Hi I intend to refurbish a HMV LITTLE NIPPER RADIO. It has the appearance of a 64-52 model but has a shortwave section. I have studied the available circuits but cant find one that exactly matches. The difference is the volume control is tapped and the tap is fed to the tone control through a 33kohm resistor. Just wondering if any one has struck this. There is also some minor changes to some component values.
Regards Bowler.

Don't know if you've downloaded this one.
Different values may have been used depending on availability of parts at the time.

Wish you luck

Here's the chassis that should be in your model

Beware of R6 feeding the screens. That one in earlier models was two parallel 22K resistors. I have seen a few examples where "I" squared R wins with the 10K resistor as the current draw of the screens exceeds one watt. It then fries.
