You need to contact the Douglas club and ask them directly about the key.

Key

Post  kerabo on Mon Sep 17, 2018 6:29 pm

It's gone downhill Jim.
Made a key and attempted to turn the switch and the switch knob shattered.
I shall have to make one as will never find one.
Although I may as well try the club

Knob shattered

Post  piston 197 on Mon Sep 17, 2018 6:35 pm

The Knob should not shatter as it is free turning, if the key was long enough then the knob should have turned with the centre ??

These switches are strippable, but you have to take them in half to get them out of the shell, there are 2 small brass nuts that have to be removed from the underside, these hold the top and bottom of the switch together either side of the shell, unlike the Lucas/Villiers type which have a nut under the knob.

Millers parts

Post  kerabo on Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:01 pm

Had a word Jim.
Very nice guy but parts for Miller are very hard to come by.
Decided to make a key as it's very basic.

Gone and broke the bakerlite knob so have to make one of those as well.

I think the switch may have been seized.
Not a problem. I found a copy from India I can make fit.
