1. Picked this "Lil' Cube" Motorola 55A up in the Trinity Alps back in June after a gig, looks to be all original Westinghouse labeled Japan made tubes and (1) Realistic lifetime gold pin 12BA6? or similar tube type I seem to recall, they all test good on my Sylvania 219 tester.
No cracks in plastic that I could see, powers up and gets warm on variac, though no sound or signal apparent at about 70 volts..
I would replace the obvious filter cap culprits if I were to keep this, and of course clean circuit board carefully...Nice deco meets space age design... $30

2. Sentinel 1U264 BC Table Radio - pretty nice for age, non- original back, needs electrical restore- $50

3. Firestone 4-A-3- spot painted to match aging, needs electrical restoration- $40

4. Rare Airline 1619- Two Tone Turquoise /White, checked and replaced tubes, replaced filter capacitors, powers up and working...needs cardboard back and antenna holders corrected with proper fitting, includes A.C. cord- $35

5. Admiral 4203- Needs new dial string, needle and filter caps, tubes tested good including one Admiral label 35L6,
A.C. cord cut, spent some time cleaning and restoring wood cabinet for better presentation- $75 OBO

6. Coronado 43-8685 - Needs new dial string, spring and string holder missing, all else there and tubes tested good- $30

7. Mantola R654PM (Admiral)- earlier model may be pre-war manufacture with filter choke..replaced filter caps and .1 cap, other coupling caps should be replaced as leaky to cut down noise tuning stations in...sounds loud and good at full power...Speaker repaired and working as one side of surround melted to case perhaps from excessive heat in storage in past?, some tubes replaced with good tubes, no cracks that I could see in bakelite, missing back- $60 OBO

8. Bulova 400 clock radio for parts- cord cut, cracks and scratches, powered up some time ago and loud hum, clock mechanism (arms) broken in storage-
$5

9. G.E. 515F Clock radio- Untested, needs rebuild, all seems to be there and manually functional, - $45

10. Sylvania Electric 3303 "Compass" radio- leather back torn, untested, all seems to be there for operation once rebuilt- $30

All prices plus least cost shipping, probably UPS ground east of the Rockies....

For the Admiral 4203, Please give me a quote for shipping, zip code below my avatar.

Restringing a slide rule dial is akin to the Chinese Water Torture...We'll have to discuss price. :wink:

Interested in the Admiral and Sentinel if they are available. May be able to pick up.
Let me know.
Thanks!
