A collector & I are looking at a de-clutter: He has a very nice Astor & I have a couple, plus an empty cabinet, taking up space in a container. These will fit nicely into a trailer , or onto the tray of a small truck.

Interest..........?

I will get one of the Astor easily. The others may be a bit of a challenge. Chaos here at the moment, too many projects & not enough time & parts. The two tractor engines will be the big time killers but not until we pass the fire danger period. Fire season; as soon as you pull one down you will need it.

Hi Marc
You and I spoke ages ago about my interest in radio grams - in particular stereo ones. Let me know if you have any available and I’ll organise to come up
Cheers
Scott

I will check on the Astor its several K away. I think there is a big Kriesler & it is Stereo. The Clubs HMV (mono) has issues (intermittent) which I think is the switch. If I get rid of the clutter, I might be able to get it out of the shearing shed to a place where I can work on it.

At least Girl friend has her own container. However, there is a shed invasion. Like a Mulcher & a Circa 1911 -1941 IH food grinder that needs a tractor (mine) to drive it.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

This group of photos is of the Thorn that I posted on looking for the circuit. There is a stray wire that looks like it belongs to a negative termination.

At this point its probably a reverse engineer, really don't need that. I will ask Brad to shift them. I did contact HRSA but a this point, no feedback. I have contacted Radio Museum also, waiting.

The transformer in the picture is not its original: It self destructed with the help of the metal rectifier.
