Midland M6B (1946)
(wood tube table radio)

Midland M6B (1946)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This five-tube post-war set is one of those off-brands where it seems they only produced just a few models over a short period of time and then faded away. Based in Decorah, Iowa, The knob configuration on this model is unique in that they're positioned off to the side, under the speaker, rather than the traditional location under the dial scale. Also unique to this set is the very different type of tuning, variable inductors instead of the normal variable capacitor. Called slug tuning, it's a cam type mechanism used to move what are called slugs up and down while turning the dial indicator over a 300 degree arch. The cabinet is well built, with a wood back cover. It's been completely refinished using toners and topped with a light spray of clear enamel for durability. The chassis has been gone through with all new wax and filter capacitors, a strong tested set of tubes. The controls were cleaned and lubricated to make them move as smoothly as they did when new. It's a strong playing AM radio with lots of volume (brand new volume control was added), easily receiving all of my local stations. Requires a long-wire antenna for distant reception (or use the aux cable to stream your own audio). 16"W x 9-1/2"H x 9"D.
