I am contemplating the purchase of the radio pictured below. It is a Canadian General Electric Model A-108 and is the same as the RCA C11-1 console of that year. The shutter dial mechanism looks complicated, but neat. Anything to look out for on this 10 tube monster? It’s a working condition, unrestored original chassis and cabinet. I find out later today if it’s still available.

I have the red book if you need the schematics.
It sound like it would be a good one to own.

Thanks Dan, got outbid, all for naught 🙁
What did it sell for?
I’m not sure,but more than $75. I was second in line to boot.
Too bad it was a nice radio. So what is next on your list?
Not much. Have several tubes and more caps on the way, still have the second Philco that had the severed tuning arm to figure out. The Hudson bay Dictator is also waiting for a tube. Just bought a pair of ols ESM 3 speakers for 10 bucks that will need the woofers refoamed. The refoaming kits are cheap, so for $50. I should have a good set of extra speakers.
