This Zenith 6-S-222 is in for restoration. This table top black dial radio is good condition. The chassis will receive the complete restoration and the cabinet will receive attention too.
All speaker coils, oscillator coils and transformers have been ohmed out and show good cold resistance. The volume control seems good electrically. It will need to have a key inserted through a chassis hole to keep it still. Not using a chassis hole key is probably why the nut worked loose.
Here are some pictures.
This is the restored cabinet. The left and right side veneer developed separation and lifted from the base.
The left side (facing front) veneer has been removed and replaced with new African Mahogany. The Right side lifted area had wood glue injected under the veneer between the grain. I used a professional high strength water resistant glue. The new mahogany was stained, grain filled and toned to match the original hue. Several coats of Minwax finishing past wax was applied.
