Very basic chassis, but looks like it has a power converter instead of batteries. Never heard of an Arcadia before. Might be fun to play with, but I don't have many low voltage tubes in my spares. Waiting to hear back, but for $45 bucks, it's probably worth it for the converter.

That's a Dominion Electrohome made under the Arcadia label for the MacLeod's chain stores (Western Canada) much like they did for Eatons (Viking) and for Simpsons (Serenader).

Thanks Ken for the intel. Never heard of Macleod's before. Just came back from buying it. Looks to be complete and the wood is in reasonable shape with some shrinking/separation at the bottom. First purchase in my newly adopted city of Regina! Nothing special, but something to play with when the snow flies. I had 2 Dictators from Hudson's Bay, but sold them to the same collector before we moved.

Interesting. After the MacLeod's chain was bought out by Gamble-Skogmo (from the US), MacLeod's changed the name of the store brand radios and electric appliances to Coronado, to match that of the new parent company.

It is not a common model and looks to be in good shape, nice dial. And the power supply is a bonus.
There are more battery-powered radios out on the prairie, so this opens up a whole other 'field', yuck yuck.
For the schematic, go to Pacific TV and search by Electrohome + the model number. The same chassis would be used with a variety of brand names and cabinets.

The chassis looks very basic, but as you say, the power supply is a bonus. Had a quick look and it seems to be all there. The wood is in great shape and I will leave it mostly untouched, but the bottom board has come apart into 3 pieces. I will clamp and glue it and give it a polish.

My first battery powered radio. It may open up a whole new "field" of collecting for me as John pointed out! :lol:
