Just picked up a Stromberg Carlson Radio Phono Console possibly early to mid 40s.The tag on the rear of the Chassis is a paper sticker and is rubber stamped Model 33264. This is a beast, one will need an Overhead Crane and Gantry to move it around. It has 14 tubes and six IF Cans, two of which are apparently for FM. Speaker was missing and someone pulled the two 6F6 Output Tubes. I gained a good 6U5 Eye tube and the Power Transformer is good. Outut transformer and a second choke is good. So already it has paid for itself, and to spare. However I cannot find the Schematic for it. To be honest I may find myself in very deep water on the technical side of this one. No Pictures yet, as the cabinet is still in the pan of my truck, and I want to clean up the chassis first. I wont start on the actual restoration without the schematic, and if I do not find one I will steal the Power Transformer from it.
Any help on finding the schematic would be appreciated.
PS; And yes there was such a model Number, although that too was hard to find on the Net.

Well! I have hit Pay-Dirt on this one. I not only found a great Schematic, but I also found a detailed, Point to Point wiring diagram, and a couple og great chassis pictures. The model is a 925PFB.
So I guess it’s off to the races.

Sorry something is gone haywire with my Picture Program, and no matter what I try to send, the same pic is sent each time.

Some of you may be aware of this, but back then, and this Set was Manufactured back in 1942, this set was FM capable. And back then in the early days of Television, one could purchase a TV set that was only Video capable. Youhad to tune in the sound for your TV Programs on the FM Band. These TV sets sold much cheaper than what we would consider a standard TV Set. I don’t know if this was only an option thru Stromberg, or not??? But some of those Stromberg Console Combos had TVs in them. And would that be Fries or Onion Rings??
