Well I bit the bullet and managed to get my hands on a used Proton Props 84 pack. Unfortunately, this beauty needs some TLC and repairs after the postmen did a number to her! I've reached out to proton props, and they're helping me too, but I wanted to get some other opinions.
I have ZERO technical skills, limited tools, and have already sank a lot into this project. Trying to come up with repairs that I'll be able to do that won't break the bank!
As you can clearly see, she didn't fair well on her voyage!
First repair: the crank knob. I found what I assume is the screw floating in the box:
I assume I just loosen the existing screw that is already in the crank knob, pop it on the volume knob, and tighten everything back up?
Next up, the Ion arm is sheered completely off. I'm hoping theres a way to just remove it and put a new one in its place?
the last thing I found is the pop spring on the neutrona wand. It still pops...but its...really slow about it. Just kinda slowly slides out, and is difficult to get back in.
Any ideas/assistance would be really appreciated guys! IT was a bummer seeing the box the way it came
hopefully we can freshen this old girl up!
