Here is what I have
Nothing new production that is like the original push in turrets Marshall used. Best thing are long eyelets. You need at least .375 and these are hard to find!
I'd be absolutely willing to submit samples of the original eyelets to Keystone or Cambion for duplication and meet the (probable) 10,000 piece minimum order requirements.
Does anyone have a scrap or an eyelet off one of the old boards that could be used as a sample?
they are so rare I recycle them so no!
I'd only need ONE, and it'd be returned after evaluation. Neil, Cambion is in the UK between Manchester and Sheffield. Maybe by chance they're a short drive away from you (I would not know) so perhaps you could let them take a look at some examples and price out a run of replicas.
Why not remove one from the beat up brown board to have replicated ?
I'd rather take one off a scrapper board because I don't know to what extent I'd have to mangle one to remove it from my board, which is still quite usable as it is.
I believe George Metropoulos over at Metropoulos Amplification had the eyelets reproduced for his plexi amps he used to build. He maybe willing to tell you what company he had manufacture his run.
The eyelets on George's commercial boards were thin walled pressed steel slightly fatter than the originals (bit like a taller version of Fender's eyelets. Perfect for first time builders to put wire from underneath and bent-end components in the top but too fat to build in the 69 on type with wires wrapped around the turrets which look far too fat.
