Picked this up at a local auction was waiting for another item but as no one wanted this I thought I better save it as it was only £1.
It was in fair condition but needed a good clean.
A fresh set of PP7’s got some life but she was a little intermittent,
Removing the boards and attending to the various dry joints seems to have sorted that

All in all not a bad little set.
But sadly missing one knob and I do not seem to have anything suitable in my meagre collection off odd one.
Could someone that has this set do me a picture of the knob and let me know what size it is so I can keep a lookout at radio rallies etc
The one knob that is still there is white with brass insert

I fixed up one of these just recently. My one had the tuning knob but was missing the volume knob.
I managed to find a similar knob which had a silver bright with the pointed dome sticking out. I prised it off and painted the underside a sort of gold colour. Not too bad a match, well at least it was better than no knob.
I am sorry I cant measure the tuning knob as I dont have the radio any more.
