Default Re: The Lure of old radios

Very nice.

Don't forget that Li batteies like that can deliver a lot of current if something goes awry with the radio, so it's essential you fit a fuse to avoid a fire.

You might be best just cleaning the remaining paint off the top panel with a non-stick pan scourer and some Cif and leaving it at that. Who needs labelled controls anyway? Many wooden- and Bakelite-cased radios had no ID of the knobs other than paper discs under them which were designed to be discarded once you'd become accustomed to what did what.

N.

P.S. How do you charge the Li cells?
