Default F. Stephen Masek's HMV468 restoration

I'll add more posts to this thread as the restoration progresses.

This radio has been sitting in my garage for too many years. I've now got it on one of my work tables, with the chassis removed. The cabinet front and sides are good enough to save, but not the top, so I may just refinish the top. I'll try.

I bought this at a sale in San Diego at the home of a deceased collector. Somebody did some work on it, but most components appear to be original. A Marconi model seems to have the same chassis.
