Just picked up a new project. It is a  Radiola-80 that I found at a yard sale for 15 dollars. I will be needing some help with this one because it is older than anything I have ever worked on (out of my comfort zone). I will post some pictures asap and start on it when I get the Zenith 7J323 off the bench. Is there any problem areas I should be looking for? All advise is welcome.

Yep. capacitors, chokes, transformers, resistors, and, much of that is encased in boxes of tar, or, in the case of earlier ones, bees wax.
Nice radio, but, not the easiest sets to work on.

Thanks Bill. I guess that I  need to get my feet wet sooner or later. Also have a Zenith and a Philco from about the same time period that I need to do but they are more or less basket cases. This one may be also but for 15 dollars I don't think I could go wrong. Wish me luck
