So this was $350.00 for over a year. The antique shop was always very expensive and last month they went under. They lowered it's price 3 times and now it is $75.00. I was thinking of saving it but is there anything I need to know?
Pot metal?
potted caps?
Rubber wire?
?

Thanks,
Kirk

Potmetal is no problem on the 35A, but rubber wire is.

It is full of rubber wire.

The filter capacitors are potted inside of a removable box, but its not too hard to take apart.
Or, just leave it out and install new caps in the void.

Otherwise, audio transformers are often open.

These come in a few variations. the A suffix indicates automatic tuning. P suffix would indicate an electromagnetic or "Power" speaker which uses a #10 output tube.
Some have an X suffix which means it has an extra tube as well as a #50 tube.

Without the P suffix, it will use a horseshoe magnet armature type of speaker and a 71A output tube.

Hope that helps

-Steve
