Greetings! I'm working on a project and I was hoping I could get some help from someone who owns a Zenith 5R216.

I'm looking for some exact measurements on that radio. More or less we're looking to make a digital model of 5R216 and there is only so much we can figure out via photos online.

What we'd really love to have are the exact measurements of each side's piece of wood, thickness of side panels and the "steps" on the side panels, some help with the area around the controls and face, and those cute feet.

What we'd eventually like to do is to see if we can make a pretty faithful replica with our CNC machine. Sharing those files online should help people doing restoration work. Once we get certain aspects worked out on the 5R216 we can try doing some files on similar radios.

Anyone interested in helping out? A couple minutes with a measuring tape or calipers and we'd be set.
