It was a great meet today. My daughter got at least three radios and I got one for parts,one in pieces to experiment with, a tube intercom system and my favorite piece for me,a Ford toy truck with a radio in its camper. I will post pictures later if anyone is interested.

That was my table with the huge collins radio and the huge signal generator. Heavy enough to give you a hernia.

If you recognize me next time your there let me know its your table. I try to buy from the folks I know first. I am trying to cut back to just junk radios for parts, RCA items , and advertising stuff. I try to buy from Larry and Kelton as they are the ones who put it on. They got probably 90% of what I spent this time. I will post more pictures But here is a preview.

This is a radio my wife got. I need a clock like this has. I have one of the old techron clock radios and I think it is the same. Don't worry I won't gut this one for it. She wanted it and its in too good of shape to gut.

Music City meet HPIM8332_zps1a5e3a7a

This is my daughters haul. I told her if she got one or more we would fix it. She got a federal with a flip down radio. Its in really good shape and still has the design on the front. She got a oldsmobile radio which is the chrome one in the bag. Then she got the lee radio. It still has a decent finish. The Arvin is not bad at all.

Music City meet HPIM8327_zps61176b7f


This is my haul. I got the crosley for parts. I think it was used for the parts but I think the parts I need for my crosley is there. At least the best I remember. I have a green one. The zenith is busted without the pieces. I think I am going to try to refabricate the sides if I get the radio going. The wooden speaker box and other box with knobs is a philco intercom system. I plan on restoring it and then install the main box in my house and the speaker inside my shop.

Music City meet HPIM8329_zps8a69afe1

Another piece I got was this calendar. I had wanted one from a old shop but most of the ones I saw that were older were not from shops. The ones from shops I have seen had the old pinups on which I didn't really want. I like this one and it is from 45-46. I plan on putting out in my shop.

Music City meet HPIM8324_zps4d610fe1

The last piece we bought was a table. My wife found a 1930s Italian made table. I think she is going to leave it as is.

Music City meet HPIM8322_zps134b3ced

I have actually cut back on buying stuff from the meets. I think this was the first time I didn't buy any books or service manuals. I didn't see much there as far as manuals like I usually see, I probably overlooked them. I want to quit buying big radios except to restore and sell. I like the small tabletops like the zenith or crosley. I just don't have the room. The other reason I want to cut back is that if I fixed one a week I would have enough radios to redo to last for five years or more. I did see someone that brought a lot of boxes of junk chassis. I would have got some but I was low on cash and we had filled up the vehicle by then. I guess I need to start fixing some to sale. The way I have been paying for the trips has been to sale scrap I have. I have been cleaning out my shop when I can and the money I spend was from old copper,aluminum and steel I had. I have also been hauling off some for the mother in law. She has probably made 1000 or more from the metal I sold for her. I still have about a 55 gallon drum full of old copper wiring to strip. Most of it is like cat 5,telephone, and power cords. I have the parts to make a wire stripper I plan to make this winter. So that will give me the cash for the next meet or two. By the time I use that money up I hope to be fixing stuff on the side again. When I get to that point I probably will rarely buy a radio for myself. I probably will buy some I can fix and sale, books and other repair stuff,and advertising items. Anyway we had a good time. Our daughter lives about 10 minutes from the meet so we went up on Friday and spent the weekend with her. We didn't get back until late yesterday afternoon. So thats why I didn't post till now.

The truck with the camper is a small toy truck from the 60s. It is a nylint toy truck. Its about 14 to 16 inches long. I have a real drivable 66 truck. Here is a picture of the drivable one.

Music City meet Truck_zps49aaa8a5

This was my first vehicle. I wasn't looking for radios but I saw this one. After my daughter got her some I had enough left over for this toy truck. It has a small transistor radio built in the camper of the truck.

No trailer with it, just the toy camper. My truck still drives but I haven't drove it in a while. I do have a small 13 foot scotty to pull with it. Some of the toy trucks put out by nylnt in the 60s did have trailers. I remember seeing a UHaul one at the rental place as a kid and wanted one. The good thing on the toy I bought is that the truck has no scratches from what I can tell.

Both. The truck body is metal. The wheels are plastic. The camper is all plastic.

I used to have a Tonka cattle truck with plastic cattle. You were meant to ride on it. By the age of six, my riding days were over, but, I sure loved that green metal truck on plastic wheels.
