Anyone know the model number of this five tube? I can't find it.

How about a preliminary guess of "5E22AN"? I'll see what I can find and get back with you. It looks like a dandy set. Good luck.

Further investigation has revealed that you radio is, indeed, a model 5E22-AN, chassis 5E2, circa 1950, give or take a year or so. You can find the schematic diagram in Riders 22-5. I hope this helps and, again, good luck.

Glad I could help. If you need a copy of the schematic, I can print it out and either send it to you or scan it and email it.

Are we going to be favored with your sharing the restoration of your new toy with us? Very Happy

I have the Riders and Beitmans CD and have printed it out now, thanks to your info.
Yes, I will take some pictures and put together a separate posting if it turns out working. I like the older, all octal 5-tubes.

Just go ahead and put your pictures on this thread. We look forward to seeing your progress! Very Happy

I like AA5's myself. My wife cabbages onto the really colorful ones because she thinks they are cute.

I have that Riders/Beitman CD that I got on ebay for under $5. I don't know why everyone who works on radios does not have a copy. Mine has paid for itself a thousand times.

Me too. Best money I ever spent on eBay was that inexpensive CD--95% of the time it has what I need. Unfortunately, I also collect and restore VTVMs and other vintage test equipment...so sometimes I still have to order a manual from somebody.

Who do you buy your manuals from when the need arises? I use Steve Johnson and have been well-satisfied. He gives great service, has reasonable prices.

Steve Johnson or "Manual Man" on the ARF. Both excellent. The latter often has hard to find paper manuals for Heathkit equipment.
