I have just managed to acquire a Technico Aristocrat portable radio in good condition. I believe it may be a Model 859 although the red ink for the model number is smudged and it is difficult to distinguish the numbers. The serial number is RI6998 and it looks a bit like a small sewing machine case, made of wood and covered with a fawn and brown patterned cloth with two latches similar to those on my old brown school-case. The tuning display is square and on the left with the speaker on the right covered with a cream cloth and the tuning and volume knob below the speaker all encased in a brown cover. Below this by removing two screws reveals the battery compartment with two 45v sockets? and a 1.5v socket? (I think this is what they are but I am not sure)
I would like to be able to get this radio operational and any information as in schematics or info would be appreciated.
