I was interested in getting my first variac so I got to meet a very nice older gentleman who sold me through offerup the General Radio Type 200-C. He wanted $25 which I gladly paid. When I arrived he already had the Variac plugged in and hooked up to his voltmeter :shock: - it was accurate and rock steady after all these years.

He asked me where I was going to put it - I replied at my work bench since I intend to use it! He said most people he has interacted with recently buy these for decoration.

We began talking about overcoming illness and my interest in restoring radios as a stroke survivor. As we shook hands as I prepared leave. He told me to sit tight while he went to his garage and came back with the Emerson pictured below-he wanted me to have it. Touched, I offered to pay he politely but adamantly declined. I left $25 dollars poorer but also left with two great momentos and much richer in spirit! Can anyone help me ID the Emerson?
Thanks,
Shawn

If none of our knob sellers here on ARF have the knobs for your Emerson, Renovated Radios has reproduction black knobs.

It is an AA6, with the good octal tube lineup. also a plus.

A lot of knobs for an AA6: looks like they broke out the on/off separate from the volume, added a simple tone switch, and then of course, the tuning knob.
