Zenith L566

I don't have a camera but I did borrow some ebay images to give folks an idea of what I'm working on. I'll be getting a camera soon and will post pictures of my actual project.

Yeah, I had been wanting a tube radio but it's slim pickins around here. What is here is usually overpriced. I spotted this Zenith in an antique store sitting on the floor. Most stuff there is usually overpriced, especially the radios so I didn't give it a second thought. My dad stooped down to look at it and saw it was only $10. I couldn't beleive it. Even though this isn't very stylish compared to some, I really like it and I'm thankful that I was able to get not just a radio, but a record player to boot. I couldn't be happier. Well, actually I'll be happier when I can get to work on it.

Update on the L566. I got the phonograph out without much trouble and the chassis wasn't much harder to get out. Looking at it from underneath, it looks like this will be fairly easy once I get my new caps. I also have to get a string for the tuning knob.
