    It's a pawn that goes to a tiny chess board.

    Seriously though, it looks a knob of some sort.

    Where did you find it? Did it fall out somewhere, or was it just laying somewhere?

    I was being a little firm pulling out the transport and I heard a click and it was bouncing around in there. It does look like something that should go outside, but I can't find a picture of anything that looks like it

    It doesn't belong to the 234.

    Looks like a knob to fasten a panel closed.

    I'm getting better though....... .especially after getting intimate with this machine yesterday.... Does the 234 have idler tires? I don't remember seeing any, but I'll go to start the machine and it will click off right away and the rewind and fast forward don't move. (I made sure the cam gear was in the slot)
