Up for sale is a very nice Philco model 39-8t tube radio. I have polished and cleaned up for the wood for its new owner. It has been tested and does not work. There is a hum when plugged in but there is no sound. It displays beautifully and would make a nice project if you want to functionally bring it back to life. Please review all photos for condition. Please ask any and all questions prior to purchasing. Thank you for looking!

The make, model, and country of production are all unknown, but this vintage vacuum tube radio has been restored and serviced and is in perfect working order. This is a vintage vacuum tube radio of unknown maker (the power transformer is labeled “SEIDENSHA RADIO WORKS / MELODY”), which has been restored, serviced, and is in perfect working order. In order to give life to the item again, we have restored it to its original condition as it was when we first acquired it (electrical surgery), and we are auctioning it in the hope that it will be rehabilitated and put back into society. The exterior case is coated with oil stainless steel and varnished in the same color to bring out the grain of the wood, and although there are some signs of use due to the passage of time since it was first acquired, such as the missing back cover, there are two substitute dial knobs, and the speaker cloth (cloth) has been reupholstered and replaced. The tubes used are old ST tubes “UY-56 / UX-26B / UX-26B / KX-12F”, 4 tubes in total. The dials are operated by a “power switch” on the left side of the case, and “for main varicons / for playback varicons” from the top of the right front part. The main restoration work this time was to restore the chassis to its original state by removing rust with a scraper, applying oil stainless steel, and varnishing, The power switch had poor contact, which was repaired by applying contact resurrection agent / Replaced the power cord with outlet, speaker cord, and pilot lamp cord / Repaired the center heater bias wires of two UX-26Bs supplied from the power transformer, which were broken in the middle / The power supply choke coil was broken, and a 3K? /4W type resistor was installed / A 3K? /4W type resistor was installed and restored / A 1:3 step-up transformer was disconnected between B and P, so an equivalent transformer was installed / One UX-26B was in NG condition, so it was replaced with a good condition product / An electrolytic capacitor was in NG condition, so a new 22? F 450V x 2 was replaced / A horseshoe speaker was in NG condition, so a new 22? F 450V x 2 was replaced / A 1:3 transformer was in NG condition, so it was replaced with a good condition product. 2 new 22? F 450V speakers / The horseshoe speaker was missing, replaced with a new one in good condition / Removed the antenna coil, checked all the cords and replaced the wiring coverings / Installed the appropriate resistors and adjusted the plate voltage of each vacuum tube / The space between the varicon fins was corroded, cleaned the space between the fins and adjusted the position of the shafts.
