The SA was more expensive and contained internal SWR and Power meters and allowed switching several different antennas and would cover meters thru 10 meters. You should never do that.
I removed the shaft from the cap and used a small butane torch to remove the old connection, clean it up and solder a new piece of braid from RG to it.
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing. Have one to sell? I didn’t notice the damage until I was checking out the inductor problem.

I also installed a flexible coupler between the roller and the panel shaft. Like the this SAA also is a simple “T-match” tuner, but it has switched antenna inputs and has a self-contained “RF power detector” in the rear box. If you could “read” and solder, you could build Heathkits that worked as soon as you switched them sz. Above is my inductor after part of it was cleaned.
That’s why I suggest taking pix and keeping notes as you do this job. Seems likes a complete unit and overall is decent for a used piece of gear. But just like the SA in putting the SAA together, the builder actually had to “build” the capacitors from individual plates!

If you don’t have one, borrow one from an old timer. You are covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee if you receive an item that is not as described in the listing.

At that time I pulled the inductor out to properly repair it and noticed the internal connection has been twisted off. Learn More – opens in a new window or tab. This made it much easier to turn. A view of the reworked balun. Buyer to refinish if desired. I used a brush to clean out the space between the windings and plenty of warm water. Excess water was removed with compressed air and then the windings were cleaned with alcohol and a lint free cloth.
Always adjust a manual tuner at low power, especially on the higher frequencies. Loctite used on the set screws and no more problems. Add to watch list. The excess paste needs to be washed off. No “cold solder” joints and an all around nice job. Casing has a good amount of scratching on the top and the sides. The Kapton is the golden stuff on the silver strap. If you’ve visited this site before you know that one of my favorite pastimes is rebuilding old ham gear.

You can see the silver is worn and copper is showing through. Here is a closer look at the pitted end of the roller on the left, or high frequency end.
Delivery times may vary, especially during peak periods. You must leave a bit of unsoldered braid so that the shaft can be located to the center to permit the inductor cap to be installed. Please allow additional time if international delivery is subject to customs processing.
Heathkiit would be impossible to do with a standard soldering iron. They are a great time and trouble saver.
I suggest having a small box or pan to keep all the screws and washers and nuts together as you disassemble a piece of gear. I took the parts from two s and used the best parts to make one really good one. If you don’t, you stand a good chance of pitting one like this. Report item – opens in a new window or tab.
That allows for a much better bite on the damaged shaft.
