Cheap, too at $15. Wonder how bad the veneer is?

The models with that dial have a nice band indicator that turns the band name through a window when you rotate the band switch.

Good luck, Craig!

That's a giveaway for a great little console. The veneer work shouldn't be too tough if it's just on one side. I would do just a partial resto to the cabinet.

I have the boatanchor version of that model, and it is a really good receiver. If it wasn't halfway across the country....

So there is a 12 tube Patterson PR-12 Chassis in there?

It is a Patterson 105-AW, with ten tubes, output push/pull 42's feeding a dried out Jensen type D pedestal speaker. Somebody cut steel pipe to size and slid over several tubes. Somebody,....somewhere,....found out shields were needed, as the old ones were gone.....and had a good idea. It now has the shaped aluminum ones. Somebody has partially re-capped long ago, not surprising. The veneer was replaced with mahogany on the two sides and top and it was badly done. I don't even mind the poly, heck, l've used it myself. This is the first Patterson I've run acoss, should be interesting. Craig

Older post, here we go. Sides and top were re-veneered. Pedestal speaker it came with went to the scrap yard and this speaker was a $20 special at the local speaker reconing shop. A customer never picked it up. Sounds very nice. Its bezel has Western Air Patrol on it....from ebay came the same bezel with Patterson. They fit, one on top of the other. Fixing this chassis was the easier part. One question, are there many Patterson radios out there that are not boatanchors? Acquiring minds want to know. Craig

Craig, the few I have seen have been boatanchors, but I'm on the east coast and I think Paterson was a west coast company. I have the boatanchor equivalent of yours, and it seems to be a well-built and well-designed set.

I'd say it was in the mid-'30s that Patterson got involved in boat anchors. Before then, they were more oriented toward consumer radios.

Go to RadioMuseum, type Patterson in the simple search box, and then if you want photos, hit the "picture gallery" button. As you'll see, most of their radios weren't boat anchors.

But you'll probably also get the sense that, the radios that people find are the boat anchors... I suspect that before the mid-'30s Patterson's distribution was pretty limited, perhaps just in the southern CA region.
