Default Heathkit Thumbtach help!

Hello all,
I went to use my trusty old Thumbtach the other day and it did not function, I assumed the battery was dead
and took the housing apart to replace it and found the red (+) wire from the battery had broken off from the circuit board.

Does anyone out there have a Heathkit Thumbtach model GD-69 that they could post a photo of the circuit board showing the attachment point of this wire as I don't have a schematic. Many Thanks.


Happy flyin' Oscar

Type in the search bar,,, Heathkit Thumbtach schematic. that will take you to the Heathkit schematics website and you will find it there.

The Positive Red wire goes to the #2 post on the switch
