All radios work when shipped unless ad states "not tested, or not working."  I will use USPS unless buyer has a preference.  PayPal or money order are the payment options.  I go to great lengths to make sure the set is operating fine when shipped.  If you have an issue, then contact me.  I will refund payment received, less shipping costs, if you are unhappy and the radio is returned.

My website has a little info about me, but basically radios have been a hobby since I was about 13, off and on.  I also volunteer for Maritime Historical Radio Society and repair receivers and transmitter equipment at the National Park Service, Bolinas and Pt. Reyes, California.  I do collect sets, but need to pare down.  I prefer "boat anchors" and have a number of very nice sets from the 1920's to 1960's.  I have a first class FCC license for various classes of equipment, but let it expire years ago.

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

This is an unrestored Neutrodyne TRF six-tube set, vintage 1926. Missing two lower knobs and all tubes. Otherwise in good condition. Both tuners work. So crack out those 01A tubes and get her going! Nice sloped front. Heavy so shipping will reflect that. 19"W x 11"H x 10"D.  $75.00. (1400070)

Steinite 261 (1928)

Early AC radio. Fred Stein had a booming business in Atchison, Kansas and my research shows he built the first commercially available AC (plug in) radio sets, (this one is 1928, most manufacturers started in 1929). This model 261 has a tag inside stating it was restored in 1986 by a man in Albuquerque NM (my birthplace) and all I had to do was clean it and install a set of good tubes. One photo shows current draw at 117VAC line voltage. I ran it last night for three hours. No issues. Tested on headphones and an A-K speaker. It requires a good long antenna to provide good reception. Just behind the volume control is a stepped switch that controls the antenna input. Headphone/speaker plugs on back, also a set of Phono plugs. Simple cabinet that is heavy, made of 1/2" solid wood and 1" solid wood front. Lighted dial. Uses 26, 27, 80, and 71 tubes. I put in a semi rare Magnavox 71 output tube. Included are a history of Steinite and schematic.  $225.00. (1400100)

Stewart-Warner R-1218-A (1936-7)

This is a lovely designed cabinet radio. A three-band set with a Stewart-Warner Kraft-Built cabinet. Beautiful swirled grains, heavy solid woods and matching face veneers. It has a unique tuning indicator. There is a reactance unit so when the station is fully tuned, the band indicator lamp goes out (in the small window above dial). This set works and sounds grand. External antenna required, the longer the better for the shortwave band. Fully rebuilt, aligned, tested, lubed. It was "rebuilt" by someone else, then I corrected everything. The escutcheon was cracked and is repaired. New dial window installed. Schematic included. It has been refinished at some point and it's a really nice looking set. Three-color dial, smooth tuning, big sound with a large top firing speaker. Large table radio. 16"W x 12"H x 10"D; heavy to ship.   $245.00. (1400101)
