I just bought another Deforest Crosley

Post by Dan Walker on Mon Sep 18, 2017 12:29 am

This is a  rare Deforest Crosley  model 8D991, I believe it is 1938.
It has the 6X6 eye tube, which still has some color; a bit dim but there
      The cabinet will have to be done, but I do like the dial.
It is getting too cold here to do the cabinet, so the chassis will be a winter project.

Very nice! This one looks ideal for the shortwave listener. 6 bands all together. That's impressive!

I have recapped this one and it plays very good.. The best part is that the6X6 eye tube is quite bright.
this is the first 6X6 that I ever got that was still good.

6X6 voltage increased

I have increased the voltage for the 6X6 eye tube and now it is quite bright, and it opens and closes very good.
I have to wait until spring to get to the cabinet.
