American Bosch 660-T (1936)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

American Bosch 660-T (1936)

American Bosch, a German company that produced primarily magnetos, opened a plant in Springfield Mass. in 1911. By 1920, they were producing 50% of all electrical starter parts. They started radio manufacturing in the early 1930's. When WWII started, they produced aircraft magnetos. By 1942, production had quadrupled. The 660-T is a seven-tube, three-band (AM,SWx2) radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We installed a safety fuse, new power cord, antenna lead and an audio input cable. The radio has "beam of light" tuning with a big, colorful glass dial and a tuned RF stage for exceptional reception. Gary stripped the cabinet, and utilizing catalyzed lacquer, ended up with a gorgeous "piano" finish. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are with the set. This radio doesn't show up very often, so it's an interesting piece for your collection. You rarely see them at this level of restoration. 23"W x 13"H x 11"D.  $849.00. (1600486)
