    I picked up a Mohawk radio at a local auction late last fall, a summer project now. The set spent some time in Camrose Alberta in its past, tubes have repair shop labels on them. Solid cabinet; in need of refinishing (will be asking for tips at a later date 🙂 Wires to speaker have been cut, tube missing, haven’t got the chassis out yet but pleased with the purchase $40.00

    Started cleaning up the cabinet, the center section of the cabinet came out in two pieces which will make cleaning a lot easier.

    Someone had applied a dark tone to the cabinet in the past and covered up some damaged areas but almost hid the inlaid pattern around the center section of the cabinet. I cleaned it up some to reveal the pattern , as you can see there is some damage to the veneer but I should be able to fix it.

    Hi Keith. Any luck with restoration?
    Show us some inside pictures of your radio. Must be interesting. 🙂

    Keith ,,,I have one of those radios,but the cabinet is a little different..It looks like yours is fancier around the dial.. Mine is an S-7 [ I believe]
    I picked mine up at an antique show for $80.00 and I had to redo the whole cabinet.. I also recapped the radio and now it plays very well. I did not find it hard to work on at all. There was lots of room inside
    I am posting a couple of photos of mine..
