 I just got into this fascinating hobby.  Just redid a couple of radios I grew up with - a Majestic 1941, and Philco Model14 - 1933, chassis only. Now working on a Philco 96, 1930.  I decided I…Continue

Purchased this radio from the Philco guru, Ron, and have been playing with it a bit.  I studied the parts list and discovered that all of the coupling caps are Mica, and the bypass caps are bathtub style soaked in oil.  I disconnected a couple of both and tested them and they seemed fine, so I decided to power it up slowly, monitoring the B+ line, paying special attention to ripple as the B+ came up.  Everything seemed fine all the way to full voltage, and the radio played!  ripple voltage was…See More

Robert;

You are doing a great job on your 16! I too am amazed at the reduction in size of modern electrolytics. Lately I have been working on some Fisher tuners from the early 1960s. I am able to find high voltage rated individual electrolytics that easily fit inside the typical size multi-section electrolytics used in those products. Mike Hadley has an excellent thread on making the dogbone resistors and also making replacement bezels. Of course if you can find someone who has already reproduced the one you need, go for it. It is encouraging to others to see how well many of these radios are being restored!

Keep us updated.

Joe

Robert,

Thank you for the warm welcome.  My apologies for the delay in my reply but i'm not only new here but relatively new to discussion groups, forums etc. You are absolutely correct when you said that a lot can be learned here.  Been here a short time and I've already learned a lot.
