DOES ANYONE HAVE A DEAD TFM-35 SITTING AROUND???

Post by beemers417 » Sat Jul 18, 2009 5:15 pm

I need the entire plastic and aluminum face only. No meters or rack handles necessary. I have a 35 that is twisted courtesy of UPS up but still functional. [-o< [-o< [-o<

Is the plastic part messed up too?? I've got a TFM-55 that looks like someone routed it with a Dremel tool on the plastic part, the aluminum portion is fine. I've been looking for the plastic section for a while now, with zero luck ](*,) If you find both pieces, maybe I could buy your old plastic panel if it's in better shape than the one I've got. I'd like to have it in good cosmetic condition before sending it to Rita, and hopefully to be signed by Bob Carver!

gdb, I have been amassing a large amount of parts here for quite some time. TFM parts are slim to none though. I will definitely keep my eyes open for a dead 55. BTW,The person that routed the 55 should be shot...
The 35 I have has a severely bent left side and the molded plastic mount area for the output control is sheared sheared off. I can prob. fix that,but the aluminum will never be proper again. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

I have both a 35 & 55 and as far as I can tell, their faceplates are identical, except for the printing of course.

Refinish a face off a 55 in a nice lacker finish and you will be back in business. It could look like one of my TFM 25's.
Some cool Carver stuff!
