Default Ekco PB189 back board and speaker

PB189.

I am just starting restoration on an Ekco PB189 and although in quite good condition it is missing its back cover & speaker. Would anyone out there have these. I've checked all the main inductors and transformers and all is well so looking forward to working on my first motor tuned radio.

Neil24-7 kindly made a replica back board for me a couple of years ago, and a very decent job he made of it. Not sure if he is still doing them - his last post was in April 2018. Maybe send him an email as opposed to a PM? I've attached copies of the labels - you'll need to resize them. Cheers, Jerry

I thought you could just click on Neil24-7's name against one of his posts, and the drop-down menu would give the option to send an email, but as you've obviously discovered, in his case, it doesn't although it works for others. Sorry to give you a bum steer. Cheers, Jerry

I have a couple of speakers here I believe to be from EKCO 30s sets. If someone can supply a picture of the original I can see if one is suitable ?

Thank you Andy. I have only just been offered a set with a backboard and speaker. ☺ So I should be ok now. Collecting on Saturday so will let you know if still required. I think it has an xposed square looking magnet but not sure. Around 8" thanks again.

I bought another Ekco A28 for spares as I was restoring one. But I couldn't break that up as its still more or less complete.
