The members of this forum have been helping me, even if you didn't know it. Sometimes through direct questions but as often as not just by reading what's been written. I'd like to thank you all and wish you a Happy New Year. (So you can keep helping me!)
Here is our latest restore.

a 5 band, top of line Model 16B Philco ! The best performing
"Cathedral" radio ever made ! What a pain to restore... full of Bakelite Block caps. But wow... Philco really knew what they were doing (I have one of course)!

Nice radio and restoration. Over the years I've had all of the 16s in five different styled cabinets.

Thanks all for the kind words, remember, you helped. A couple of people should be singled out.

Radio Dale, for giving me the tip about using a hot plate to get the gook out of bakelite caps. works like a charm!

Jim Sargent, for finding the 16B in the first place, thanks Jim

Steve Davis for the face plate. for some reason people like to drill holes in the originals!

All the best in 2019
