Downsizing Collection

After many years of collecting radios I have finally run out of room, and that dreaded word "downsizing" has reared its ugly head. This first round is limited to radios that I can live without, so please do not be offended if I tell you it's not for sale (all that means is it's not for sale at the present time). So if you see something you like please let me know. I will tell you if I will consider selling it and then you can decide what you want to pay for it. I will accept offers only. Please do not ask me what I want for it, it is up to you to make an offer. Of course I will send you a complete description with pictures so you know what you are buying. Shipping will be added to the total unless your offer is to good to be true, and in that case shipping is negotiable. Just click on the rectangular button called Collection and make up your wish list. Please remember that my usual For Sale list with descriptions, pictures, and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.

Philo 37-610 Big Bullet item #1747
This is one of my favorite art deco radios. It is a 1937 Philco Model 37-610 aka "Big Bullet". The wood cabinet is in good condition for being 80 years old, but there are a few repairs needed. There is a small missing piece of veneer on the front as seen in the first picture. The lacquer finish on top is worn and will need some refinishing. The veneer along the front top edge needs gluing down, and there is a small crack in the veneer just before it starts the rounded portion of the cabinet (it can also be glued down and when sanded smooth should not be a problem). As you can see in the first picture the grill cloth is torn and the original Philco field coil speaker had some tears in this area. I was able to use rubber cement from the inside of the speaker and make the repairs and it is now fine. On the bottom of the cabinet is a factory cut out so you can see the underneath of the chassis. I noticed one electrolytic was disconnected so I removed the chassis and found all 3 were disconnected. I decided to replace them and to my amazement the radio played fine and sounded great. If this was my radio I would still replace the rest of the old capacitors, but this takes the big gamble out of buying an old tube radio and not knowing if it works. While I had the chassis out I noticed the plastic dial had 2 cracks and I was able to epoxy them tight. I think it looks fine but if this bothers you repro dials for this radio are available. Finally, the original knobs and escutcheon are good. I had one of these radios in my collection and sold it for $350. I had wanted to get another but do not have the time for any more projects so instead I am offering it for sale for $100 (I recently looked on ebay and cabinets alone for this radio go for $100). Please expect Fedex shipping to be around $35 East and $45 West of the Mississippi as this is a large radio and needs a big box with lots of packing. Want just the chassis - $75

Philco 42-PT94 item #1737
Philco Model 42-PT94 Transitone from 1942. Wood case is solid with no veneer problems but needs refinishing. Unfortunately the escutcheon, which is made of Tenite, has a notoriously bad reputation. This type of plastic shrinks and warps over time. In my opinion the one on this radio is still acceptable looking. Better news on the chassis - it was rebuilt and is playing just fine with very nice sound and plenty of sensitivity. Everything else looks original to the radio including the knobs, handle, back, and full labels on bottom. Restore the cabinet and you will have a very nice radio.

Emerson FP421 item #1736
Nicely styled machine age Emerson Model FP421 from about 1941. Bakelite case is free of damage and has a nice soft shine. Chassis was recapped and realigned and is playing fine. Original Emerson knobs (left to right bass treble tone control, volume, on/off, tuning). Plastic dial face a little yellowed but acceptable (replacements readily available but I Iike to keep parts original if possible). Dial is clean.

DeWald B612 Catalin item #1731
At first glance this appears to be a DeWald step top catalin radio Model A502. However, it is actually a Model B612 radio chassis in an A502 cabinet and this is exactly how it originally came from the factory. The B612 chassis is an FM to AM converter so you can play the FM band on you AM radio. But it has a really interesting twist. It is actually an AM oscillator so you can transmit the FM signal to any nearby AM radio. First one of these I have ever seen or even heard of. I got it while on vacation in the Hudson Valley this Fall. The cabinet had several cracks and a tiny chip from the top rear. The chassis had some rust. It was nearly impossible to remove from the cabinet so those 3 screws on the bottom had to be cut off. Finally got the two separated (I held my breath taking them apart so as not to damage the fragile FM glass dial which is in very good condition). I clamped the cabinet and used super glue followed by epoxy to repair the cracks. It came out very well. I have done some preliminary sanding and you cannot feel the cracks, but they are still visible to varying degrees. It will still display nicely as with any catalin radio (the Butterscotch has the most swirling and definition I have seen in a catalin radio cabinet). As for the chassis, lots of naval jelly and the rust is all dissolved. The tuning mechanism and dial cord and on off switch work fine. I recapped the chassis, changed a few parts in the AM oscillator, and it is now working. I was able to pick up several FM stations on a nearby AM radio tuned to 700 kc (adjustable by changing the setting of the trimmer). I put a current price for the radio in its present condition as pictured. There are people who can airbrush over the cracks and make them invisible, but that is for the new owner to decide if they want that done.
