I bought this one from an add on Kijiji.. it has been recapped and it plays good.
  The cabinet had to have a new top so the whole top and bottom were stripped.. I used Extra dark walnut on the bottom and Vandyke around the top edge.. the sides were pretty good and all they needed was to be cleaned and I used a little'' trade secret'' on them. It came out very nice and I do like the Sparton mirror dial.. I had to order a plastic dial cover from Mark Palmquist. and it should be here in  a day or two.

That looks very nice. Not certain what the "trade secret" is but it worked well.

Trade secret is sort of like old English.. I get it at Wall mart or Home depot.. It darkens the little dings that these old radios get. You just wipe it on ,,leave it a few minutes and then wipe it again with a clean cloth.
it is a liquid that comes in a dark or blonde color.. I use the dark.
