This is a 10 transistor BC/SW
Found in excellent condition for only $10.
Was there a sleeve/tube that held the batteries in place?
Tried putting them in, but they just sprang out.
Needs a re-cap, but does work.

Looking for either service manual or alignment procedures.
Thanks in advance
Stan

Yes, it originally had a battery tube.

Make your own cut from a PET plastic soda bottle and duct tape.
You can if you wish, roll it up tighter (cable ties) and heat in a pan of water, then place in cold water to arrest the process...

Shoot me an email address via PM (private message) and I will send you the 1962 service manual.

oh... it might be best to wait until the lady of the house is out before you start cookin' in the kitchen... :)


Random links from my scrap-book!
as I have a couple of these... waiting in line. Lol

Soda bottles on this side of pond are not shaped like that. I use the cardboard tubes found at the end of a roll of paper towels. Slice and overlap to fit then secure with tape or glue.

Greg did you get my email?
Mine is quite a bit different on the inside even though it says Tras-World 623.
I took a picture, but it's been such a long time I posted a picture I forgot how to. It's so convoluted posting pix here.
So here is a link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DKevkEefK7EcCE4K87M8zUPxCfwcGzUV/view?usp=sharing


Yup those were the soda bottles I was thinking of.

Stan, you've got mail.

After cutting a rough square of plastic from the bottle with a pair of scissors, trim edges with a steel straight-edge/square + utility knife. Round sharp corners and edges with 220 or 400grit silicon carbide sand-paper.
Never buy dollar store sand-paper... :shock:
