Hi everyone! I’m looking for help either fixing this old awesome beast for the family or to connect with someone who can repair it! It looks to be an amazing old radio with a ton of options built in the 50’s? When I grabbed it for 50 bucks at the habitat for humanity store about 6 years ago it worked, but only very quietly ha ha. The last time I plugged it in I swear I smelled the same horrible white electronic death smoke that I know so well from classic motorcycle restoration, so I quickly unplugged it and it’s been sitting ever since.
Any help or advice would be GREATLY appreciated! I’d like to restore this thing and have it be a cool addition to our main room, and I’ve gotten permission from the lady!
Oh also it seems to have all the plans and wiring diagrams, which I’m sure someone is interested in. The thing has a bunch of strange tubes, including a green electric eye?
