FS: National NC-303 Parts

Well, either my attempt at pricing these parts is too high, or
no-one is restoring or repairing an NC-303.

As usual, when I need a part the prices seem outrageous, but if I
decide to sell something it has no value!!  I guess everyone else
feels the same way!  :-)

Anyway, I really would like to find a home for these pieces,
since they are for the most part made of unobtainium.

So let's try it without prices and I'll see if it's worthwhile to
deal with it, or if I should just toss them in the trash.

Main three section tuning capacitor.

Entire front end sub-chassis with all coils and trimmers,
including bandswitch wafers.

S-Meter with bracket.  Excellent condition, small crack in case
well below visible area.

Complete Q-Multiplier sub-chassis.

Main Tuning knob, plastic knob and cast skirt in excellent
condition, bright metal inlay looks just dirty and might clean up
fine.  If not K3ICH has replacement rings.  I also have the main
tuning shaft with pulley and compression spring.

Front panel cast Dial escutcheon.  Very good condition, three
minor chips in black wrinkle area.

Front panel cast Control escutcheon.  Very good condition, minor
chip in black wrinkle area.

Black ANL, SELECT and TONE knobs.  Bright disks showing what
appears to be "checking" in a clear (lacquer?)
coating, lettering excellent.

One small Cal knob.

Dial window "mask".

A few rotary switches, detent disk plate for band switch, Mode
switch indicator plate, tuning flywheel plate, dial cord drum, a
few miscellaneous gears, main tuning dial bracket (fairly complex
assembly that dial pointer rides on), main chassis side panel
brackets, and a  _bunch_  of small mechanical brackets and pieces.

If you have a sketch or photo of a needed small mechanical part
or gear, I may have it.
