Default 1939 Marconi Console needs saving! Rochdale.

HI All
Model 888. No wwodworm. Rear cover in place.
Price 5 pounds.
See photo.
Works quite well, though no resto done. Tuning stiffish, but presets
work ok, and adjust.
I have pinched the kt61/6p25 from another set, so will wish to retain that.
Could wait till next Golborne, but otherwise must go.
Regards John

Hi John. It looks very interesting. I'm hoping to be back in Rammy by the end of next week so a short trip through Edenfield and over the hill to Rochdale [in my brothers gas powered estate car] might well be a possiblity Didn't you organise the pre Golbourne meetings in Sale at one time or was that somebody else?

I tried to look the 888 up but it's a bit confusing [for me anyway] A significant 888 thread [from 2012] has it as actually being a 1107 in the end [a standard woody] instead. Both sets have 5 valves [yours is minus a KT61 I know] and the 1107 also has X65/DH63/KT63 and a U50-is that the same as the Consul?

Ok John. I will be in touch next week. Unless there's any delay here on the coast we should be able to sort it
