NOTES A nice not-so-little bakelite set built up on 3 chassis !

Mullard MAS6 [5K]The same chassis's were used in a similar design, the Mullard MAS6 (opposite)which was released in July 1936 for £9 9s 6d.
SERVICE DATA Thanks to Arjan & Karin at "A World of Wireless" for supplying a copy of the Philips service manual.
CURRENT STATE Clean, no cracks and complete although it requires a new speaker grill cloth. Apparently long wave is working, but I'll not apply any power before a thorough checking out.

The case is bakelite but on a wooden base. Some woodworm have had a slap-up meal on the base but looks like they've moved on. Just in case, however, the radio is quarentened until I can chemically nuke the wood.
