Recapping a Vintage Radio
If ya need something fixed, call GV... He conduit!
How is the patient doing.  Ya know I like to remain current.

yeah, there's no need to be negative. We need positive energy 'round here to give this place power!
Because I said so. 
I just gotta know. Socket to me...
Who's being negative ? The electron flow , that's who. This very clever manipulation of the negative potential of the atomic structure is fascinating to say the geekest.
New caps are in , valve pins cleaned and all is working quite well. I had to replace the speaker as the original one was a little stuffed [ all distorted and treble excessive ].
The waxed string in the tuning mechanism was shot so I replaced that with some fishing line and this too is now working well.
I'm cleaning some grime off the case and after that I will attach a new power cord and it will be reassembled.
I will post pics when it's finished. scratch chin [ We need a Geek smiley ]

All back together and returned to the customer. She seemed quite happy with it.

Wow, look at that shit!  Nicely done!

I can appreciate a good relic.  Old
Someone should put that in their signature…
The case has a crack in the back section on the top left. You can just make it out in the top view.
It had paint spatters on it too [ white ] I glued the crack and cleaned off the paint spots and spatter. I got a new tool recently, a Mini grinding wheel and polishing wheel which also has and extended flexile drive that can attatch drill bits , grinding stones , sanding disks and polishing disks which I tested out on the case. It worked well I thought.
