Found a 1935 Rogers 10 12. I just finished unloading it. It really is a beast. Chrome chassis, power supply and speaker are excellent. The cabinet needs some minor trim work.

Great find Tony'
They don't come up very often and you have the clock and power supply.
I have done two of these and the caps are not too bad to do, but there are a lot of them
I just hope it has good 6F7M tubes as they are hard to get .
I see in the photo of the chassis,, there is a tube socket that someone has been messing with, and it looks like that is where one of those tubes would go.
You probably will need new 24 volt bulbs for the tuning indicator.
Email me when you need them and I can give you the numbers of the bulbs that work in there.
Consider yourself lucky to get one of these and you are right they are heavy.

Tony,, I see that part of the grill work is missing.
I had the same thing on one of mine and I had to build a piece to fit in there but it was not too bad.
I do have some photos showing what I did ,,if you are interested.

Wow, Tony, that's quite a radio! I hope you post some "after" pictures when you're done.

Just picked up this Philco 37-630T for $40.00 and about 210 miles of travel. It's missing a piece of trim on the bottom right side (not shown) but it's in pretty good shape overall. Missing the main tuning knob, which is easy to find. It was playing when I got there but had an old TV antenna attached to it! That got thrown away. :P

Finds:

Stuff...
I bought a Zenith 6G601? and some test equipment. Then when on eBay I saw this Radiola III newly listed. I did not care about the unit but the Barkelew switch that was attached to it. Last is another Zenith 5-S-319 in amazing shape. I found it on LetGo of all places...

Ok Im done for the year... I swear....
A Silver model 185

This was a stupid buy. I broke my rule.....!
I hit the auto bid 3 times in the last 10 seconds. I won it for $200.00 in this condition. It will be an easier restore as the veneer is black so I dont have to match grains too much and the trim is just half round. Hopefully the electronics are ok.

Kirk,
I watched that for a while but did not like it enough .Are the Philco knobs correct for this radio? You will make it look like new I'm sure.

No, the originals as far as I can tell are hexagonal.
Thanks, I will try to restore it like it deserves.

Went to a garage sale with my XXYL ( wife to you non hams) on the other side of our town. Lots of antiques. While roaming around in the basement I was able to pick a few items. Two pipe clamps, Weller 100/125 watt solder gun, miter clamp, and a palm sander. All for $15.00

A loss .. Some lucky sod got this just before I did according the CL poster who sent the "Sorry, it sold" email. Rats! They wanted $100 for it, not
sure of the model, I saw one like it when doing a search on American Bosch but no models. Radiomuseum didn't have this one in the gallery. I hesitated for 8 hours, went to bed, woke up early realizing what a fool I was ... I hope an ARF or CHRS member got it.

Sorry you missed it, those are beautiful radios!

Life can really get in the way of radios.
Dan,
It appears the SC models 10 and 11 use the same chassis.

The Philco knobs are hexagonal (6 sides). I believe the knobs shown in the Silvertone screen shot are octagonal (8 sides).

A small sample of the 290 Germanium Transistors I picked up at a hamfest. 232 pieces are 2N167s and marked USAF. The 2N167s were used as as switching transistors in building early computers.

58 pieces are 2N21As, (NOS). The 2N21 was THE first transistor which was mass produced. It is also the lowest number transistor in the 2N series. How cool is that?

All the date codes indicate 1955-1957. Real early transistors and a chunk of cold war history!

Mitch, that's cool! Those little things were probably built like mini tanks. I'm sure someone can make good use of them today to restore some equipment.

Picked a Holiday 6 transistor - model unknown. A Borg crystal set. Two wires, one with an alligator clip. I don't know if the other wire should have a clip, or if it is just an antenna as is. I get 3 stations when it is clipped to a light switch screw. A Reddy Kilowatt pot holder.

Acquired a Western Air Patrol W492. 13 tubes, chrome chassis. Needs lots of work.
