I've looked everywhere online, including the radio museum, and I'm yet to see anything at all on this one. surprises me as when I came across it (The Amazing Mill Market, Daylesford Vic.) It seemed to be something rather common back in either 40's. That it either uses mains or battery power is what took me to buy it. I've only given a quick clean over but it is nearly 100% condition (piece broken away rear corner of the dial area, but found inside, so I should be able to attach it. It has some light splatter marks lower front, but I think they are unlikely to removable, and wont try in fear of making it worse.


Thing is, what can anyone tell me about it? Hope the photos are good enough. (when they are processed)

If you unhide your email address (use Control Panel) I'll send you the schematic and alignment notes.

Sorry, didn't realise it was hidden. Should be visible now.

It's done by default. It's my experience that most members don't realise that.

OK, sent.
