EVER READY "Table Model"
|NOTES||Prior to World War 2, Ever Ready manufactured many wooden-cased table-top
battery radios. However, post war they concentrated on the portable radio
market making use of the new miniature battery valves. This set is therfore
unusual in being a post war table top radio and is also unusual in being
made of bakelite.
The area behind the control knobs are recesed, allowing the chassis to be held in by nuts. However, you 'aint gonna get a spanner in there, time to buy more tools :-(
|Not directly. The data for the Ever Ready TypeA looks a reasonable match
for the circuit and can befound on CD#1,
although this is described as a portable set whereas, although very light,
this set does seem intended to stay put.
This set's valve line-up does match type A's and the line-up seems to have had been a short-lived series since the widely-used miniature all-glass '91' range (DK91, DF91, DAF91 and DL92) appeared a year later.
|Has been worked on in the past. Two of the controls are not original,
and the loudspeaker is a modern replacement which is held in by dabs from
a hot melt gun.
It also looks like it has been affected by battery leakage at some stage, and there only seems to be one wire connecting to the frame aerial.
|£20 from the May 2003 N.V.C.F.|
The windings of the frame aerial are hidden by
the wooden frame at the back of the set.
Red metalised valves do look pretty though, don't they.
