I redid a RCA 19K, a very similar design, finished it a couple month ago. . Works great after a chassis rework. Be very careful replacing the chassis, it required pressure, due to the spring metal braces, to get it where it's supposed to be. I didn't have it completely lined up, and broke the dial glass. Radiodaze manufactures them, so will have to order one, $40 wasted due to stupidity.

Thanks all you guys for the feedback, I ordered the correct ones, and thinking how in the hell Im going to get this horrible black knobs detach, they glued them with some type of epoxy :roll: .......


Simple, there's no reason to save or preserve those knobs so just get a large pair of pliers and crack them into little pieces and extract them that way. Just try not to scratch up the radio in the process. Once the knobs are off, then you can remove the chassis and clean or chip off the glue from the shafts. It's no big deal, you just need to use a little patients.


Thanks,

It’s going to be tight and precise operation and not scratching this beautiful wood :shock:

Hi Frank,

Sorry to hear that, in this vintage apparatus all details counts I guess. I need to pull out the chasis and start changing paper caps, but I need some assistance regarding the type of caps or where should I get them. Thanks.

OK, here's another idea. Get a soldering iron and carefully melt away the plastic center of each knob until they become loose and slide off. I suggest you do this in a well ventilated area.

Thanks, it seems a good plan, as soon I get the replacements, the operation will start.

Hello Gustavo

I love everything about this restoration: beautiful Deco radio, adventure, great condition, and wonderful history. You're doing a good thing preserving it!
