Right side retainer snapped off.  Needs re-attachment.

AC power from leg

Antenna and ground connector on opposite rear leg.

New hindge.

IMG_5867.JPG (1362477 bytes)

Ugly but functional.

I found a loose wire under the chassis at the point of this burn. You can see the wire fragment on the lower right of the chassis.

That is the outer "spaghetti". The wire insulation is in tact. 

IMG_5877.JPG (744007 bytes)

AC HV secondary. 

Dodgy power switch may need replaced.  IMG_5878.JPG (728627 bytes)

#80 filament. 

IMG_5879.JPG (768493 bytes)

Filament string, no tubes installed. 

IMG_5880.JPG (828851 bytes)

Field coil connection to ground.  Negative?!

IMG_5881.JPG (767224 bytes)

B+ on another tube. 

IMG_5882.JPG (766653 bytes)

22v ac ripple on B+ no tubes. There was absolutely no hum at the end of the DBT procedure (direct line power). 

IMG_5883.JPG (727071 bytes)

I find a DBT is more convenient than a Varriac and a meter compliment. 

Once populated with all tubes and increasing the DBT wattage I plugged it directly in to the mains.  It sounded great.  No hum.  No arching on the burned 80 socket.  
1.6MB wmv file of the radio operating.           

Disassembly of table for shipping. 

IMG_5953.jpg (213234 bytes)

All joints marked with a reference designator. 

IMG_5954.jpg (168931 bytes)

Fortunately there was no glue to contend with.  

IMG_5955.jpg (215515 bytes)

If there was glue it was not working.

I have not weighed the wood.  

The table top is 33x32"

The packing slip from Greyhound is marked 45lbs total.  

IMG_5972.jpg (1800203 bytes)

This compacts to 33x32x12 inches with out clearance. 


The chassis is 39lbs, speaker 25lbs

IMG_5973.jpg (360065 bytes)

Chassis 24x11.5x6.5 inch

Speaker 12x12x8 inches.


The USPS  will not ship a package with the total package length of this table assembled. 

And the weight with chassis and speaker is prohibitive.

Chassis and speaker.
