Vintage Philco Tube Radio For Sale
I acquired this radio about a decade ago with the intent of restoring it but never found the time or money. It functions but not well. The problem it has is the tubes and some of the capacitors need replacing. The power supply filter capacitor for sure is bad, lots of hum. The tubes are weak and it can receive strong stations but not weak. Basically it needs to be re-tubed, re-cap'd, and aligned, and the exterior needs work, grill cloth needs replacing, wood needs refinishing. Wasn't sure how to go about this myself because I didn't want to lose the original Philco lettering.
