I have not been able to find a wiring diagram / schematic for the Buckingham ac electric 7 tube chassis . This was new in 1928.
Initially advertised as a six tube chassis with a 280 rectifier.
The tube line up was four 226, one 227, one 171 , and a 280 rectifier.That to me is a 127 tube chassis. Buckingham mainly supplied radios as chassis only for distributors to put in their choice of cabinets bur also did sell in cabinet sets as well.
Riders has only the model 80 being an 8 tube chassis. When looking at a top view of the chassis all seven tubes are in a row and not staggered.
I have searched the American Radio History site and as yet have not found anything other than advertisement.

Thanks,
Henry

Acme Electric Co. Model A.C.7 employed the same line-up.
N.air's copy is hard to read.

The schematic can also be found in Gernsback's Service manual one.

Greg,
Thanks for the response. I had not decided to go the route of other radio brands using the same line up yet. I am hoping to find actual documentation by Buckingham which I realize may be a stretch.
I do appreciate your response.
Henry
