Howdy, I've got myself an old vintage radio and before I get stuck into it, I'm wondering if it is too valuable for an newbie like me to be destroying. My intention is to restore it, but to be brutally honest, my skills are almost non-existent, so I susp

HI, If your Astor is a model KK, the valve lineup should be; 6A8G convertor, 6B8G IF amplifier, 6V6GT/G audio amp with a 5Y3GT/G rectifier. This model was made in 1948-49. If you need a circuit or any other info, let me know. Cheers, Graham...

I know this is a long shot but before I start a new thread, I was hoping Gfr53 was able to send me anything he has on the Astor KK radiogram, I have the circuit but nothing on the mechanism of the Turntable. I have seen some photos on the net and it appears I may have some metal bit missing but have no real idea what they do.
My email address gn03.me.com, thank you to Graham or anyone else who might help.
