I have been collecting antiques for many years,but it really got going about six years ago[for some unknown reason].I collect antique radios,oil lamps ,Aladdin ;lampI have been collecting antiques for many years,but it really got going about six years ago[for some unknown reason].I collect antique radios,oil lamps ,Aladdin ;lamps torchiere lamps and any thing that is from the 20s and 30s. The hardest part of my collecting is learning how radios work so I can repair them. If I had to do it I would not do it but I can go at my own pace . Being a member of the Antique Radio Forum had really helped me and I suggest anyone interested in radios have a look at that forum.. I find it the best on the web.You might want to have a look at one of my posts with photos of my basement and you will see some of my collection .ENJOY (Read more)

  10. You can find out what model it is by looking at the rear of the chassis. There should be a make and model number. The serial number does not help in identifying the radio. You can also go to ''...
  11. That is a Bakelite cabinet and if you clean it well with a good household cleaner and then polish it with brasso, it will come out very nice. Dan in Calgary
  12. You may find that you will have to remove the chassis from the cabinet and see why it is not turning. You don't want to break it. Possible a little contact cleaner or a drop of oil, might do the tri...
  13. What you need is a small knob at the bottom of the radio dial[6 o'clock position] You can see on the dial that there are settings for on/off and alarm. when you have that small knob you can turn...
  14. It is interesting that they made a clock from this picture. The photo is from a 1986 snap on calendar I have the Calendar and that photo is part of the calendar. Dan
  15. If you want the radio to keep on playing, I suggest that you get the electrolytic capacitors changed.

  19. This is an re 73. I just did some research. Dan Walker
  20. This looks like an RCA re 45 although the 45 has doors on it . There were several models that are similar such as re 32, re 45 re 78. google ''RE 45, 32 57, 78 , and look at the images and yo...
  21. I did some research on your radio.it is a Marconi model 81. Someone has cut it up so it would fit in that cabinet.
  22. Thanks for the comment. The radio receives AM, ,and short wave. there is nothing broadcast on the Police band any more. For short wave it is better to have a long outside antenna and the best rece...
  23. It is a nice looking radio. If you want it to keep on working you might have the capacitors changed as they dry out over the years. Dan
  24. You have a 1936 Zenith model 5S 126 radio . it has 5 tubes. Goolge it and you will find more information.
  25. It looks like someone had taken a Marconi model 84 or 85 radio ; then chopped it down and installed it in this cabinet, as the two kinds of wood do not match. If you google Marconi model 85 you w...
  26. It is a 1939 RCA model K80 with eight tubes. 6SA7, 6SK7, 6SQ7, 6SF5, 6F6,6F6, 5Y3 and an eye tube 6U5. When recapped, it should sound very good
  27. You can now get the exact glass replacement from radio daze. I sent them one and they made me another one so they have that particular glass in their listings. ask for John, in the graphics dept
  28. The best way to clean these radios is to use brasso on it .. If you can get the old brasso, all the better. it does wonders for the finish. I know because I have one of these radios. good luck
  29. These radios are in a cramped space and they have a tendency to over heat if left on too long. when you get it serviced make sure they change the capacitors . They are quite collectable
  30. You might want to post your photo on the ''Antique radio Forum. Those guys seem to know every radio ever made.
  31. You can try ''Radio Daze'' for the reproduction graphics.
  32. You can buy reproduction knobs at 'Renovated radios', and you can get the reproduction grill cloth from ' Richmond Designs'. That will be a nice sounding radio after the capacitors have been ch...
