Air Castle 720 (1939)

Air Castle 720 (1939)
NEW!Air Castle was the store brand for the Spiegel catalog company. This is a rare set and I have only seen one other. It has seven tubes including the green tuning eye. It is a very sensitive radio and picks up well. It has AM and SW bands. The chassis had some rust spots so it was removed and the chassis painted with Rustoleum Silver Hammered paint. All the controls were cleaned and lubed. Controls: Volume, On/Off/ Tone, Tuning and Band. The tuning shaft is spring loaded and you push it in to engage the tuning capacitor. The rubber end had hardened and was replaced and works perfectly. All tubes were tested on the Hickok 600A tester and any weak or defective tubes were replaced. All electrolytic and wax paper capacitors were replaced with current production capacitors. The resistors were tested and if out of tolerance, replaced. A new polarized AC cord was installed and a voltage dropping resistor to keep the transformer cool. The cabinet was stripped and refinished with Mohawk toners and lacquer. The speaker grille cloth was toast and replaced with a beautiful reproduction that compliments the maple band. 19-3/4"W x 11"H x 9"D. 17 pounds.  $375.00. (1610017)
