This 1927 Arborphone 27 was picked up at a local sale some time ago. It had seen very damp storage which damaged the cabinet substantially and overall was pretty rough. Fortunately it has a solid wood cabinet rather than veneer so veneer delamination was not a problem. One set of knobs also required repair. The radio was finished with toned lacquer to the same shade as original.
Both audio transformers were open so rewinding was necessary. This chassis has an unusual shape.
I was able to locate a pdf of a 27 page manual for this radio on the web complete this item.
Great work Ed. That’s a beautiful radio.
I’ll second that – I’ve seen a couple of those before – but never one that looked that good !
