Spent yesterday sorting out my Beolit 600.

It was in a very good shape cosmetically, with no damage at all and battery cover included. Sadly, there was no tuning string in it when I bought it. So having ordered the string from Martin I set to work!

 

If anyone is looking to do this then I'm sure it has been discussed before, but it is a real pain and takes patience. Martin's advice of masking taping each stage was really useful. Also remembering the process and the exact amount of turns is useful. This is contained in the service manual available on site. There isn't really an easy solution but be patient and you will get there!

 

The curry 400 is absolutely fine luckily, but I have got spare string if required.

Finally, has anyone found any cardboard tubing that is a good substitute for a battery cover? I need one for the 400! 

Thanks!

Nice to see all this Beolit transistors.

Here is my collection:

My last aquisition is Beolit 500, nicely looking, but aerial tip was fixed very ugly in the past. Could you help me with better photo (or dimensions) of FM antenna tip for Beolit 500? Or replacement antenna (even broken)?

I am still looking also for missing black disc on tuning wheel (Beolit 800) and one black slider for Beolit 707.

Found this advert in a danish car magazine from 1970. 

 

It says:

 

"Top News!

Judge it by its sound quality and take all its other refinements as Premiums!

The requirements for sound quality has grown rapidly in the later years.

But how can these demands be satisfied in a transistor radio?

Within small dimensions?

B&O has done it by, amongst other things, equipping the new Beolit 600

with a specially developed speaker - with a ceramic magnet og a frequenzy-

area on 60-15.000Hz!

This has so far been unknown for a radio this type. And the result:

A sound as wonderful as in a large radio!

In Premium, the new Beolit 600 is refined, untraditional in its design,

materials and colors. You can choose between red, violet, curry, black and 

white. And the suggested retail: only DKR 665,- (Roughly DKR 5430 in 2020,

$899, €725, £620)

B&O - for that circle of people, that discusses taste and quality before the price."

Please see attached photos

The cap is exactly 10mm wide on the top and the screw hole is approx 2cm. The cap slightly curves in as shown by the photos.

Hope this helps

Friend of mine produced me antenna tip from stainless steel (turning lathe), I polished it and glued with CA glue on last segment of telescopic aerial.

Nice.
