I've got around 50 old floor-model wood radios. Very difficult to store the safely. Unheated storage makes a mess of the old capacitors in them. Uneven heat and humidy raises heck with the woodwork. I've got a dozen Zeniths with their famous "Wave Magnet."

My favorite is my Crosley. Short wave just sounds better when it comes out of it.

These are the ones I've got in my heated shop right now that I'm jerking around on.

Ansley-Dynaphone - table-top, radio and record-player, 13.5” deep X 17” wide X 15.5” tall, short-wave 6-18 megacycles (49M-16M), BC (broadcast band) 500-1700 kilocycles, 33-45 RPM record player, some knobs missing, poor finish on wood.

Atwater-Kent - floor model, 550-1500 megacycles. 25” wide X 15” deep X 38” high, rear nice physical condition

Atwater Kent Model # 37 radio, ca. 1927 metal table-top radio with two knobs on front, remote speaker model E. Radio is 10” deep by 17” long by 7” tall. Speaker is 16” high, 16” diameter round, and 5” thick and stands upright on its own. Nice condition. Probably simple broadcast band - there wasn’t much on the air in 1927. AC power but has some strange stuff inside of it. Beautiful gold ship insignia on top.

General-Electric - GE-221, tabletop 540-1600 kilocycles, 6-10 megacycles shortwave, 14” wide X 8” deep X 9” high - poor finish.

General-Electric -HE-100L, large table-top model, has longwave, shortwave, standardwave, 140-400 kilocycles, 540-1600 kilocycles, 5700-18000 kilocycles, Super-Heterodyne system. Poor finish, one knob missing, veneer peeling off in places. Was a real neat radio at one time.

General-Electric -M-67, floor model, 24” wide X 12” deep X 41” high, bands A-B-C-D, but I can’t find the mystery “D.” A - 550-1700 standard band and police band, B - 1.8 - 55 megacycles amateur and aircraft,police, C - 5.5 - 18.5 (16-49MM) aircraft and standard broadcast, D - who the hell knows, 5 knobs, Super-Heterodyne system, 540-18,000 kilocycles, 105-125 volts AC, 50-60 cycles, 85 watts. Wood intact but finish poor.

Majestic - Model 15, tabletop “Tombstone” type. 9” deep X 13” wide X 15” high. 550 - 1500 kilocycles broadcast band. Wood intact but finish poor. Super Heterodyne Screen Grid system.

Majestic - Model 71 radio with model 70 chasis and optional AC powerpack. Grisby and Grunow Co. I think this was originally a battery radio that came with the optional AC powersupply. The powersupply is big and heavy, but fits out-of-sight inside the back of the radio. Nice wood but faded finish. 15” deep X 27” wide X 47” tall, it’s a big old farm radio. Seems to only be broadcast band and has three knobs. Made in 1929.

Philco - upright floor model radio. FM Armstrong system and broadcast band, and also a record player. Real nice condition wood.

RCA -810K-1, floor model with broadcast band and shortwave. Made 1937. Wood all there but poor finish.

Stromberg-Carlson, upright tabletop radio - “Tombstone” type. Standard broadcast band and shortwave, “Triple-Range.” 550-1500 broadcast band, 1.3 - 3.4 police band, 16 - 49 meters, 6-18 shortwave. Wood intact but finish crappy. 10” deep X 15.5” wide X 20” tall.

Tabletop - unknown make - I took apart, no ID, no schematic inside that I can find. Real cute little radio, pretty nice wood. 7” deep X 13” wide X 10” high, “Tombstone” type. Standard broadcast 55-155 with police band, shortwave 19-49 meters (5-15).

Viking - canadian floor model radio and phonograph. 50 cycle, shorwave and broadcast band. 19-49 meters shortwave, 17-6.0 shortwave??, 55-160 broadcast band, with original manual, real nice wood. 14.5” deep X 25” wide X 31” high. Works for awhile, then smells funny, smoke comes out, I unplug.

Zenith - chassis 5678 - floor model, 14” deep X 24” wide X 39” high, 6-18 megacylcles (49-16 meters) short-wave, 1.6 - 5 megacycles short-wave, 550-1500 kilocycles standard broadcast band, wood all there but veneer peeling off, with “Wave-magnet.”

Zenith - floor model, 16” deep X 24” wide X 35” tall, FM 100, FM 45, and SB and Phono with “Cobra” arm - takes 10” or 12” records. 42-48 megacycles, 88-108 megacycles, 55-160 kilocycles. Real nice condition wood and finish.
