IMG_0763

I'm parting out this old homebrew radio.

IMG_0753

It has four Pacific rheostats,

two with porcelain bodies

IMG_0754

and two with Bakelite bodies.

It has part of a plug-in spider-web coil with adjustable coupling.

Another view of the adjustable coil socket, and a SPST toggle switch.

There are three Dublier 0.5 mfd condensers, some fairly dirty

IMG_0765

and some fairly clean.

IMG_0756

There are two Capacigrad straight-line wavelength tuning capacitors

with brass plates. The second one doesn't have the manufacturer's name on the back plate, but it's clearly of the same pattern.

I haven't checked the audio interstage transformer to see if the windings are intact. There are also four four-pin tube sockets, a grid-leak capacitor with grid-leak resistor clips,

IMG_0760

and several miscellaneous resistor clips.

It has two sets of battery and antenna Fahnstock clip strips.

Finally, it has two telephone-style phone jacks.

The base and panel are available, too.

Sold to Norm at one of the NEARC shows.
