Philco 38-116 (1938)
(wood tube console radio w/SW)

Philco 38-116 (1938)

This massive five-band receiver was Philco's second-of-the-line for 1938! With coverage to 18Mhz on SW the chassis has 15 tubes with a power output of 15 window rattling watts from the Push-Pull 6L6’s! This set has the automatic tuning mechanism which has a tuning knob on the edge of the dial, to tune a station, you simply use the knob and turn the dial around until it stops. The dial stops because there are up to fifteen selector stops on the mechanism. It also features Magnetic Tuning which pulls in stations to center tune them quickly. Aside from the massive Woofer there are three acoustic clarifiers, which are called passive radiators in today's terms. Tone controls are featured for both Bass and Treble. The cabinet is one of the Philco slant front "No stooping, squatting or squinting" designs and has quite the array of patterned exotic veneers on it with the original knobs and grille cloth. This set has been in my collection since 2004 and was a massive restoration of both chassis and cabinet, something few restoration experts will undertake for the value of the set making this one an outstanding value at just $650 fully restored and warranted! 43-1/2"H x 27-1/2"W x 19"D.  $650.00.
