The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
To keep things interesting here...
I was planning to list a "project" on ebay, and then I decided that I would offer this first to the folks here...if there is any interest.
I have about 75% of a Shield Grid 9 gathered up. I will not get to this project myself, so I think it should go to someone that will be able to get it together. I have the following parts:
1. front panel, escutcheons, knobs
2. all required variable condensers and brackets
3. two National drum dials
4. chassis brackets
5. two rheostats and a fixed resistor
6. filament switch
7. fixed condenser and grid leak
8. Scott volt meter
9. female cable plug
10. original hookup wire
11. hardware (screws, nuts, bolts)
12. Type 600 copper IF unit, hollow..
13. Type 620 copper can, hollow
14. complete instructions
What is needed: (assemble the Type 600 unit), find/make plug in coils, base panel w/tube sockets, a type 640 output transformer.
If you are interested in this "project", email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For anyone considering this, I have been working on cleaning up and "digitally remastering" the original docs Scott provided for this set. In the attached PDF I have:
The typewritten instructions have been reformatted and have minor edits, including new illustrations -- some taken from original marketing literature, others newly created or suitably embellshed from original sources. The attached PDF is missing at least 3 items I am aware of:
Thanks to Kent for providing a PDF packet of the original instructions I was able to OCR.
