Thanks to Kenny Richmond, more patterns of grille cloth are now available for our vintage radios!

I want to show you photos of the many patterns he is now offering along with a few comments of my own. Kenny was kind enough to send me a sampler of these patterns, so I have seen them "up close and in person" and I am very impressed with the high quality of this cloth! 👍

Let's start with what is perhaps the most popular Philco pattern, the 1935-37 chevron or "V" pattern:

It compares very favorably with the "V" cloth used in the 16B "Deco" tombstones, and is a great substitute for all 1935-37 Philco models using this pattern.

Next, we have a very authentic pattern used in the Philco 80 Jr. and 81 Jr. cathedrals - the "Small Herringbone Weave":

A perfect duplication of this cloth. Better get it while you can!

A similar pattern is the "Large Herringbone Weave" cloth used in Emersons and some other vintage radios:

The "70/90" cloth pattern is another cloth that was used in a number of Philco models as well as some earlier Zeniths and possibly others. Kenny now has a good substitute available:

Two diamond-type patterns are currently available. Here is one, a good generic diamond pattern which could be used an many different radios. This picture does not do the cloth justice, in reality it does look much better:

Another excellent diamond pattern is reversible - this photo shows both sides:

He also sells an excellent Zenith "block pattern" cloth for those of you who need this for your circa 1938 Brand Z consoles.

You can find this cloth on eBay here:

or just go to Kenny's website:

And don't forget to thank him for all of the time and effort involved in making this cloth available again.

Gawd, those little preview pictures make the cloth look horrible. Go to the eBay link or to Kenny's site to see what the cloth really looks like.

I have been waiting on V-cloth for my Philco 116-B. Thanks for the information.
