(1) General Electric 125- a nice set in maroon and gold, only cracks are minor (Not all the way through plastic as far as I can tell) around screw holes on bottom of case.....Replaced electrolytic caps and tested tubes (perhaps original and good) already, removed archaic spider from dial window view, powers up and plays on variac, needs leaky coupling caps replaced and will probably be a good runner in service... $20

(2) 1956 Packard Bell 5R1- Fixed crack in bottom of case, slight split above volume knob, otherwise plastic teal case good...Replaced several paper caps and all electrolytics, tubes checked good and replaced where necessary...Powered up, but did not get any reception, loop antenna has torn, though ant. wires twisted together for testing...Sold as/is for further repair or display- $25

(3) General Electric 505 Clock Radio- Received this poorly packed and damaged from the auction site, it was originally brown,
but after re-gluing broken pieces decided to paint it ivory...Untested in service, all seems to be there inside except power cord is cut,- $25

(4) 1938 Arvin model 68- This arrived cracked from poor padding in shipping, I reassembled the pieces and there is now a piece missing on back,
power transformer replaced some time ago and rectifier is now a 6X5, rather than 5Y3 specified in Rider's...powered uop on variac and received some stations, can't recall if I replaced electrolytics or not, probably...Sold as-/is- $25

(5) 1947 Emerson 581-A Ivory Plaskon 5 tuber B.C. set- Found this today at the Senior center thrift store's secret electronics stash room...Been cleaning the redwood dust up...no cracks in ivory plaskon, some very minor surface imperfections from use and wear...Dial cover has warped at one end as well as infamous? psychedelicly aged dial, of course does not harm operation in most cases and dial string tuning is fine...Tubes tested good except for 12SQ7 which I replaced...a few labeled "Emerson" and may be original to set?, replaced electrolytics though other paper caps look funky, changed out #47 pilot and lights bright when first powered on variac at low voltage?? Sold as/is for further troubleshooting...I'll cut the cord before shipping and include A.C. plug if desired- SOLD -

(6) RCA RADIOLA 18- Found at a local thrift store some time ago...Looks to me like someone has worked on it in recent past...
May power up and work just fine, but I have not had a speaker to test, does not include the tubes or lamp hood...Sold as/is $35

(7) AIRLINE Montgomery Ward 14BR-685A- A.C. or D.C. radio from 1941...Resanded top, checked tubes and cleaned up...some minor cracks in escutcheon and dial glass, otherwise nice, sold as/is for further restoration.- $65 OBO

Payment via check, m.o. or paypal FOF, these will ship either UPS or fedex ground, whichever is less...
PM for shipping costs and please provide a ZIP code when inquiring...
