Hi All,
It's been a long time since I've been on here.

After a long spell of not picking up any new radio/record players I recently found a deal from a seller near my house that I couldn't pass up. This is a Westinghouse WR-13 and I am really excited about restoring it. However, I can't seem to find ANY information about it online - not even pictures of it. There is information about the WR-7 but not the WR-13. Collectors Guide to Antique Radios says it was comes from circa 1931.

I'm really interested in seeing pictures of other restored WR-13 units, and scans of the operating manual. It seems to me that there may be missing parts around the tone arm, but not certain. Appreciate any clues people can share!

Thanks
Bill

It was actually made by RCA, I wonder if you can cross-reference it to an RCA-branded model?

Good point. I did find a few RCA models that were similar. The tone arm design is a giveaway. However, there is an exact match. Still in disbelief about not being able to find any pictures on the internet- restored or unrestored. The internet is supposed to have everything, right? ;)

Cross reference chart is here: https://worldradiohistory.com/hd2/IDX-S ... e-0012.pdf

I'm not sure who actually built this set, but I know that many early RCA radios were built by GE and Westinghouse.

Presto! That reference was a great help. the WR-13 is equivalent to the RE-16! Thank you!
