Having bought a ratty looking E3 in that exact color combo, I questioned it's originality since there didn't seem to be another example pictured online. Never the less, I restored the cosmetics as found, even saving the inner green paint. It's great to finally see another example, not too mention the entire ensemble...the full effect is striking. Thanks Dave.

Thanks for the kind words. I had purchased the speaker from a fellow forum member a while back and had been looking for the matching set. Thankfully Jimmy (Atwaterkentrus) contacted me when he spotted the set on E-Bay---glad he did! It appears the model 45 is the only green and black set to match the E-3 speaker. Thankfully the model 45 is a great playing early TRF. In fact the model 45(green&black) and 44 (brown) are essentially identical sets with only a slight change to the power supply. The 44 has a wirewound regulator whereas the 45 does not. Both these models are one of my favorite early TRF sets. They perform exceptionally well.

Thanks to all for the kind words!

Dave

I took the plunge and picked up this 1969 SONY TC-630 reel to reel system today. At $50 I think I did OK but only time will tell. The guy had it playing when I got there and before I could say anything the motor stopped. Hopefully it's just the 1.5uf capacitor. You can see where the reels stopped. He then hooked up an ipod to the inputs to show that everything else worked. It sounded surprisingly good.

Motor cap is bad most likely.

Got these two items free at a local Church yard sale today. The cabinet is in poor condition but I may be able to do something with it.

Marconi model 4547 around 1963 perhaps?
Image

and a Hammond F-2000. I have no idea what I will do with a Hammond F-2000?
Image

The tube line up in the console
Image

and the Garrard Model A changer

Image


Guess what! I can't believe this. I opened up the Hammond organ to see what was powering the organ. This is what I found.

Image

I certainly did not expect to find a real nice condition NAD 3124 Stereo amplifier. That is certainly one way to make a repair. It was simply set in there with metal bands attached to the two bottom feet.

Image

That was worth dragging this thing home. To make it even funnier, today I received in the mail an NAD 3225PE amp that I bought last week. Who was to know I would find a better one for free....

Froze my tail off waiting 40 minutes at an auction today for decent looking bakelite Wards Airline.
I stopped at $20 and final bid was $55. EESSSHH!!
On the way home I caught the last day and last hour of an estate sale in a nearby small town.
$1 fill the box. Wahooo!!!
Allied model 2682 multi-band radio works well except for a scratchy volume control.
North American small reel to reel player seems to function fine.
Note the one tape marked Apollo IV flight and walk on the moon. Kinda cool.
Realistic MP-30 20 watt amp w/ mic. No need for this but flippable at around $20.
Lincoln Allied Radio Corp headphones.
And the smallest receiving set in the world. :lol:

RCA 811k, $25, huge garage sale. Guy said it worked a year ago but we all know that one. That icky replacement grill cloth, homemade labels (which are gone already), and a not so good refinish though. At least it's not painted. Took the chassis out and 3 pounds of old mud daubers nest fell out so if it did work, which I doubt, he's lucky he didn't burn his house down. Threw some new filters in it but no go, just a slight hum from the speaker, which has a partial cardboard baffle, hmmm. Power tuning works, sort of. Has rubber wire syndrome but not as bad as some I've seen. Maybe I should have looked it over a little better but the tenite is as good as any you come across and it has all the original knobs. Looks like it will be the next project for a while.

Drove an hour and waited 2 hours, so I wasn't going to go home empty handed. After buyer's premium, sales tax and credit card sur charge, I was in this for $135

I have always liked this model of Stewart Warner speaker. I believe you got it for a good price as well ! Good find.

Sold a bunch of stuff at a radio swap meet. Came home with two HUGE radios.
One is a Philco. The model no. is inside so I am too lazy to look now. But its a monster sized table top set. Looks almost European. Has a retractable antennae that comes out of the top.

Image

The other one is a rather large Grundig. Works great actually. I just need to go through it and clean it up, check all the caps and innards.

Bought a whole lot of vacuum tubes this weekend from 2 flea markets, over 300. The best were 2 NOS Philco 6AB5 eye tubes I found in a box lot from today. Probably be looking to offload some in the classifieds in the future.

Picked up an Airline 62-350 yesterday off Craig's List. A recap got the radio playing. Looks like I will need to find a replacement for a button that was missing, figure out how the push button assembly goes together (it was all out of whack when I opened up the case like someone was in there before), and also will have to paint the case because there is a small crack that I will need to repair. I guess I can leave the case as it is as long as I stabalize the crack. I will have to determine what I want to do about that.
