Thanks Dan in Calgary

Tony, That Rogers 10-12 is a steal at that price. Too bad you didn't get it. Don't forget about my power supply

As I understand it, and from what I have heard, if you sell a radio that you have worked on, you are liable if something goes wrong because you were the last person to work on the radio. If you sell it with out the cord, then if the person buying the radio puts a cord on it and something goes wrong,...

Thanks for the schematic, but I can't seem to print it or enlarge it enough to read it.
I will keep trying.
I have the riders books, if you can tell me where it is in there.

Here are some photos of one that I rebuilt form a Rogers 6R932.
I did not take measurements but you can get a pretty good idea comparing the size of the caps I put in it.

It is interesting that I seemed to recognize the dial of that radio. After I searched among my boxed radios I found it I have that same radio with out the cabinet , but mine is the battery set and it came with the battery eliminator., all hooked up with the switch to save power. Now I know where I c...

Those are definitely Marconi knobs. The Marconi console radio model 208 has the same knobs.
The 210 also has the same knobs.
Follow this link and click on model 208/209.and 210

I use the same [good] push buttons for this experiment The push button was set at 660, so I set the other radio as close to 1115 as I could I tried the method of using another radio and listening for the changes as I tuned across the dial. It seemed to work on the A 33 that the push buttons work on ...

Thanks Arran I have done radios with that particular set up. On this one it is a little different and the RCA jack is on the back of the chassis. On this radio there are not three wires coming up to the push buttons. I have the push buttons working on another RCA model A33 , so I know that the push ...

Dale;
Sorry but you have ventured into an area that I am not familiar with.'' LISTEN FOR THE OSCILLATOR''?
I wish I had more insight into the various areas of radio repair. If you could give me some clarification
on how I would do this it probably will be helpful.
Thank you

Thanks Dale; None of the short wave bands work. On the short wave I just get a very low speaker hum [normal]. I have a signal generator, but no frequency counter or scope. I can trace most wiring on a schematic, BUT I find it difficult to follow the schematic when it comes to the band switches. Sorr...

I am sorry I didn't get back you you guys earlier. [under the weather] I have another RCA model A33, so I recapped it and the push buttons work on it. I took the push buttons that work and tried them on the radio that the push buttons don't work. I still have the same problem, but now I know that th...

It looks like it is a part of a volume control with a tap.
You can check the ohms between the two top outside points
and then from one of the outside points and the center [as you rotate the knob].
