NOTES Rear Lable [9K]Another chunky piece of bakelite though this has to be the smallest and cutest of the bunch.

Seems to have a few design flaws though, as the the text on the tuning scale is slightly obscured by the white plastic front but I don't for one minute doubt that it is the right tuning scale.
SERVICE DATA Nope :-(
CURRENT STATE Hunts Wax Capacitor [5K]A dusty chassis but it underneath it is very clean chassis with the components looking like they have lead a fairly cool life. The wax capacitors look like new, not that that means they are any good and besides they bear the dreaded name "Hunts".

Unfortunately there is a slight crack in the front white plastic but it's no too obvious. Oh, and I'm not convinced that the tuning knob is original, although it doesn't really look out of place.
WHERE FOUND B.V.W.S. June 2003 Wotton Bassett sunday outing for .. er .. I've forgotton ! Something like £35 ISTR.
