REES MACE "CAMEO" SC70
|NOTES||I don't often see Rees Mace products. Immediately after the war they seemed
to have used the "Cameo" trademark for a few models, though if
it wern't for the Trader service sheet you'd never know this was a Rees
There aren't many different ways to wire up a four-valve superhet and this set is no exception, other than for the inclusion of a bulb on series with the -ve H.T. line to act as a fuse "..to protect the filaments from the H.T. circuit". But why is such protection would be needed ?
|SERVICE DATA||I have an electronic copy of the "Trader" service sheet #836|
Not convinced the audio output transformer is original, unless Rees Mace had a thing against service engineers as the only way to access the radio chassis is to remove the entire contents of the cabinet - made very difficult when the transformer is screwed into the base so you cant get a decent screwdriver in there to shift it.
|WHERE FOUND||A donation to the cause.|
|Note the bulb at the bottom-right corner of the chassis.
An odd thing
for a battery set but even odder living behind a solid wooden
backboard ! Well, it's actually used as a HT fuse.
