Since we don’t get too many Zenith radios here in Alberta, I picked this one up.
I will need the get some station tabs , a belt and knobs from Renovated radios.
The recap will be fairly easy [I hope] , and the cabinet won’t get done until late spring.
It sure does have a small transformer ,compared to many Rogers sets
I like it.

I wonder if the tendency for US radios to have small transformers is a large part of why they are afraid to test run them. The huge 25/60 transformers in Canadian sets are almost bullet proof. I wonder if you have some “faux” veneer on the stiles in front of the speaker?
John,according to the guys on ARF there cabinet is all wood.
They all tell me that zenith was quite cheap with the transformers and with the 6X5 rectifier tube,
the transformer will burn out, so I added a 1 amp fuse in the power line.
I just ordered all the buttons knobs and tabs $144.00 Canadian.
I still have to order a belt.
I put new electrolytic caps in today and it works very well. I will change the rest of the caps,
and wait for the belt,

There’s some lovely burls on the front columns, but i wondered about the stiles. It’s good that it’s not faux !! The fuse is probably a good idea.
