WTB: Case ring for 466


greenboxmaven
 

I recently got a 466 to restore. The most important mechanical part I need is the plastic rim that goes on the back of the chassis to hold the case on. In the repair manual, It's called  "FRAME SECT, CAB. :REAR" and has a part number of 426-0970-00.  The feet which also serve as cord wraps are also missing.  Does anyone have any of these to spare? Thanks,

Bruce,

The cord wrap feet can be had easily enough from n0dy Jeff on eBay, $27.30 for as set of four (he doesn't list the 466, but it clearly uses the same feet as the 465 and 475). He used to sell on Amazon, but I can't seem to find his listing there now. I recommend n0dy Jeff's cord-wrap feet replacement at every opportunity as I am a happy, repeat customer.

I have a rear bezel from a 475A parts mule that is also part # 426-0970-00 and should fit the 466. It has a crack at one corner that has been repaired with epoxy, but is otherwise in good condition. I would be willing to part with it for a nominal fee plus shipping. Contact me off list.

I will add my endorsement here as well. I recently bought four sets from Jeff (our own Jeff Davis). They are excellent, 3D-printed replacements.

Cheers,
Tom

I have used Jeff's feet and can vouch for the quality of the 3D printing.

I've used (successfully) the tek 335 and 305 feet. Note Jeff has a direct site too, pricing may be bit better: search -
