 +====== Loose Pre-selector Fix ======
 +**From the Ten-Tec Reflector February 22, 2000**
  
 +The simplest fix for a loose pre selector tuning control is the felt pad behind the knob.  I bought a card full of them at the local hardware store. ​ They usually have adhesive on one side for sticking to the bottom of furniture legs or lamp bases. ​ I use a paper punch and put a 1/4" hole in the center of a smaller pad and stick it to the back of the knob and then re install the knob firmly against the panel. ​ It sure beats taking the radio apart.

 +I have an Omni-C with a preselector that would slip from its 40 meter setting down toward 80 meters. ​ Gravity, I think.

 +Well, I just tried Gerald'​s method almost to the letter. ​ The only thing I did differently was to put the sticky side of the little felt pad on the panel itself. ​ That way, if there is any wear it will be to the back of the knob instead of to the paint on the panel.

 +It works GREAT!
