Default Ekco SH25 assistance Please

Gentlemen,

I have a 1932 Ekco SH25 superhet wireless in pretty pristine condition

It tries manfully to work, warming up properly, and transmitting stations can be vaguely found and heard….just needs a very delicate touch on the dial

However there seems to be a problem with the volume control. It doesn’t graduate smoothly up in sound, it has to be at maximum and all pretty crackly

The set would benefit from a ‘birthday treat’ and have a proper service

I'd appreciate to hear from someone who can sympathetically restore this almost 90 yr old, rather beautiful radio set back to it’s former glory.

I don't really know what the set is worth, and that's a bit academic. This is going to be a 'Keeper' and passed down to the offspring.

Regrettably the Home Service is no longer with us, but listening to the Archers (as was till Covid), with it's easily imagined Mr Cholmondley-Warner overtones … well, this is the only wireless to use

I’m based near Oxford, but to travel is not a problem

I look forward to hearing

Neal
