Had an interest in older radio/stereo's for a while now, mainly for the playing of my LP records, and have recently purchased a 1933 Kriesler console radio. Anyhow I'll post up pics and info soon as I have a few questions in regards to its restoration and identification.

Cheers Nathan.

It would be of interest to see under the chassis. That mains cable & plug just have to go. That rubber looks like a cable I took off a 1948 phillips last week. It was cracking.

Having two gangs in the tuner the Mixer oscillator is first.

I would suspect that the set, in similar manner to the EMMCO, of the same era, uses a plate detection system so I would expect a higher than normal cathode resistor on the 1st Audio valve.

Those IF cans look, in a way, like EMMCO; If so there are trimmers and they are on the base. EMMCO (later email) made radio's & radio parts.

It is not a good idea to have the same radio in several places on the same site.

Agree!

To avoid confusion, technical discussion of this set should be confined to the thread already underway in the General Discussion section.

Killer Spkrs!
It says "Rola Co (Aust) Pty Ltd, Melbourne" on them

There was also a deluxe Kriesler TV that had 3 large Magnavox (a 10WR + 2 x 10"LF?)

There was industrial corridor along a highway in Melbourne - Eastside? - where you could see the Rola factory as you passed by! Don't know how long it survived?

Rola were in Richmond - due east of Melbourne city.
They were taken over by Plessey (British) in the 1960s.

Would see it from the Hwy (before Fwy) from my uncle's car as car Astor radio played pop tune"House of Johann Strauss" so it must have been 1964:
