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. 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. Please do not ask me what I want for it, it is up to you to make an offer. 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 and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.

Philco 40-502 Radio/78 RPM Record Player item #1733
Philco Model 40-502 radio record player. Cabinet is in excellent condition and has its original finish with just two small pieces of veneer missing but touched-up so hardly noticeable. Radio chassis was rebuilt and works fine. Record player was also completely rebuilt with a replacement motor, tone arm, and cartridge. Plays those 78 records perfectly, and the permanent needle and the lighter metal tone arm won't hurt those records like the replaceable steel needles. Multi position switch on top of the record player is to select radio, phono, and bass, and toggle switch turns turntable on. I don't think you will find this model in better condition especially at this price. ON HOLD

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. Price includes shipping US lower 48 only.

$250.00      condition: fair

Vintage Stereophones item #1730
Really nice vintage stereo headphones from the 1960's made by Sharpe (Model 7). I love the color. They are in working condition and appear to be new old stock in original boxes. I have two. Buy one for yourself and give the other as a present to the vintage HiFi lover. Price is for each but if you want both its $45.

$25.00      condition: excellent

Phono-Art Record Player item #1727
Decent Phono-Art suitcase record player. Cloth covered case in good condition with some minor scuffing of the cloth in spots. Tube amplifier was rebuilt, turntable motor and drive wheel lubricated, and a new tone with high output crystal cartridge installed (has flip over needles for 78, and LP/45). Works and sounds fine. Two knobs on right control on/off/volume and tone and knob on left is the speed control (turntable has 3 speeds: 33 1/3, 45 with built in adapter, and 78). Great for playing your old 78's and 45's. These suitcase record players are becoming popular again due to the renewed interest in vinyl but finding them in working condition without needing some repairs is near impossible.

General Electric Radio/78 RPM Record Player item #1726
One of the cleaner and nicer radio record players I have for sale. This is a General Electric but not sure of the model number. Similar to a model 302 but knobs are horizontal rather than vertical. Cabinet has its original finish and in very good condition with some minor wear marks on top associated with age. Put a little wax on and it will be very nice (and protected). Electronics have been rebuilt and radio plays fine. Record player motor was cleaned and lubricated, tone arm cartridge was changed from one that uses steel needles to one with a permanent needle and works fine. You will be able to play your old 78's or start a collection as this cartridge and needle will not destroy your 78's like a steel needle. Everything else on the radio appears original. Knobs and dial are in great shape. Controls along bottom from L to R are tone, on/off/volume, tuning, and radio/phono switch. Expect shipping to be $25-30 as box needs to be big to accommodate radio + packing materials for safe travel.

Zenith 6S511 item #1718
Zenith Model 6S511 from 1940. Heavy bakelite case in perfect condition. I did not do anything to the case and it looks fine, but with some polishing it will look beautiful. Radio is working great too with no hum. Original pushbuttons and knobs. The original tortoise handle really makes the radio. I have this model in wood but tempted to keep the bakelite version unless you buy it before I change my mind. I am keeping the price lower then its worth as it will probably run about $30 to ship ($40 West).

$95.00      condition: excellent

Belmont 638 Early Rabbit item #1715
This one is an art deco beauty. Its a Belmont Model 638 which is the prewar version of the 6D111, also known as the "rabbit", The bakelite case displays beautifully. There was a tiny hairline crack along the bottom side that is filled in and hard to see unless you know its there. The radio was serviced and works perfectly. The original pushbuttons often missing are all there but two don't function well (if you push them in they don't pop out so better not to fool with them - 2nd and 3rd from the left). No big deal however because no one uses the pushbuttoms for station tuning. The original Belmont label is partially there on the front. The radio did not come with a back so I ordered a repro from Retrotronics and it fits and looks great (the antenna is attached inside to the back). I wish this rabbit would multiply so I would have more to sell but alas this is the only one. A similar model radio sold in 2014 at the radio attic for $375: Radiotiques price is $100.
