Replace Scholer Buttons

Recommended Posts

Hi All. Sorry if this exists already but I couldn't find it. Just acquired a small D/A Scholer Anglo that plays OK but has 2 buttons missing altogether. Nothing on the web that I can find. Anyone any ideas what to replace then with? Also - It does look like they will just glue directly on to the lever but if anyone has a better idea I would appreciate it.

A section of hardwood dowel can be chucked in an electric drill and turned to matching diameter and profiled with files and sandpaper. Stain to a close match and seal with wax or varnish, then glue in place after trimming to correct length. If the buttons are plastic, you can do basically the same if you can source plastic rod of the appropriate diameter.

Thanks, sqzbxr. They are plastic tops and wood underneath. Doweling of the right diameter is not an issue but do you know of any plastic stuff that would do?

Not offhand, but a hobby shop might be able to provide sheet plastic and a glue for affixing it to the wood. Laminate first, then turn and profile.

Good plan - I have some glue for model railway stuff that will do the job - I'll see if they have any plastic dowel as well.

or chuck all the original buttons and make a full set out of whatever you fancy...
