What's happenning????

Post by Bill Cahill on Sat Apr 07, 2018 8:23 pm

People show up but don't post. It's not just slow, It's dead. We need photos and posts. A lot of you have interesting things and have done fine cabinet work and have your shops in perfect order.. You could show pictures of your work. From beginning to end.. Please folks, let's start posting again...

Hi Bill;; I did try to post some photos of radios that I refinished,
but when I went to add the photos It said they were too large and that the maximum size was [0 MB].
I have resized my photos and they work on all the other forums, but I can't load them.
Can you tell me what is going on ?
Thanks Dan in Calgary

That was the old one. They ""modernized" the thing. That way is no longer usable. ;The new one works off of Icons over your post. I can't get that because Avast won't let me..........

Here is a new project.  It is a Zenith AM-FM radio.  Right off the bat it needs filter caps. I'll post photos of my work as I go along.

Dan, at the top of each section of the forum is a global announcement with a tutorial on how to post pictures with the new set up. If you follow it, your pictures should post. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it and only the extremely largest of files needs to be resized like most forum's.

Here are some photos of radios that I refinished.
I don't own all these radios , as I sold some to get money to buy more radios,
so I can refinish them

I know I like to see a few other peoples radios and I hope some of you like these .

The Zenith radio is finished.  I replaced the filter caps and it sounds great.  I'm not into recapping a working radio.  Here are some photos.

Working, or, not, the original paper caps get leakey, and, allow voltages they shouldn't. It can do a lot of damage.

I agree with bill.
I change EVERY cap on any radio I do .. The radio may work after the electrolytic caps are replaced, But I have found caps that were pretty much bulging at each end, and they do dot work properly.
Each to his own.

I agree. However, I haven't worked on anything in a long time, and I'm out of parts. Right now I'm just happy that it works. I'm about to get into a Sentinel.
