|In 1921, Powell Crosley Jr. started the Crosley Manufacturing Corp. in Cincinnati Ohio. One of his first products was the "Harko" crystal receiver set. As the company grew and expanded, Powell obtained patents to produce superheterodynes. In 1924, he changed the company name to the Crosley Radio Corp. and the rest is history. He was one of the first to use Henry Ford's idea of the assembly line, and was referred to as the "Henry Ford of Radios." The 52TF is a nice five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) AC/DC set. We replaced all of the capacitors, checked all of the resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. A safety fuse and external cable were installed. The radio was aligned and plays with good sensitivity across the dial, utilizing an internal "loop" antenna. Gary stripped the walnut cabinet. He perfected a "piano" finish making this a beautiful, solid radio that should play fine for years to come. The original grille cloth and knobs were retained, and we installed a new clear dial cover. 13"W x 8"H x 7"D.|
