Imperial Officer Rank Bar Buttons/Caps (2019)

Post by domz » Tue Jun 05, 2018 6:11 pm

Just an update on where (and how) to get those buttons.

Location
Federal Components Pte Ltd
10 Jalan Besar #02-06/07
Sim Lim Tower S’pore 208787
Tel: 62938983
Fax: 62913947
http://www.federalcomponent.com.sg/

Reservations / Product Code
Do call ahead or email to ensure they have enough quantity. Cite the product code. For example:
10 x EO 51-901.6 blue
5 x EO 41-903.2 red
etc
Of course you can try to buy from elsewhere. The products above are for the button caps made by EAO AG.

Be prepared for using alternatives. The 41-903.2 is transparent and the red buttons can look slightly orangeish. But you can add white glue behind the backing to reduce this effect (just be extra careful not to let any glue get between the white backing and the red cap. The 51-901.6 is translucent, not transparent. Removing the protruding pegs from the white backing can be harder.

The staff at Federal know about us and are very friendly.

Colour-matching and Prices
There is actually a variety of alternative products and they all look slightly similar, so please visually check every button to make sure the colours match etc.

Try to get the type with two-prong plastic backing (41-903) as that backing may be easier to remove:

The variety of sources also means the prices may not be the same. Generally each cap sells for $3.50 plus 7% GST. If they run out, they might substitute with something almost identical but with some price difference.

Validity
This information is correct as of 10 Jan 2019.
