Hello,
This is another chassis I bought at a garage sale this morning. This one is my first choice to remove the power transformer from. It also uses 2.5 volt and 5 volt filaments only. It has three 24s, two 27s, two 45s and an 80. There isn't any name or model number on the chassis. The chassis tag only lists patents. Does anyone recognize this chassis ?
Thanks for looking,
Ed

Thank you, JnTX .

I found the schematic for this in riders volume one, under the name wholesale radio service.
Thanks again.

Well, Lafayette may have sold those chassis, but someone else made it. A private label manufacturer such as U.S. Radio and Television or Wells Gardner.
Lafayette was a catalog mail-order retailer. Sort of like Montgomery Wards, but mostly focused on radio.
