Default 135 McMichael Cabinet and dial.

Finding another McMichael 135 at auction, I was shocked to discover that the radio chassis is missing.

So I have a cabinet with the tuning dial and glass, the speaker mounting frame and a back panel, all in fair usable condition with no beetle that I can see.

If anyone can use these, please let me know. To try to recover a bit of the outlay I would ask for 5.

I can take this to Golborne on Sunday if someone wants to collect from there otherwise its Middlewich.

Sam.

Shamelessly bumping this back up, I don't want to throw it away, its far too good.
Can bring to Gnosall on the 18th of May.

Its in good condition, no worm, new piano hinge, the lid stay is present and so is the dial and glass. It also has a back panel which is undamaged.

Not enough sun I'm afraid! Will try if the weather improves.
Meantime try this Radiomuseum copy. My speaker fabrics are much better than this. The wood is lighter, not mahogany but walnut?

Hi Paul.

If I may I will give it a bit more time to see if someone wants the whole shebang, but if not, certainly you could buy the back. It is in perfect condition.
PM me in a few days please. I'll forget!
Sam.
