Beautifully shiney bakelite - shame about the ***** camera :-( - however there is a chip out of the underside of the cabinet which you can't see without lifting the set.
The bottom cover should be held on by four hexagonal bakelite chunks, internally threaded. These have felt attached to them thus doubling as the feet of the set. However directly threaded bakelite was never going to be very rhobust and indeed one foot is missing with a second held on only by the use of some carefully stuffed cardboard.
There are signs of comparatively recent work, such as the metal HT rectifier having been bypassed by a modern semiconductor diode in series with a resistor.
The C.R.T. has been replaced with an equally ancient Ferranti part.
|December 2003 Wotton Bassett bash for £130. This would be an exceptionaly good price if the cabinet were perfect. As it is, it was just a good price !
