Westinghouse Radio

Post by Triton46 on Mon Mar 19, 2012 9:48 am

Hi All,

First post! My Grandfather and Uncle both did electrical work when they were alive. Grandpa repaired TV's from the early 60's through the late 70's and my uncle was an electrical engineer. My Dad and I have been sorting through Grandpa's home since my Grandma went off to a nursing home. We came across a Westinghouse tube radio that my Dad remembered when he was a boy. I have taken on the project to "bring it back to life" sort of speak. It isn't in too bad of shape but needs both cabinet and electrical repair. More on that to come... Smile

I have been googling for Westinghouse tube/antique radios but am not turning up much. I need some help identifying this radio and hopefully find an electrical schematic. Here are some pictures.

Please post a tube line up. That will help narrow things down a bit.

A suggestion when you take photos, take at a slight angle rather than right in front of radio. It helps by preventing seeing the glare from flash.

Ok this may be close to what your looking for.
The difference is the position of the controls and push buttons. But it may be the same otherwise.

Beitmans 1941 (vol. R4)
Page 169 Same tubes and shortwave band, very close radio cabinet style.
WR-186 or Wr-12X7
Ill look some more later if I remember, LOL

Thanks Cliff!

I have been looking through nostalgia air this morning...always coming up with a 5 tube chassis where mine has 6 tubes.

It comes down to that 12SG7 tube. I cannot find a Westinghouse that has it...but I did find a few GEs with 6 tubes.

Its likely it could be a GE or RCA chassis, but hard to tell right now, looks like you will have to do further investigating.

Can you make out the Stamped chassis number in the bottom corner on the back?
