I am trying to restore the cabinet which is missing one knob and the mesh on the front. I have included a picture. I am new to this as I have had this in my attic for 30 years since getting it from my grandparents when they died. Any help or tips would be much appreciate. Any ideas on where I could get a knob and the mesh.

You might post a separate ad for just the knob alone. Or it might be in a bag stashed on the chassis. Speaker cloth is available from upholstery supply stores or site vendors. Re-finishing is the same as any other re-finishing, lacquer is what was used one these old radios. It was quick, cheap, and is easily polished. I know you're not asking this, but l would recommend repairing the radio first. Craig
