Guys,

I managed to get my hands on seven (7) original TBM Avenger Throttle quadrants. These are actual aircraft throttle quadrants removed from TBM aircraft many decades ago and are not replicas. Some are in original "as removed" condition and some appear to be "repainted". Some have the microphone switch/cap and some don't. Personally, I would cut a new cap from a chuck of aluminum and install a reliable SPB105 replica Cobra type horn button if you wanted the button to be functional.

So, if you are looking for a real TBM Avenger throttle quadrant for your 89/92 build or you just want a throttle quadrant for a desk display, etc, just PM me. I'm thinking $425 for the as-removed/missing mic switch/cap and $550 "repainted" with a mic switch/cap... I might even make up a few caps with the replica cobra style horn buttons if anyone is interested...

Pic now attached - Lemme know!

FYI - Lots of interest in the TBM Avenger Throttle Quadrants, they are going fast if you are on the fence...

I am aware that there have been some messaging issues with the site, so I am not sure if everyone reveived their responses.

Regardless, I have a few quadrants left...

So, I have run out of original TBM microphone switches and the corresponding cast aluminum switch caps. I do still have 2 TBM Avenger quadrants available for sale though, obviously - less original switch cap and mic switch.


At the request of a fellow forum member who wanted a complete throttle quadrant, I made a new switch cap and installed a vintage cobra style horn button. While not 100% screen accurate, the idiot spectator bending over to look inside a car, while at the same time scratching the paint with their belt buckle, will never know...

If anyone is interested in either a cap-less quadrant or one with a Cobra type horn button, just PM me.
