I just picked up a Radiola 26 for a very good price. It’s complete with good tubes and speaker. Only problem is no speaker grill.
First question. It looks like there are two styles, one where the holes are straight across except for the middle one which is higher and the second style where the holes slope down on both sides from the middle. Any idea how to tell which one I need.
Second question. I have access to CNC woodworking equipment. Would anyone be so kind as to post the dimensions for the grill when I figure out which one I need?
Thanks in advance as always.

Save images to your computer.
I think that the bottom one is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye... :)

Edit: another shot.

That will help a bunch. I agree the bottom one looks better.
Thanks.

Another question. There are a couple of metal clips in the cabinet that look like they are what holds the grill closed. Does the grill have a couple of wires in the top that snap in these clips?
Thanks
