OK, I bought this three hours ago. I was looking for info on the model and the only hit I got was for the one I bought! Now can someone tell me something about it? Schematic, etc?

I have no idea if these images will come through, but I'll try to post below.

Congratulations!

Do you know a model number? What's the tube line -up? Any tags or labels on the chassis or inside the cabinet?

Pics didn't come through. :( If you edit them to be 800x800 or smaller and save them as .jpgs with a medium level of compression, you can attach the pics to your post (no external hosting site required). Use the "upload attachment" area just beneath the edit box. Up to 10 pics may be added to each post.

Below is the closest I could find without a model number when I searched last night.

Hover your cursor over the picture your want to see, right click on it and choose open in a new tab...and you'll be able to see that picture in the new tab.

Interesting, thanks, Terry.

I think it looks more like this 10-tube Belmont 1070 by its chassis layout. Cabinet appears to match, too.

Is the tube lineup a match?

Here are the pics. Thanks for the 800px info, I was trying for full size. The only number I can read is stamped on the chassis.
The dial is what attracted it to me and the mechanism is like a clockwork. It needs restringing and cleaning. It is not corroded at all but does have a lot of dried grease. Any and all advise will be greatly appreciated.

That “B.R.C.” At the bottom of the dial certainly seems to indicate it’s a Belmont product...
