WANTED: ST(M) badge.

I'm looking for a replacement case badge for my 520STM as the paint has come off the old one.

I'm guessing that it's a different size to the STFM one.

Does anyone know where I might be able to buy one?

If you can't find an original, maybe you can order a homemade one.

Hmm... It's tricky dealing with the vendor, even if he does read your e-mail. Also the shipping charge would be HUGE! Still, it's an option.

Unfortunately both are STFM ones and not ST/STM so they may not fit (and have the 'FM' on them).

Thank-you for the offer.

Apparently Best Electronics only have STFM badges.

Talk to Robson on this forum, he can get you the NRE costs for you to have some 100% replica's made. He made a batch of Falcon060 replica badges just recently and they are spot on.

Either you take the hit of the NRE for just you, or you find some others who also want them to share the costs.

Cheaper is to find a damaged/broken st/stm for this than production.
I don't' have any but stf/stfm either or a nice falcon 060 :).

Given the lack of availability of 520ST badges I may have to go for an 520STFM version and hope that it has the same dimensions.

Well, just comparing and measuring the 520ST and the 2 STE's I have here I can certify that they are all the same size.

Thanks. I've added a couple of 520STFM badges to my Best order for a refurbed SF-314 drive mechanism (long button). I can use one to test how easy it is to disguise the small 'FM' next to the 'T'

Well, after my previous message Brad said that they'd found a couple of ST(M) badges in the zip-lock bag with the STFM badges in it and he said that he'd put those in the order instead... Fantastic!

Except...

When the parcel arrived today they were just SFTM badges. Oh well.
