[TenTec] Bill, I have the pointer you need and will send it to you if your QRZ address is ok. I got fed up with the crazy dial setup and put an old turns counter I had from many years ago on it. Doesn't look great, but it works.You might be able to find a turns counter on EBay or a surplus place, but they aren't cheap. MFJ has some tuner parts, but I haven't looked there. It's a possibility, but you have to adapt any you find.BTW, a fellow in EBay sells the pointer string and two nice led bulbs for a reasonable price. I'll go ahead and send the pointer and any associated parts when your address is verified. It is a good tuner, in my opinion! 73, John, K4AVXk4avx1 at windstream.net********** **** *********TenTec] 238B dial and 238 red pully/pointer

Subject: [TenTec] 238B dial and 238 red 

I am refurbing a 238 tuner, and the red pulley/pointer is missing.  Does anyone have a source (3D print) for a new one?  (this is not a simple red pointer like on the Omni/Triton that hangs on the cord  ? it has a pulley on it).  I have sourced a small pulley, but need the pointer itself.

Short of that, does anyone know where Ten Tec sourced the multi-turn knob for the newer 238B Inductor? I could skip the pointer and use the knob from the 238B tuner.
