To any RMorg Hacker Radio Enthusiasts,

I don`t know if anyone amongst the RMorg membership is also a member of the Hacker Group forum as I am, but if anyone is contemplating any major work on one of these truly brilliant valve radios, I did an article on the total re-build from chassis up, and sent the photographs to the Hacker Group.

There is a downside, even if not a major one, if anyone would like access to these photographs - you need to join the Hacker  Group, as these are only available to members.

On accessing, because of the security, you will be requested to join the Hacker Group as I said.

There are 20 photographs in total, and show the errors I made when trying to refurbish the wooden case, as well as details which I didn`t cock-up, like capacitor replacement.

 You should note that in the last photo` there appears to be a gun under the table in my total mess of a conservatory where the rebuild took place - as a form of explanation, this was only an air rifle which I was simultaneously servicing!

For any American readers of this article, the Hacker Group has recently been in contact with the Grundig Radio Group in the US, where these Grundig enthusiasts have just come across the Hacker radios, and there is cooperation between the two Groups over introducing themselves to one another.
