  • Battery table model. Basically the similar chassis metal work as used on the Sky Queen (1953), The 1954 Sky Prince replaced this model and uses a similar chassis  as does later Sky King and Sky Lord.

    Up to Serial No.544750 there are many variations of Model T, From Serial No. 544750 the  DK92 DF91 DAF91 DL94 are fitted but in the last year of production some late models designated "S.Q." by Trader Sheet 1098 (June 1953) use the 1953 release "25mA" valves


    TB2A, TB2A, TC2A and S.Q.:  This only differentiates the four  versions of tube/valve socket wiring /lne up and these codes are NOT anywhere on the Model (not even Chassis). These are only "in house" or factory codes. The Ever Ready manual doesn't mention an "S.Q." version, but does state that intermediate versions between the initial DK91 DF91 DAF91 DL92 plus lamps and DK92 DF91 DAF91 DL94 (no lamps, all modifications) with any mix of modifications may exist.

    • B136 battery  90V HT & 1.5V LT,
    • Consumption: HT 10mA, LT 125mA

    The three earlier versions use incompatible tubes but identical cabinets. Later versions omit the scale lamps, which use a button above the tuning knob.
