AR Folks,

Brand new to the hobby and the forum, looking for some help with a recent acquisition.

I was fortunate enough to be given a 1939 5S338 Chairside that has been modified - the floor of the cabinet was essentially shorn at the base of the chassis box. I'm hoping to reconstruct the base and would be extremely interested/grateful in getting some dimensions of the overall cabinet, and the base in particular. I do have some representative picture I can use as a general guide but it would be ideal to be as close to original as possible.

I did plug it in and it powered up but without noise. There is a speaker but not sure if it works, all TBD. Also interested in any good links for general parts.

Many thanks in advance,
Steve

Steve, don't plug it in and turn it on again until, at the very least, the electrolytic capacitors have been replaced. Otherwise you could damage some expensive components. Sounds like you're new at this, so go here:

There are many similar resources.
There's no rush to get the radio playing, so take your time. :D
