"Thanks for the information. I did get the power supply/amp, speaker, crossover, and phono preamp as well. There were no tweeters however. All are in excellent condition. It took very little to get the set playing with just a few issues such as…"

"Nice looking example. If all the chrome is that nice, you have a great example. And correct knob set. I do not have what you need. Do you have the power supply (has 4 6L6's) and speaker(s)? Go to top of this site page and open SCOTT INFO…"

"I had to deal with this problem many years ago. The right angle gears inside the cast metal box were totally disengaged when I acquired it. It was trial and error to get the gears properly meshed again so the band switch pointer knob pointed to the…"

"Steve: Welcome.  The switch cam above the chassis and the coil wheel share a common shaft.  The only way they can be out of correspondence is if one or the other is installed 180-degrees from correct or if the fiber wafer is upside…"
