    Radio didn't work too well, only the record player connected in the socket. Still need to replace ferite core of medium wave coil, rewind coil in the IF filter and put replaced film capacitors into the original glass cases.

    So I found this little guy in an antique shop in Reno a year ago. It’s a 1942 Philco Transitone. It caught my eye because it is entirely made out of wood. I picked it up for about $30. When I got it home I gutted the internals and velcroed a Philips Bluetooth speaker inside, all the preexsisting holes lined up for the plug and to turn it on and off. I then downloaded numerous 40’s albums to my phone. Now I have great sounding music out of my old Philco.

    I hope that you still have the chassis
    These Transitioned are great first restorations. Simple chassis, easy to work on, and they play well. It is a simple matter to add either a Bluetooth receiver or an audio mini jack so that your program material may play through the original electronics and loudspeaker.

    Unfortunately I do not. I didn’t even know that was a possibility. Sounds like a fun project, I will have to look for another radio and try it. Thanks.

    My General Motors Radio Corporation Console radio. The front door in the middle slides up to hide the controls. The speaker is mounted in the Bottom and faces the floor.[​IMG][​IMG]
