It is important to determine it's approximate vintage. If it's from the 30's,40's or very early fifties than it will probably need to have all it's capacitors replaced before trying to use it. If you plug it in you may burn out it's circuits or even start a fire, This is because the old capacitors used a wax paper insulator which will have melted and dried out and can cause a short circuit. Chances are the power cord will need replacing also. I have had work on my 42 Silvertone console done by a gentlemen in Castro Valley named Ben Martin (google Ben Martin's radio attic). He is very nice man and extremely knowledgeable and fair priced . Capacitor replacement ran approx. 10.00 per tube. Congrats on the radio! Please post pictures. I still have to complete the cosmetic restoration of my console.
