I saw the wreck of this set on ebay and set to fixing it up.
I was attracted by the fact it had an in built vibrator supply driving 2 volt filament valves.
I had never seen those valves since pulling some X Army transceivers apart about 100 years ago.
Lots of fun getting it going and looking reasonable.

Fred.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
