General Electric J62 (1940/1941)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

General Electric J62 (1940/1941)

The unique and attractive J62 "jewel box" was a very good seller for GE and quite a few have survived. This one had been stripped, stained and varnished when I got it. You can't strip wiped on stain, so I touched it up the best I could and put ten coats of lacquer and two sanding operations on it. Still some grain and joints showing. I was able to remove most of the stain from the latticework and grille to give it back some contrast. The last guy left the GE logo, so there was nothing I could do about that. The back cover has a small piece broken off near the bottom. All that said, the chassis is well made and a fairly good performer. The sound is surprisingly good from the perfect 5-inch speaker. Receives well on the internal antennas, with a terminal for external. I made a cable for the phono jack. As with the original, you tune off-station and connect your mobile device. My usual thorough restoration, with all high testing tubes for long service life. Despite its minor shortcomings, this is still a very nice little radio. Broadcast and short wave. 15"W x 10-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D.  $299.00. (1680116)
