Fairbanks-Morse 6-AT4 (1938)


Fairbanks-Morse 6-AT4 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Fairbanks-Morse started selling radios in 1934 in Chicago, in the plant that originally housed the Audiola Radio Co., which Fairbanks-Morse purchased. They moved radio production to Indianapolis in 1936. In 1939, the Indianapolis plant burned down, and Fairbanks-Morse ceased radio production in the USA. They did continue to produce radios and later televisions in Canada. Consequently, F-M radios are scare, and the 6-AT4 is one of the rarer ones. The 6AT4 is a six-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set. The large, multi-colored dials were a feature of their radios. They were quality radios, and always get a lot of attention in collections. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked resistors and tubes, replacing where necessary. He installed a new power cord, audio cable and wired in a new antenna. The new eye tube is bright and active. Gary did his usual masterful work on the rounded cabinet. He ended up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. It has the original knobs, a period-correct grille cloth, and the chassis and speaker are all original. This is a large, rare set and will be the centerpiece in someone's collection. 19"W x 12"H x 10"D.
