Philco Radio

First step was to remove the speaker, antenna and chassis from the radio.
I used a compressor to blow out the chassis and cabinet.
The cabinet was washed with soap and water... don't get it too wet!

The chassis was in very poor condition, but cleaned up nicely!
All tubes were carefully cleaned and checked on a Precision tube tester
The knobs and pushbuttons were cleaned and polished.
All controls, switches and pots were sprayed with a good electronic cleaner and moving parts cleaned and lubricated, as well.
The electrolytic and paper caps were replaced.

The cabinet was carefully hand sanded...

Several coats of Tru-Oil later...

The Philco back together again!
This radio works well and has good selectivity and sensitivity.
