One of the buttons on my 40-button Wheatstone anglo snapped.  A repair shop was able to extract the broken pieces of the button from the concertina, but I need to now find a single replacement button.  Is there a place that I can go to buy one of these?  I'm going to cover the hole in the meantime so dust doesn't get in.  The lever mechanism and cover are both intact, so it's just replacing the button.  Any suggestions?

The obvious answer is Steve Dickinson,  http://www.wheatstone.co.uk/index.php

However, as you are in the US, perhaps repairer Greg Jowaisas in Kentucky can help; he may have some spares available.

Not sure if there is anyone closer to CA.....

Good luck

The Button Box came through for me when I had the same problem a few years back.
