Just picked up a Canadian Westinghouse Model W-559-A. I haven't been able to find any information have checked my RCC files as well as other sites but haven't found anything. I noticed it is quite similar to the Model W-552-B almost same cabinet just different where the grill is. The tube line up is the same as well 2A7,58,2B7,2A5,80. as well as the dial face and knobs. I have the schematics for the Model W-552-B Model however it is so blurry next to impossible to compare it to my wiring, capacitors and resistors. My guess because of the tubes it was made around 1939-1940. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I see that tube line-up for a Canadian Westinghouse W-560A for 1939-40. Might that one be close enough?

Thanks Greg and Bugman for the information the Model 560-A is close but there is differences such as three switches on the front and some having a phono input the schematic will be good for comparison. I have added some photos showing the three different models first the Model 559-A showing front , back, and data plate, next the model 552-A which has same schematic as Model 552-B and last the Model 560-A. Hopefully somebody has the Model 559-A schematic or a good copy of the Model 552-A or B schematic. Special Thanks to the Radio Museum I borrowed their picture of the Model 560-A

Thanks Agian

My Canadian radio resources jump from 558-A to 560-A. I have checked adjacent years with no success.

Thanks Bugman for further searching, my RCC Westinghouse files jump past Model 559-A as well. I'm in the process of removing chassis and comparing wiring diagrams. I used photoshop on the model 552-A schematic and increased image 10 percent at a time so as not to lose any pixalation. I can now read the model 522-A good enough to compare it to my model. However I'm still looking for the Westinghouse Model 559-A schematic.

Thanks Again
