Miraphone plastic ball linkage (1x)

Postby bort » Sun Dec 04, 2016 3:04 pm

Does anyone have an extra laying round? The gray part, with the white nylon screw? Need to replace one that is cracked on the shaft end (surprise, surprise).

Thanks!

Also interested.

I think I'm cleaned out of used ones since most of them come to me cracked. Unless I'm mistaken... those are still available. Allied lists them as R-328 at $20.50 each (retail).

Likewise.
And I thought that I was the only person still using them... :oops:

Can the public buy from them?

When schools that used to have this issue asked me to help, I used to replace the ends close to the spatulas with hobby shop parts, giving me extras for when the one on the stop arms cracked

Worked great

No. You need to go through a dealer or registered repair person.

I just replace them with the metal ones so the directors don't have to worry about replacing them again.
