I bought this radio today at a flea market. It is about 3 ft. tall, and the information on it says it is a Stewart-Warner 11-9B model with a magic keyboard. I wondered if any of you knew how old it is and anything about it? Thanks

I believe it's a 1940, give or take a year. 9 tubes, schematic is on line.

Thanks. I have been looking around today, and it resembles some of them from the late 1930s. I found a listing of them that indicates that it may have been 1940, so your reply makes me believe this may be true.

I'm not sure if it will work, but it is really cool to look at.

Hi there,

I don't know how to post a picture on this website. I wish I did. Do you have to host it somewhere else?

I had a couple of questions. What do you think the chances are that this radio could be repaired? It seems to have all of the tubes, but the power cord is severed. Are they difficult to repair?

I have a 3 ft. Stewart Warner radio circa 1940. I'm not sure if it works, but I wondered what the value likely is of it not working and what it might be if repaired.

Also wondered how much it could cost to repair?

There is a gallery on here but some find it cumbersome. I use Photobucket as a host and then copy and paste to your post by "copy image location."

Might help to if we knew where you are located as there might be someone close by here on the forums that may or may not want to take on this project.

I had 2 of these . Typical console cabinet with a slide rule dial .
One was fixed for a customer and the other i put on the street with a free sign on it :) Not worth much these days .

I live in the Jackson, MS area.

Here is a link to a picture of the radio. I wasn't able to figure out how to upload to the gallery.

Yeah, I couldn't find any pictures of another one exactly like it. I found some with similar styles, but not identical.

Do you think that it would be hard to repair or restore a radio like this?

One of the things that is missing is plastic station indicator that moves when you tune the dial. I wonder if there's anywhere I could find one to replace the one that is missing.

I wonder if it would be difficult to replace the cord. Right now, it's severed.

.

Here's the photo linked - - - -

Thats a nice looking set and a bit different in styling - - I wouldn't mind having a copy of it myself,
(and that's a lot newer than I'm usually drawn to).

I was kind of wondering about possibly replacing the fabric in front that seems to be a little damaged, or do you think it just gives it character. I wonder if there is a place that you can buy antique fabrics to use in repair?

Any one know ballpark how much it would cost to fix it?

If you want to look for a replacement cloth try here, http://www.grillecloth.com/, may have something close.

Repair cost can't be known for sure, too many variables, but if you would like to attempt it we can help you get there. :)

I would fix it.

Where should I start with the repair. The plug in is severed. Will I electrocute myself or damage it if I try to wire a new plug in cord onto it?

Get some pictures of the set, so we can guide you in the repair.
