This is my radio I picked up awhile ago, just finished up the cabinet. It needed new veneer on the top al the way down the side. Radio does play but not very well I thing a tube mite be going out. Electrical Has been worked on before and the paper electrolytic that was put in there is going to replaced as well. Just have to go thru it. Cabinet turned out very nice, this one is a keeper for now un less I put it up for sale I have to many radios here at my house

Great job as usual Fred. Would like to know the name/brand of the blue paint you use on the inside.

Got the radio playing pretty good now, one tube was shot. I will order a new dial belt and the beige on/off volume knob and a fresh 10 MF electrolytic that should do it.

A master job but I would like to know how you manage to reproduce the tiny letters below the tuning knob!

Those are reproduction decals that you can get at Radio Daze. They make them for antique radios.
