    Stereogram

    I bought it as a project, actually got it working. The radio is AM only and it plays records rather nicely. The wiring is pretty shady.
    Would be a cool thing to fix the wiring and put some new speakers into.
    Last time I turned it on was 8 months ago and it worked. Havenít tried since.
    Pick up Longburn

    You can have all the old records for free as well. There is some very funny old stuff in there!

    I’m giving it away

    I want to keep it, and play around with it.. but the wife says it can’t come in the house and we are moving to a place that doesn’t have a shed.
    It was pretty fun getting the tuner to work. The pulley has slipped off the cog and just wouldn’t stay on.

    I have one in my garage I'm restoring. The front speaker panel doubles as a swing open door to a drinks cabinet. Used paint stripper to get the old varnish off the veneered plywood of the lid and with some linseed it is stunning. Still gotta get rid of some humming - these things are getting old and the electrolytic capacitors are "dry" and need replacement, just gotta start with the big ones of the power supply and start replacing smaller and smaller ones until problem solved. Radio valves themselves don't die that easily.

    I think my wife might become willing to negotiate its return to our house if I get rid of the hum.
