Default Re: Back panel repair

Hello,
Just thought Id complete the story.
Ive been sidetracked lately but managed to finish the radio tonight. I had some issues with a broken wire on a coil which was a challenge to fix and the dropper which was set to the wrong voltage had a badly corroded connection.
I bought it mostly for its looks but after changing the Hunts and couple of out of spec resisters it works well and the performance is quite good for a 50s TRF.

And the fix for the back does as I intended.

John
