Here are two Breting 14 communications receivers. My goal is to combine both of these chassis into one restored unit.  Each of these chassis have been modified and worked on.  One has missing components in the detector section.  The other has what I think is the BFO coil moved so it is front panel accessible. I will verify this BFO coil through circuit tracing.  One chassis has a choke added so a permanent magnet speaker may be used.  Both chassis have additional holes drilled into the base.   

We must remember it is an inalienable right and privilege for all communications receiver owners, especially Hams, to modify their equipment as they see fit. Collectors and restorers must keep this in mind.

The challenge will be to remove all chassis parts and sockets to have the metal chromed.  Actually the real challenge will be replacing all the components.
