RCA 85T1 - 1937
radio as I received it.
Not in too bad of shape.
Check out the dust
on the dial pointer!
Before and after pics.
A view of the cap's|
I had to replace.
And here it is, all|
re-capped and ready
to go! I left the old
can's disconnected but
intact and added new
elecrtolytic (blue) ones
|And the finished product!|
Well I recapped it, replaced the cord and gave it a good cleaning.
I decided that the finish on this radio was in good enough shape that I
didn't need to refinish it. I didn't want to destroy the patina. This is
a five tube radio. It uses a 42, 80, 6A7, 6D6 and 75 and I didn't have
to replace any tubes as they all tested good! Which is a very good thing
since a full tube replacement would have cost me about 60 bucks. Ouch!
So now it's joined my other radios, playing the sweet sound of music.
Just as this radio was originally made to do.
