I was given this one by an acquaintance, moving into a retirement village. He described it as a 6V radio, I had doubt. Normally I do not collect, but if it needs saving, I will often acquire.

The knobs are HMV but not correct, however better than the only one it had. It got treated as a commercial fix and was opened up & evaluated: Look what was under the dirt: Mint, even the back is intact. So all the cabinet got was swimming lessons, to avoid scratching it.

The result being that I refurbished it, wrote an article on it and sent it to Silicon Chip about a year, or more ago.

Photo uploaded.

An identical photo dated 30th November, 2022 is in the system. Unfortunately, the search feature cannot search by date.

UPDATE: Found it. https://vintage-radio.com.au/default.asp?f=5&th=61&offset=2. Searching by filename is possible.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

In a lot of cases I archive the digital photo's and info on a lot of sets by Brand & Model. It looks like the info was submitted to SC around March 2023 & there was a problem as it had to conform to some "criteria" which would destroy some aspect of the description.

The unit was acquired in Nov 2022 and pretty much refurbished in a week. There is also a Breville 730 and a Philips 132L and a New Zealand Pacemaker.

The current search engine in widows 11, makes the XP one look brilliant.

Agree, widows 11 search engine is a pain in the star washer.
