Hello, Colin, and welcome. What are the valve line-ups in the set, may help narrow it down some. Also, any information on the chassis, or cabinet will help. Pictures? David

Rolax has very little on it except for MFD on a sticker on the chassis and 4598 stamped into the back of the cabinet..circa 1938...five valves.

Yale is made by Westonhouse (also called a National)..possible model number is BS... circa 1941..7 valves

Does anyone have any details or schematics for these two.

Picture are posted in the Gallery under New Zealand Radios.

Cheers
Colin

Hi Colin, I have a Rolax 1936 I believe, very similar to yours except its the tombstone version. I will try post pics of it in the pic gallery. I also have very little info on mine. Mine is a 6 valve probably the same valves as yours plus one. Tube line 80,42, 6B7, 6K7 x2, 1 unknown & a 6U5 magic eye.
