I just replaced the plastic window in a small radio. It's about 6" wide 
by 3/4" high. It has 3 small words stenciled on it with one 1/8" hole 
and a half moon cutout about 1/2" across. List price was $206. OTOH it 
did say King KY197, but still...

I need to figure out how to replace those big glass frequency read outs 
in my Hallicrafters 101 series receivers with plastic.

BTW if those couplings are of Brass, anything using copper has almost 
tripled in price over the last two years.  If you want sticker shock 
price 3/4 and 1" copper pipe. OTOH I use a lot of square, steel tubing 
welded up for frames and fixtures.  It's more than doubled in just over 
a year.
