   A family friend spotted this radio in a local antique shop around 2002. The price was rather low, less than $10, so they picked it up for me. It was a sad sight when I first came into possession of it. The whole top of the cabinet had been smashed, the finish was very spotty, not original, and discolored.

    After going over the chassis with all new capacitors, and a power cord it was playing good. The cabinet was another story. I began be dismantling what was left of the inside supports, and re-gluing all of the pieces. It doesn't look perfect, but the only remaining mark on the cabinet of it's previous damage is a horizontal crack on the curved top. The cabinet was refinished using Mohawk brand toner and Deft brand semi gloss lacquer. The end result doesn't look too bad, other than a ragged grill cloth.

  This radio was sold in 2006, part of my continuing downsizing efforts.
