    Hi everyone. I sure hope someone can help me with this. I have searched for 2 days and cannot find this part to my boombox. If someone, anyone would be kind enough to give me a heads up on where I can purchase another one of these, I would be so ever grateful. I have been to all the home hardware stores, tv repair shops, flea markets (trying to find the same type of item), auto stores etc etc..No one can tell me what it is and where I can buy it. I have no manual so I cannot even look up the part number or item name. It is no longer produced so there is no support to be had.

    It is a Spirit of St Louis Boombox/CD Player/Radio
    Model # Ryan NX-211
    Year 1998

    I took some pics that didn't turn out real well but hopefully you can make out what it is. It is made from pot metal.

    Thanks!

    Silc, check this You must register/login in order to see the link. The photos you have look like just the handle part - there's got to be some kind of little electronic component attached, when you replace it you have to replace the whole thing.

    There's a customer service number you can call, maybe they'll be able to tell you if one of these will work in that machine. Then even if you get the part number you should be able to find it at a local electronics store (or have them order it for you) :thumbsup:

    Thank you

    Thank you chayton for this info. I have already tried those items and they cannot be modified for the item I need. Those have electonics attached to the switch handle. I just need the handle that slide on to the wire inside the cabinet (as shown in pic) . This is how it turns the items on/off by being on the wire that goes through the middle of the little toggle thing. All it is is the actual toggle handle with a small hole in the middle. Amazing how with all this online information, something simple as this cannot be found by a person. Thank you for trying....

    Sounds like it would be easier to just go to a machine shop and have them make you a new one!

    My last idea - I'm sure you've already done this, but have you tried a hobby shop, some place that has electric trains and stuff like that?

    i have a friend with a custom metal shop, im sure he can make it, but he'd need lots more detail and pics.

    let me know and i will get you in touch with him.
