New Feature 3D Printing Service

I'm currently trialling 3D printing, having done a few bits myself, including a new drive cog to repair the record door on my 1980s Sharp Vertical Record Player. A few teeth had been chewed off the 35-year-old gear. I'm wondering what interest there would be in designing and printing new parts, such as gears, knobs etc. Obviously it would be a trial, so no costs involved, just testing the water to gauge interest.

Jamie,

Nice work on that.

 You may be the very person i`m looing for to make some knobs for the sliders of the same make Sharp machine !

@freya Hi, No worries, send me a few pictures and i'll see if it's indeed viable.

The cogs are now on ebay, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114974455152

Hi Jamie

It could be useful to have the AFC tuning keys that portables had?

I'm currently looking for one for my Ferguson 34170. Maybe on that note, new doors could possibly be made for TVs and the likes?

This is something I'm very interested in! I've been toying with the idea of getting a printer myself for a while, I just can't think of a good place to keep it. I have a small list of things I need it for; some vintage electronics related (e.g. channel knob for my Ekco T344F), some classic car related.

I've just finished with Stephens slider for his Sharp... It's been a learning curve that's for sure! If anyone wants to upload a few pictures of the sort of thing they'd like to see done, I can certainly give it a look. It's a VERY time consuming process. Just on this below design I must've spent nearly 10 hours over the course of a few weeks (aswell as working 42hrs a week driving a school bus!)
