I had no concerns about taking on the wood work myself. All of the major parts were there. As for the inside, I wasn’t too sure. The old capacitors were shot and much of the cloth-insulated wiring needed to be replaced. After more research, it appears that the radio didn’t originally run on regular house current. It was battery only and the AC power feature was added later. I decided it best to farm out the electrical work so I called Retro Audio Lab in Midland. I can’t say enough about them. They did amazing work on the radio and have a passion for restoring old gear. They ran a build log here listed under “6B164.” It was playing Craig Anderson’s radio show when I came in to pick it up. The old grill cloth was a memory at this point. I was able to find a small patch of the original cloth inside the frame. I taped it to my computer monitor and surfed the catalog of some antique grille cloth manufacturers. The rest was some basic stripping, cleaning, sanding and lacquer. Car pin-striping did the trick in replacing the gold inlay. I tossed a long-wire antenna out the back door and fired her up. It works like it did in 1937.
