That’s a great all in one solution! I will go with that. Thanks for the link. It speaks volumes That 2 of the radios pictured are Hallicrafters and 1 is a S38!!
I had to jump on the radio this morning as I had to know if there was any collateral damage. Found a NOS pot in my stash and cut the shaft to fit.
Replaced the pot and all the adjacent wiring that got crispy. Radio plays great ! What a relief. I will mount a separate toggle for the on/off. Time to play (safely) outside. A rare nice sunny and warm day in Montreal and too nice to spend in the radio cave.
