English radio from the 50s
This is the final result.
Biy, I'm glad this one is finished. It took alot of work and the result
is an impressive radio with BIG sound. The problems I ran across are too numerous
to mention and the quantity of bad components was staggering. Plus it needed
a total re-veneering.
But you don't get this much
satifaction and pride from just changing a tube. Excuse me, Tony, a "valve".
Did I mention it had alot of parts?
And no more rats nest!
What a dial!!!
The chassis rust was insurmountable. Still need to equip it with a new
tuning eye tube and a light bulb for a dial lamp. The little speaker was
temporary. The cabinet has two 8-inchers.
Special kudos go to Tony Thompson in the UK for providing tips, etc
on the way they build em over there.
