It has been a while since I visited the Philco Repair Bench, and I see that there is a new format and apparently a change in information.

Two of the items that I am looking for are the comparison of dog bone resistor sizes and wattages, and the table of bakelite capacitor blocks. Can anyone redirect me to either of these?

Thanks,

Russ

The Internet Wayback machine has the Philco Repair bench well archived:

https://web.archive.org/web/*/www.philc ... bench.com/

BUT some images, like the dogbones, were not archived:

The cap blocks were:

Thanks Brian!

Too bad about the resistor images, but at least I have the cap info.

For Wattage Rating, Look up the resistors part numbers...
using keyboard shortcut
Ctrl+F on a PC
Cmd+F on a Mac
...in this searchable 1936 catalog→ here.


Alternatively their values can also be found here...

Model 60 changes 1933 - 1936

Thanks Greg!

The catalog is great! I’ll just order all the parts from them directly :D
Seriously though, I’ll print it out, there’s a wealth of information there.

I have pictures of the dogbone resistors that I saved from somewhere. Is this what you are looking for?

I miss the old Philco Repair Bench site too. Unfortunately a lot of things online are going from "free" to "flee."
