Seller: 1802sandypup (425) 96.6%, Location: Ames, Iowa, Ships to: US, CA, BS, UY, Item: 254352815991 This is a restored and working very well Radiola model 61-3 vacuum tube table top AM radio made by RCA and first introduced in 1946. This radio has six tubes that allows it to receive stations especially well with good clear warm tube sound and volume using just the loop antenna inside the case with no need for an external antenna. A 2 position tone control lets you select between treble or bass for voice or music. It has been tested and should continue to play loud and clear for many, many more years. The wooden case has a red and white dial that lights up when the radio is on. The case has no cracks, chips or odors. The case has been completely refinished and it looks remarkable for a 73 year old. The knobs match and are original. A new cardboard back has been fashioned to keep fingers out and the original label on the bottom shows the location of the tubes. This radio would look nice and retro on a table or shelf and could be used as a daily AM radio. The inside chassis has been thoroughly cleaned; the volume control de-oxidized for smooth volume changes and all moving controls lubricated. I have replaced all old electrolytic and film capacitors in the chassis with new modern capacitors and have checked all resistors. Brittle or bare wiring has been replaced or re-insulated. The photos underneath the chassis show the quality and neatness of my electrical work. All 6 easily found tubes have been tested and questionable tubes have been replaced. The power cord has been replaced with an 18 gauge cord with molded, polarized plug. The speaker is in great condition. The radio has been aligned and successfully bench tested for at least 12 hours over several days. The radio size is approximately 8¾” high by 14¼” wide by 8” deep and weighs just over 10 pounds. Shipping weight should be about 13 pounds. I take pride in my shipping and the radio will be insured and carefully packaged to arrive safely. Note: If you are unsuccessful in winning this radio please check back to see what other radios I have for sale. I list one restored old radio about every week.
