Zenith 6-D-2620 "Boomerang" (1942)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Zenith 6-D-2620 "Boomerang" (1942)

Like all manufacturers, Zenith was scrambling a bit to produce products right before the war. Bakelite was not readily available, so the designers came up with wooden designs to use up an inventory of existing chassis. Zenith engineer Kurt Emde, who designed the "Robot Dial," came up with the "Dial-Speaker" design, which Zenith patented. This chassis was used in seven "Boomerang" models. The D-2620 is a six-tube, two-band (AM,SW), AC/DC radio. We replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. We installed a new power cord and a safety fuse. The radio employs a "Wave Magnet" internal loop antenna and has good reception across the dial on both bands. Gary stripped the cabinet of straight-grained Walnut. He finished the radio with a beautiful lacquer "piano" finish. A new Mark Palmquist crystal-clear dial cover was installed. The radio has the original knobs, chassis and speaker. This is a perfect example of a 6-D-2620 that would grace any collection! 14"W x 9"H x 7"D.  $599.00. (1600525)
