This Stewart Warner is in for restoration. Some repairs have been done but not a full chassis restoration. This radio will receive all new capacitors, resistors and have the power cord re attached. And that "Capacitor to Nowhere" (Pittsburgher's will remember the Bridge to Nowhere from the '70s) will be properly connected in accordance with the schematic. The 6K6 audio output tube reads as bad on the tube tester. This necessarily will not keep the radio from producing output but it will be greatly compromised.
The original finish was chipped off in some areas. A fingernail could flake off the finish by simply scraping your finger across the surface. This is not normal. This is the stripped cabinet with, some imperfections filled in with wood filler. The wood filler has not been sanded in these pictures. Part of the lower front right base was split. It has been glued and clamped tight and filled with wood filler. The base repair will be painted black and will not be seen.
Lacquer is still drying.
This radio is ready to be shipped.
