Robert Hain replied to Alexander Montgomery's discussion I am attempting to download a .dwg to my TGO.
"You should be able to copy installation files from your disk to the computer, then right click on setup file and run in compatibility mode for older Windows version. This might help get your software installed. Good luck."

Robert Hain replied to trout's discussion Grading Permit Plans in Pennsylvania: Can a surveyor calculate and sign off on Infiltration Beds and trenches?
"My experience has been that it depends on the reviewing code officer or engineer for the municipality where the work is being done. Most want to see a PE license for anything more than simplified stone pit calculations. I took a quick look at this…"

Schonstedt power switch

Hoping someone might be able to help us out here. We use older Schonstedt metal locators that have the power/volume knob as a single unit. Apparently, they no longer make replacements switches for this component. Is there anywhere that we can go to get a replacement switch to work for this? Even with slight alteration required to the unit, still should be a big savings to replace the switch over purchasing new one. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.See More

"I sent my old Schonstedt to the factory and had it rebuilt for $375. New electronics, new speaker, fresh paint, new decal and all. I would think they would retrofit a new switch on their R&D time. Don"

"Schonstedt is a really good company and you can probably give them your old unit and purchase a new one for a fraction of the first time cost.  Cheers"

"I am sure that what matters is the size of the knob's shaft (or whatever the real word is), which is listed on each item's individual description page. https://shop.schonstedt.com/collections/parts?page=2 For older GA models, other than…"

"Thanks for the advice, gents. Unfortunately, Schonstedt doesn't have parts for this anymore. Just called them. Hoping Mouser might be able to help me. Waiting on a response from them."

Bradley Riggleman replied to Robert Hain's discussion Schonstedt power switch
"You have a couple of good responses so far. Its a simple on/off POT switch and I am sure they still make it. The Schonstedt facility is just up the road from me (10 miles) and I have our old units rebuilt there. Mouser electronics is sure to have…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Robert Hain's discussion Schonstedt power switch
"At one point they would remanufacture the entire unit for a couple hundred bucks. Have you checked 3rd. party repair companies? It is just a rheostat switch. If you can get the specs on it, you should be able to find one that will work."

J. Anthony Cavell replied to Robert Hain's discussion Schonstedt power switch
"Remove the switch (or have a buddy confident with electronics do it). Look for identifying part numbers on it. Go to a local electronics supply house and ask if they can help. A personal visit will, in the right store, gain the interest of the…"
