Heathkit CT-1 Capacitor Checker item #1784
Nice condition Heathkit Model CT-1 capacitor checker. Eye tube shows condition of capacitor depending on how switch is set (tests for open or short). Works fine (eye tube is bright). Can be used to check paper caps in the circuit (with power off of course). Can also be used on electrolytic caps but only to test if they are open (will not work to test if they are shorted). Comes with instruction sheet and copy of full assembly manual. These go for $50+ on eBay.

1920's Horn Speaker Base and Driver item #1780

Chassis - Unknown Olympic item #1779
This may be an Olympic chassis from a radio record player combination. It has the same tube compliment and layout as a Model 501 but I cannot find that model listed with a record player. The chassis is in good condition with all original parts and features a separate tone control on the left. There is also a switch on the end of a shielded cable that selects radio or phono. The power cord is cut but I jumped one in and I got the radio to play but with hum from the electrolytics so they need replacing at a minimum. Field coil speaker in perfect condition. Nice chassis with RCA phono input so easy to plug in your IPOD or MP3 player.

Custom Built Radio in Atwater Kent Cabinet + Horn Speaker item #1778
This is a Radiotiques exclusive which you will not find anywhere else. It is a one of a kind custom built 5 tube radio chassis that was fitted into an Atwater Kent Model 30 receiver. It came from the basement workshop of the late Ed Duda, legendary Chief engineer and amplifier designer of Lafayette Radio Corp. I was lucky to attend an auction and purchase some of his personal collection. The chassis uses the same front controls as the original AK receiver so it has 3 tuning condensors ganged together and turned with one tuning knob calibrated from 1-100. The on/off switch is the same as in the original AK. On the rear are inputs for a speaker, external antenna (it has an internal loop stick), and an RCA jack to plug in a phono, IPOD, MP3 etc. The AK wooden cabinet is in great shape too. The icing on the cake is the addition of an original AK horn speaker (Model H) in great shape that has a PM speaker mounted inside the horn (another Radiotiques exclusive). It was done in such a way that it can be completely removed by the same 3 screws that hold the horn to the throat of the speaker.base. The whole system has an exquisite 1920's look and works fine. That horn speaker adds a dimension to the music that takes you back to the early days of radio. The price includes the radio and the speaker. This will have to be boxed separately and securely so shipping may be on the expensive side but that depends on where it is going.

Atwater Kent Horn Speakers item #1776
Here is a Radiotiques exclusive. I am offering two Atwater Kent Model L horn speakers. I took out the bad drivers, epoxied one base using JB Weld (it is now stronger then the original mounting), and added a 4" permanent magnet speaker inside each horn. The speakers are held in place with the mounting screws for the horn itself so it is fully reversible in case you have a driver. The finish is all original and the Atwater Kent brass nameplates are still on the front showing the model number. Overall condition is decent considering the age and how beat up these usually are (of course they are easily painted if your really going for a bold look). These would make a great add on speaker to any of your existing radios and really bring you back in time to the 1920's. They will give your music a vintage sound that can only come out of a horn speaker (even with the modern speaker inserted into the horn). I have two and that's it. I am saving the third horn (Model H) for another Radiotiques exclusive that I guarantee is a one of a kind which I will list soon. Please note the two pictures show each speaker front and back in their same position. Price is for each but buy them both for $125.

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.

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.

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.

Chassis - Emerson DF item #1761
This is an Emerson DF chassis out of a portable/AC radio circa 1939. It fits several different models including DF302, DF306 and others. This version of the chassis uses a 117L6 combination rectifier/output. Everything looks original and the 6.5 inch speaker is in perfect condition. I cut the power cord because it was frayed but I wired in my variac and at 100 volts I got some hum from the chassis so I would start the restoration with the electrolytics. There was no evidence of any shorts. I will include a copy of the DF chassis schematic.
