This is my latest find,,Northere Electric

Post by Dan Walker on Sun Jun 18, 2017 10:57 am

I bought this at an estates sale yesterday.
 It is a Northern Electric   tombstone, model C800.. It is the largest tombstone I own standing at  22 inches tall.
 It has the original grill cloth and knobs[except one] which I have.
I might have to replace the transformer, but I really like the dial as it had no dial, just  a rotating light  that shines through a disk.
 Quite a complicated system and I am glad I don't have to repair it.
I know it will look good after I do the cabinet and it is a keeper.

Nice radio Dan! You have some impressive ones in your collection. This one should be a stunner once you work your magic on it. I cant wait to see the final result!

I now have the radio all recapped. I hand to take out all three band switches to get at some of the caps.
The transformer was shot but I have another one and it will fit in after I drill some new holes.
I have to do some tweaking and do an alignment,
but it is coming along very well

Photos of patch cords for transformer

Post by Dan Walker Today at 11:48 am

These are the only photos I have at the moment.
 This transformer had a short on the secondary winding so I have to use the new one I bought for my rogers 10-12.
