I use Windows paint.

Just open the picture in it, click on resize, click pixels and the larger number change to 800. Your picture is then the proper size.

6 months ago I found a really nice bench at a tag sale. I bought it and put it aside to restore in the spring. I ended up selling it about 3 months later when I needed the room. This part kills me... about a week later I found an Atwater Kent 37 Modernistic radio and speaker. While googling it I found a photo of it on a stand with a bench. MY BENCH! The bench I just sold was to this set. I tried to buy it back but he was not willing to sell it back to me. Today a miracle happened. No, I did not get the bench.... BUT I did get the stand from a local antique place!!!!
I saw it in the corner under some other stuff at a friends shop. I was astatic to say the least and had to google it to make sure it was the right one. It has been painted but that will strip off and it will get a proper repaint. I wrote to the bench guy one more time so wish me luck... I also found this GE portable model JB? at a flea market. They had a beautiful GE L-915 console but I passed.. Even at $50.00 I just don't have room.

Here are some photos:

Also picked up a TV-2/U tester.


We've had a few of these pass through our museum. Believe it or not they don't have as much value as the smaller TV-7. The only reason we can think of as to why is that it takes forever to setup a test on TV-2 testers and so many probably view using them as more of a hassle. But no doubt- excellent machines!

The AK 37 Modernistic is said to be made in 1928. I am ecstatic about the find. The bench loss is killing me though... I just need to be happy for the stand find though.. It was a miracle it found me...

I found that by opening up a picture that I have saved in a separate folder, then right clicking on it I get the option to resize it. Thats what I am using.

Okay this is a bit off-subject, but......I went to a sale for a Heathkit EA2 amp and came home with a midget metal lathe. I didn't arrive until the second day. First day they wanted $25 for it and had no takers so second day they had marked it down to a total of $10 which I couldn't get out of my wallet fast enough. Sale was on the south-side of Chicago which I can only assume must have scared people away. I'm sure I can find a radio around here that needs something turned. Or maybe use it as a coil winder? Or maybe just admire it as it sits on a shelf in my bookcase? I posted it at the old wood working (and metal working) machinery site and so far it remains unidentified so it must be rather rare. Unfortunately the po is deceased. I'm sure he turned over a couple times given what it went for.

I felt so guilty paying so little for the lathe I bought a bunch of other stuff and by the time I left I had spent almost 2 bills. I did get the EA2 and an assortment of 2000-era speaker drivers. 4 Vifa tweeters, 2 special Seas tweeters and a pair of Dynaudio woofers. In researching the drivers, I discovered the Dynaudio and Seas drivers were oe on the Canadian made Totem Model 1 speaker. The Seas tweeters have a plastic cylinder glued on the back apparently to lower resonate freq and modified by Solen for Totem. I wonder if they are defects or something? How did a set of drivers for a Canadian speaker company find their way to an elderly guys house in Chicago? The Dynaudio woofers are model 15w-75 4ohm and are only about 125mm diameter, but have relatively huge 75mm voice coils. Haven't had time to test any of it, but thought it was odd they were at the sale. Never know what you might find at some of these things.

My day has been great for finds...

50 radios for $150.00!
Not...
But The guy for the bench did write to me and say he would trade me the bench back for a Stromberg wall phone I was selling.
He had it upholstered and it looks fantastic but red will not do unfortunately.

Here is the bench back in my possession... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Now I have the radio, bench, and stand. I will have to strip and repaint the stand and bench but I am very happy now.

Kirk,
Sounds like you’re getting some of those good Karma points redeemed!!

You can always dye the cushion on that.

Wow, congratulations Kirk! That indeed is great Karma!

Are you planning to reupholster with a velvet cloth as in the photo you found?

Thanks guys,
I am planning on doing the bench properly. I feel bad undoing the leatherwork but I could always cut a new board and make a second seat. I bought leather paint to see if it will look ok just painted but I think it will be something I cant live with.. It needs the mohair seat fabric...

I think I figured out the resizing so here goes. First is the Continental with the hidden antenna. Then next is the Sparton with battery eliminator.

Guess they still need work.



Questions, are these the correct knobs for the Sparton and does anyone know the correct knobs for the Continental?

Just got this Radiola RS. It is in such nice condition I was wondering if it was a fake. Looks real to me.
The WD 11 tubes show 2.7 ohms on the filaments (good). The transformer measures 1k primary and 14k secondary, seems good to me.
Amazing condition, maybe refinished?

Our radio club had a great give away Saturday. A widow wanted to get rid of her husband's pile of radios. You paid $5 to get your name in a random pool that put you in a line to pick out radios from certain groupings. They were all table tops and included more than 50 Zenith TO 3000s, 18 tubs of tubes, dozens of transistors, dozens of parts/unknown condition sets. There were some I would call "A" list or top shelf. I was #25 in, so most of the good stuff was gone. I did get 3 TO 3000-1, 2 are very good, one for parts. The little Zenith bakelite is the 4K616, in excellent shape. Still, a good haul for $5. There are a few more not pictured. The Emerson case is empty (rats).
