Wanted- Yamaha 703 with ptt switch

I am looking for a Yamaha 703 control box with the ptt switch.

I have just got a 50 deto but all the screws in my box are gubbed up (and now rounded &#128546 and the box that came with it is even worse!

So anyone got one laying about?

Simon

A lot of them do it, you can drill the heads out and then remove the threads with pliers once it's apart.

The other thing would be to buy a nice shiny new one, comes with keys and new kill cord. You can get them for about 200

I want to try and do it on a budget if possible, I have drilled and removed all the frozen screws from the body, but the two in the handle don't leave enough to get a grip on with pliers with their heads gone 😢

I think all I need is a replacement handle and trim switch but can't find them on the net, well I can find the switch but at nearly 70 seems a bit steep!

A massive thanks to Davie on here.

He found me a replacement handle with a working ptt switch and sent it down to me at a fantastic price 😃

Highly recommended for yam parts.

As an aside getting all the wires to fit back in the box is a nightmare!
