Downsizing Collection

After years and years of collecting radios I have finally run out of room, and that dreaded word "downsizing" has reared its ugly head. Not all my hundreds of prized possessions are for sale, but if you see something you must have please email for a complete description. Then you can decide what you want to pay for it. I will accept offers only. There are not going to be any lists, and nothing will be priced ahead of time. Shipping will be added to the selling price. Just click on the rectangular button called Collection and make up your wish list. Please remember that my usual For Sale list with descriptions and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.

FADA 605 item #1774
Beautiful condition FADA Model 605 radio. Bakelite case has a great shine with no damage. Chassis was restored and the radio works fine. All original knobs, dial, back, and label on bottom. This is the later Model 605 that uses miniature tubes. You won't find one of these in better condition. Picture coming.

$95.00      condition: excellent

Stromberg Carlson 410H item #1773
Stromberg Carlson Model 410H from 1940. They build quality radios. The nicely detailed cabinet was also built by Stromberg Carlson and has the original sticker inside. It can use some touching up but it is solid. One of the wood bars over the speaker is missing. Either take off the remaining bar, center it, or find replacements (many radio cabinets had these bars over the speaker/grill cloth). The chassis is untested since the power cord is cut. It looks complete and is in very nice condition. Look at the depth of the chassis - only Stromberg Carlson and Zenith give you this much depth so a cinch to work on. It is a power transformer chassis with 2 bands (broadcast, short wave) and a phono input which means you can plug in your IPOD, MP3 etc. The field coil speaker is decent sized and I am sure once restored will sound great. Original knobs left and right but replacement in center. Dial looks good. Original label on bottom. Special deal - $60 including shipping.

$60.00      condition: fair

Zenith 6S527 item #1772
Selling a Zenith Model 6S527 for parts or repair. Wood case in condition as shown. I pulled the transformer chassis out (plenty of dust) and it is all original including Zenith tubes (7H7, 7B8, 7A8, 7B6, 6K6, 6X5). Field coil speaker is not damaged. Power cord dried out and brittle so it is untested. Dial needs cleaning. Knobs missing. Brass plate with Zenith on it missing from under the pushbuttons. Back antenna intact. Sold complete or for parts - let me know what you need.

Zenith L518 Clock Radio item #1771
Watch this space as I will be using it to list one radio from my collection each week. Here is a Zenith Model L518 clock radio in beautiful condition. All original right down to a complete set of labels on the bottom. Everything is working of course. I do not think you will find one of these in better condition and that's why it was in my collection (but not for long).

$95.00      condition: excellent

Airline 94BR-1531A item #1769
One of my favorite Airline radios in red - Model 94BR-1531A. The case does not have any cracks or chips, but there is some dirt and spots on the finish. These may come out when cleaning the cabinet, but it will still look considerably better once cleaned. The cord is cut so it is being sold untested. The plastic dial is in good condition and it is a rarity to find it this way. The original bullet knobs are the icing on the cake. I am selling the radio for $35 in as found condition, or $65 with the electronics restored and the case cleaned/polished.

$35.00      condition: fair

Motorola 65T21 item #1768
Nicely styled Motorola Model 65T21 (chassis HS67). Wood case is solid but the finish has some wear and scratches. If you removed just the lacquer finish, lightly sanded, and then reapplied the finish it would look very nice. The front burled wood look ads a lot to the appearance and that only needs to be cleaned. The radio initially did not power up and when I removed the chassis I found an open field coil in the speaker. I replaced it with a permanent magnet speaker and it now works and sounds really good (aside from a scratchy volume control - just needs some spray). The rest of the chassis has its original parts but still plays extremely well without hum. This is a transformer powered chassis with 6 tubes so that is why it sounds so good. Also receives both broadcast and short wave bands (it has a built in antenna system for AM and short wave with a clip if you want to add an external antenna). Rest of radio had its original parts including the 4 knobs and a full label on bottom. Even the decals above the knobs are fully intact and readable. The dial looks good (the light spot in the bottom lower left is the remains of a spider web will come right off) It will be a good radio for the price either refinished or just left as found (use a little Howards Restor A Finish and it will hide the surface wear and look twice as good as it looks now).

AtwaterKent 48 item #1766
I am selling another radio from the collection of Edward Duda, Chief Design Engineer for Lafayette Electronics. He had a huge shop in his basement and made many custom radios and amplifiers. I was lucky to attend the auction of his estate and bought some nice stuff. The AK 48 I am offering here was completely rebuilt and restored by him. He added a solid state power supply that he fit into the case alongside the original chassis (this was originally a battery set). The insides of the radio are immaculate, The radio works but the volume is low (I had it going into a horn speaker for an authentic sound experience). There are 5 matching Hytron VT 67's (they are similar to a 30 tube) and a 31 output tube. The 2 front controls on the right (rheostats) are a bit sensitive to set because you are adjusting the RF and detector tube circuits. Also, he added a small pot that provides a fine control of the filament voltages inside the cabinet. The wood case is in great condition with the brass AK emblem on the outside and the serial number plate on the inside. The front is also beautiful. This radio has a great deal of provenance to anyone who collects vintage radios, or has memories of Lafayette Electronics. If you do a Google search of Edward Duda/Lafayette Electonics you can find pictures of his shop and some of his collection in the basement.

Hammond Power Transformers item #1765
Have 2 new Hammond 6K56VG power transformers. One is in its original box. Specs - PRI:110-120V, 50/60HZ, SEC 540VCT @120DCMA, 5V @3A, 6.3V @3.5A. More then enough amps to handle those high tube count radios or amplifiers that use 5 volt rectifier tubes. Price is for each.

$35.00      condition: excellent

Unknown TRF Radio item #1763
Kinda neat looking TRF radio from about 1937. The wood case is in excellent condition with just one surface mark on the top front (the slits on the bottom left and right are part of the cabinet design). The chassis is unmarked but when I took it out of the cabinet and checked the tubes I found one that said Coronado. It is a 5 tube (25Z5, 43, 6C6, 6C6 + ballast) AC/DC set. As long as I had it out I replaced all the paper and electrolytic caps and it is playing with good sensitivity and selectivity (surprising for a TRF set). Can't say what is original and what is not but it still looks and sounds nice. On the back of the chassis is a switch that controls the pilot lamp.

$50.00      condition: good
