This was a collection that was donated. It was comprised of complete radios, projects and parts chassis. I was able to preserve and restore many of the table radios including a collection of Zenith TOs not pictured here, The parts chassis were mostly scavenged for usable parts to take up less space and make accessing the spare parts easier. Some of the AA5 and other 1940s radios were sold to the public as those are outside of the scope of the collection/display. Many of the console project radios were donated to Skip, a friend, and guy with more storage space. Very little was thrown away and I consider that a success.
The radios pictured below were electrically restored by finding and replacing most of the original parts, most significantly finding and restuffing the original capacitors that had been lost. Most of the cabinets needed to be refinished.
Other radios from this collection have been discussed in greater detail in earlier posts, below.
I want to again thank contributors in helping me make these radios available to view and study by me and other radio enthusiasts.
