NOTES With a ferrite aerial on a rotatable wheel and a tuning indicator, this must have been an upmarket set of a typical late 50's style.
SERVICE DATA I have an electronic copy of the Trader service sheet 1439.
CURRENT STATE Top view [13K]The set looks a little rough, but the case is undamaged. With some soapy water plus an application "Bake-o-Bright" the case came up a treat. Repaint the white band, clean the knobs, this set will look like new !

"That" capacitor was very leaky - as they always are it seems - and the output valve cathode resistor was open circuit and a funny noise emanated from the rectifier valve. It now seems to work *too* well with some stations so strong there is distortion and the tuning indicator goes right of the scale. Time for a capacitor witch-hunt.
WHERE FOUND July 2001 auction at Sambrook for a fiver.
