she still has her little TX90?

Went to the store today and opened the door on the MC01.

The twiddler is present!!

So, @jskinner97, if I send you this one (I would like it back, by the way!), can you do the honours? I'll need to know where to send it, of course.

@cathovisor it depends if you are in a rush... I can sure give it a go and of course return it... but it may take months as I am snowed under, designing alone can take days of fiddling about with measurements, and several prototypes before I can give it a go if that makes sense.

Cheers
Jamie.

Hi Mike, if you could send it to me I have a good friend with a 3D printer who would be able to make me one , then I'll send yours back. 

Let me know what you think.
