NOTES When it comes to early 60's sets - the end of the valve era - I find it difficult to find a set that I like enough to actually buy. And then I saw this lovely little set and I thought "at last my search is over".

Well, you could have knocked me down with an empty Scrumpy Jack can when I got home and found the set actually dated from 1956 !

1961 Advert for case [6K]They must have made more cabinets than they could sell as they were later made available through companies that dealt in radio kits. The advert opposite is from the April 1961 edition of Wireless World.
SERVICE DATA There was a copy of the "Trader" service sheet 1283 on CD#1. The set shares the same chassis as the far more mundane model DW1.
CURRENT STATE A bit grubby (those horizontal bars should look white!) but the all important case is undamaged. Could have done with out the sloppy gold paint over where some of the brass fittings live though.
WHERE FOUND At a recent auction for £20.
