Default Radios for sale (some free)

I have too many ‘projects’ at the moment and I need to let go of some of them! Photos in separate posts below!

These are available for collection from my home, just south of Bristol, or from the swap meet at RWB on 3rd July – sorry, but I will not post them – FCS is also welcome, of course

1) 2 x HMV 1508 radio / gramophones - I have not done anything with them (not even tested) as they require unobtainable mains plugs – or re-wiring. One has a conventional cartridge / stylus, the other requires a specialised cartridge (sorry, I know they have a name, but I can’t remember what it is!). These are free

2) 2 x HMV 1127 Clock Radios – I have had these working, but it was several years ago! Only 1 knob is missing - £10 for both

3) Portadyne U51 – has been restored (not by me) including a re-finish to the cabinet. It was working when I bought it – not sure now. £20

4) Ultra 101 – substantial and heavy – it has not been restored and there is no back – the dial is there, along with a box of bolts and screws – will need a fair bit of work! This is free

5) Ferguson 101 – again – this was working when I first bought it 10 years ago – but I haven’t tried it since then – doesn’t seem to have a dial glass – I’m not sure it ever had one! £5

6) GEC AC4 / BC3640 – bought from one of the BVWS auctions – the cabinet has been re-finished – it is all there (I have put the dial glass in a safe place - somewhere?) - eminently restorable - £20

7) Ferranti 1037 – someone has created a new cabinet for this (not a bad job) – again, it was working when I acquired it – not sure now! £20

8) Zenith B600 – this is working and is in good order – I was using it in a spare room during last winter, but I need the room now! £50

9) Zenith G500 – not tested it for a long time – in pretty good condition £20

10) Zenith H500 – there is a crack in the fascia (see photo), but this is just cosmetic. The cabinet material needs a bit of a clean – there is an operating guide and various other bits of documentation (including the receipt) - £20

11) 2 boxes with Eveready Sky Leader (4 off) and Sky Master (3 off) Trannies – The Leaders all have their straps and I think they all work and are in good condition. The Masters consist of 1 complete working model, with it’s strap and 2 others for spares.
£10 for the Masters, £20 for the Leaders

12) 2 x Sanyo briefcase systems. One is a G2311KL AM/FM radio / record player / Cassette recorder-player which I restored a few years ago - I put an IEC mains socket in the side – all was working then – complete with twin microphones. The other is a G2615N-2 AM/SW radio / record player / cassettes player-recorder – no microphones and I have not really tested it (assume it doesn’t work and be pleasantly surprised when it does?). £10 for both

If you want more information on any of these (ie more photos), please ask. If you want to buy anything, please use the PM system and put a message here
Cheers

Items 4 and 6 are reserved for radiomarktv for collection at RWB
and item 12 is provisionally reserved for JohnBHanson, if we can find someone to take them back to Worthing (FCS)

That means the following are still available :

Cheers

I have put up the picture of the Ferguson 101 from AJS 37's post and added a link from RM

I took it to mean there was no glass over the dial to that there was no station dial your not confusing it with the GEC are you in the picture that has the dial glass removed in the picture.

https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/ferguson_101.html

They look pretty similar to me.
