    It was quite a bit of work but it looks and sounds pretty good. On the inside, it got a new EL84 and an EM80, all the tar and electrolytic caps were replaced, a few resistors replaced, a tuning capacitor soldered back on, a new power cord, a fuse added and maybe something I’m forgetting. The lacquer on the cabinet was scraped off and new lacquer put on. The brass parts were cleaned and polished and knobs cleaned.

    I’m still not finished though, when I get my function generator in the mail I will give it a full alignment, I can notice two peaks per channel and the dial is not quite right. More out of spec resistors should probably be replaced too. It does work well as is too, with a wire connected to the antenna input I was even able hear a lot of shortwave stations!
