    When I got this radio it was quite a mess and the grill cloth was torn.
    I recapped the radio and then U worked on the cabinet. The radio is a 1933 DeForest Crosley
    model 851 and it is called the Mayfair/ York.
    It is the only radio I have that has two speakers.
    A very different feature us that when you change the tone it causes a plastic piece to move behind the main dial, causing the dial to get darker ,as you get more bass
    The cabinet is made by McLagan which was a manufacturer that made fine quality gramophone cabinets up until about 1927.
    They then made cabinets for radio manufacturers.
    The cabinet came out very nice. I just thought I would share it
    Here are some photos.

    Very nice Dan! I just picked up this same set at a garage sale, would you happen to have a clear schematic for this set? If so shoot me an email please.
