Some interesting info about the Cheney company that made all these catches and hinges.
While looking for a supplier, I discovered that Cheney went out of business sometime in 2000.  A link took me to a page of the Serious Fraud Squad, where it is stated that certain people had cleared out the entire  £3 Million pension fund!!
Imagine the poor people who worked their entire lives there, to find they now have no pension.
Here is a link, interesting reading. The Cheney £3 million pension fund theft

If you don't see what you are looking for, don't be afraid to ask I may well have something suitable. 
I don't have any original Blue or Cream covering material.  If you know where I can source some, then please let me know.

RETURNS POLICY

All spares are covered by the Amp-Fix guarantee. Any items found to be unsatisfactory can be returned for a full refund.  I will accept returns of heads for use on tape echo units providing you have used the leads supplied.  Any that have had other wires soldered to the pins will be rejected.  Contact amp-fix before returning any spares for credit.

NOTE: It is important that you provide your full and correct address, in the format used by your country. I can not be held responsible for missing parts if I don't have your full and correct address.  Due to shipments claimed not to have been delivered, all items will now be shipped 'tracked and signed for'.

PAYPAL It is important that your PayPal profile and address details are correct and up to date, because I ship to the address you have registered with PayPal, it will be on my notification when you have paid your invoice. I then copy and paste it on to your shipping label, therefore it is up to you to get it right, preferably with Capital letters where they should be, including the post code capitals and central space.  The correct postcode format is EX22 4QA not ex224qa as they so often are.  Its also a good idea to put the town / city / county then we're in with a chance if the post code is wrong.  If you use a different email for paypal to the one you use to contact me, I will need your PayPal email address when I send the PayPal invoice, otherwise you won't get it and I have to resend it again to the correct one!  If someone else is to be paying on your behalf, it's helpful to me if I know who to send the invoice to before I actually send it!
