I used to have a 580 Delta...didn't take long before the bandswitch got a
crack where the set screw was...
Ditto for my Omni and my Corsair II..
I took a small piece of steel wire, wrapped it around the outside of the
inner part of the knob on each...that solved that.

>> Those non insert knobs have been a problem for Ten Tec too.
>> It was just a poor design.
>> Even Ten Tec would go with that feeling.
