1937 Buick Radio Knobs

Recommended Posts

The radio knobs are a one-piece ivory-colored plastic knob with a small set screw to hold it tight.

I worded my question poorly.   I meant to ask about the metal disc(s) behind

the plastic knobs.  One or two metal disc(s) behind each plastic knob ?

 

Photos anyone ?

  It's been quite a while since I've removed the knobs from a radio. If my memory serves me correctly these knob/discs fit over the nuts that secure the radio to the dash without a washer. These do have a purpose other than decoration as they adjust bass, treble and local and distant stations so they have to ride on that portion of the shaft. Perhaps Gary or someone can chime in and confirm or correct my aging memory.

Carl;

Your are correct:

 

Here's the sequence:

Radio supported by the bracket that drops down from the rear hood hold-down bolt.

That bracket is adjustable to get the radio face parallel with the dash.

Special thin nuts secure the radio to the dash panel.

Your bass/treble   local/distant knobs have a flat spot that fits over the shaft.

Finally the ivory plastic knobs are slid in position and set with a set screw.
