Hi everyone,

a new "treasure" has arrived....35 Euros and the big question is:

restoring or keeping it for parts ? I have done a foto shoot as a first impression, so bear with me there will

be a number of pics uploaded !

this was obviously the top-side - woodwork is intact, just needs a bit of oil to freshen up.

what is not so nice are the loose buttons......

here they are bottoms up - I wonder what is in their grooves ? is this original left-overs from their attachment fitting ??

moving to the far top right - all seems fine, no major scratches and complete with the pre-set cover

having a look under the pre-set cover and a play with the pre-set trimmers...the first discovered problem: only two are adjustable, the rest wont move

with their finger wheel turing but not the attached axle :-((

lifting up that pre-set box shows what years of garage storing can do...shame the cleaning lady is on vacation !!

moving on inside - have a look at the sliding rod for the dial arm !! cleaning, lube-job.....the dial cord simply slips through without

moving the dial arm assembly on its rod !

not to mention those replaced power transistors, which are obviously not the original ones ?!?!?!
