Default Vintage radios from Facebook

My wife is always looking on Facebook Marketplace for ornaments etc and she spotted three old radios for sale locally. A bargain at 15 for the lot. Since then I have spotted a couple of 1950s woodies, a radiogram and a Grundig TK5. I don't use Facebook myself but it seems to be a useful source of old electronic equipment.

Left to right are Murphy 192, Marconi T69DA and Murphy A362. The latter uses five valves with 0.1A series connected heaters and an EABC 80 (the set is AM/FM). I think a circuit diagram will be useful for this one.

There are almost as many sets on Facebook as Ebay these days.

My wife uses it a lot she sold all our surplus stuff after our rebuild, tiles, sinks, plumbing accessories, wood as well as some of the baby stuff we no longer need for our grandchildren.

It's free (no fees to seller) I will be offering sets shortly.

I have bought a couple of sets locally and would have bought more but I am trying to reduce the number of sets

Cheers

An interesting one (maybe) just popped up on my local facebook marketplace. Listed as a Swiss made gramophone, but is a Pye radio and record player (not sure whether it counts as a radiogram) with a Swiss made Garrard turntable in it. It's thirties judging by the valves. Tatty case and maybe some modifications. 20.

Not my area of interest, but if anyone wants more details I should be able to PM a link (unless it's OK to put the link here?).

That looks as if its got PP 807's.

It was easy to find first hit for "swiss gramophone" on Marketplace.

Looks to me as if a post war PYE tabletop radiogram has been re-purposed.

Probably done in the late 50's

Cheers

We had one of those Pye radiograms when I was a kid. I remember changing the needle from a set of spare ones kept in a small tin. My parents replaced it about 1965.

Cheers

Another item that may be of interest. RSC TA12 amplifier. Appears to have been 15 as a kit when new (1960s). 10 locally to me.
