There`s this brand new vintage wireless I made just yesterday
--well, something like that.
It started with the discovery of an attractive oak cabinet,
complete with tuning dials and tuning capacitors, but nothing
else apart from some vintage wormholes .The main cabinet was of
commercial origin and bore the logo "Miracle" inside
the lid and had also a hand signed "tested" label underneath
the cabinet giving it`s number as 5749 and dated 27/2/30 . The
baseboard and associated wooden brackets within looked like an
amateur replacement, as if someone had started a rebuild but given
up before mounting a single component.
It simply cried out for some "TLC" to bring it back
to life A second Telsen Dual Range coil had also recently been
acquired, making a valve line up of Screen Grid, Triode detector
and Pentode output possible and so the "Cabinet Three"
was born.Tuning is a two handed affair and to get a station accurately
tuned in requires a bit of "twiddling " with the dials.
