Thank you so much for your kind words in your reply!
I used to have much more spare time and I was very active on a few watch forums...Anything good about my forum etiquette I have I learned from some really great people over at Rolex Forums.
Finding more about my Magnavox has been on my list of things to do for a number of years, and I am glad to have some insight on it now. Thank you. I was not necessarily looking to sell it, but it really surprised me how little could Google about it. Friends who have seen it over the years and asked what it is, (other than a glorified lamp table) and once I opened it up for them to see, have been impressed with the condition... that it has all the original parts and and still works...but more they have seemed impressed that I have all but one of the original station call stickers, accompanying paperwork, spare pieces and every original piece that I am aware of.
I have only turned it on a few times over the years, mostly after it has been moved to make sure it still worked. Other than that, I don't keep it plugged to protect it from a power surge. In this day and age where we we live in a disposable society that necessitates people asking if we want an extended warranty on everything, it truly does amaze me that I own something that was built in the 40's and has all the original parts and it actually does works! That alone is why I will keep it, even if it is only holding a nice lamp. *gasp*
I appreciate your information and I will continue to hold onto the piece in all it's original beauty...with a nice lamp on it
If there are any other pictures you would like to see of the Magnavox let me know.
