    I bought this one from Kijiji and it was all apart at the time.
    I recapped it and had to change three resistors before it would work.
    The cabinet was quite dull, but after a good cleaning and renaissance wax, it turned out pretty good.

    Great Job Dan! Very interesting dial.
    I use Novus, Meguiar’s PlastX or sometimes I find just plain brown or black shoe polish.
    I find not every product works best on every piece of Bakelite, and you have to experiment a bit.
    I will be Googling renaissance wax.

    Hi Ben; the best thing I like about the renaissance wax is that it does not leave finger prints.
    I suppose when you google it they will tell you that the British museums hired some scientists to formulate a wax for their museum things.
    As I understand it: they use the wax on all of the stuff.
    I do really like the wax, and you don’t need much of it
