Westinghouse WR-212 (1937)

Westinghouse WR-212 (1937)
This is one of Westinghouse's largest table radios, the most sought after and one of their most ornate. The chassis was removed, cleaned and all the controls cleaned and lubed for smooth operation. The tuning capacitor was removed, cleaned and lubed. The rubber mounts were replaced. All tubes were tested and if weak or defective, were replaced. All electrolytic and wax paper capacitors were replaced and out of tolerance resistors were replaced. A new polarized AC cord was added with a voltage dropping resistor to keep the voltage in the 108-110 volt range to keep the transformer from getting hot due to most wall outlets putting out around 118-122 volts. The cabinet was stripped and refinished with Mohawk nitrocellulose toners and lacquers, with light sanding between coats. The original grille cloth was torn and was replaced with a period correct reproduction, which actually looks far better than the original, in my opinion. This is a tight cabinet and an extremely clean chassis. 23"W x 12-1/2"H x 10"D.  $495.00. (1610009)
