Jerome makes an aluminum back stand for the PL-880

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Jerome van der Linden, who writes:

Hello Thomas,
I have managed to break three of these flimsy PL-880 back stands, and thought, “how hard can it be to make one out of metal?”

These two photos are the result from a piece of aluminium that I had in the shed (yes I know you guys call it aluminum) . Here’s hoping it lasts longer!

I love it, Jerome.  I’m willing to bet your backs tand will outlast the PL-880 now!

Thanks for sharing. I love this simple aluminium (remember, I lived in Europe–ha ha) solution! 🙂

Spread the radio love

    Good idea, paint it black and it will be unnoticeable; my only doubt is about the fact that, once folded, the metal stand may act as a shield for the internal ferrite loopstick …
