    Looking for information on a Canadian built wooden table radio. It’s a Hudson’s Bay Dictator manufactured by Dominion Electrohome Industries Ltd, Grimes Radio Corporation Limited , Model A 761 D. It’s way down the list of radios that I plan to restore and I’m worried that I can’t check the tubes as I found a 4 pin in there which the tester I ordered can’t accommodate. This radio actually works ( kinda) But the volume is low with a slight hum. I unplugged it right away as I can see bare wiring on the chassis and the 110 wiring. Any info would be great. I would suspect it shares a chassis with some other model. I also have a Hudson’s Bay floor model Dictator with a (non working) Phonograph on top with a different chassis . Here’s some pics of the table model.

    the schematic for this radio is available at Pacific tv. go to online radio schematics- then Pnonola Electrohome Before 1948 and it is about 1/2 way down. hope this helps. Cheers Gordon
