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.



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.

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.

$45.00      condition: good


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. ON HOLD

Westinghouse Model H126 Little Jewel refrigerator radio. Available for parts as follows: handle with green bakelite insert $25; 2 side pieces unbroken but someone painted them so need to be stripped and repainted to match your cabinet $15 each or both for $25; brass escutcheon $20.

Airline 04BR514 item #1713
Airline Model 04BR514 radio. Cabinet was repainted and has a small piece missing from rear bottom (can't see from the front). Cord needs replacing but I plugged in anyway and to my surprise the radio worked pretty good (minor hum in background so new electrolytics are a good bet). Missing pushbuttons (reproductions made but originals are available if you search), and stations numbers gone from original plastic dial face (someone probably sprayed an ammonia based cleaner so bye bye numbers - reproduction dials made). Despite what's wrong these are collectible radios and this one still displays nicely. The price is a fraction of a good original.
