Hello, I just acquired a Westinghouse console radio with this chassis (8HFC5). I have not been unable to locate a schematic for it either. I was wondering if you have had any luck in that department.
Thanks, Stephen.

A pair of EL84's and a EF86 and the OT. And funky speakers if you are into that. Looks like ultralinear OT.

So the rest of the haul. Skipping the PT, I have enough and it is a crappy style. The two are 8" side firing speakers and the little one is the tweeter.

Those are made-in-North-America NOS vintage mouse droppings from the golden era of tube electronics. They have got to be worth a lot by now!

There's even a famous precedent, by Italian artist Piero Manzoni: How Piero Manzoni Turned Cans Of Poop Into $300,000 Pieces Of Art

A thought: perhaps ask a moderator to re-name this thread to something like "Bargain vintage electronics finds!"? You might get more interest and appropriate responses from other people with the name change. I'm sure there are plenty of other pack-ra...ahem, enthusiasts out there scrounging for, and finding, vintage electronics too!

The finds have seemed to take a life of their own. If I knew I would be finding a bunch I would have started a new thread. I still want to get on the 12BK5 amp, it has been sitting on my living room table since.

My time has been diverted on other things, one getting these radios and taking them apart. The other is my grow endeavors. Because of pain issues I tried CBD and found it helped. The price has come down some but at the time I thought I could do just as well myself and got my medical grow certificate. I have been building a little grow area and am putting together some LED lighting for it. That and searching the net to find out what I am doing wrong with my plants has been taking up a lot of my time. Seems the strain of high CBD low THC plant I have is finicky. In another three months I should know what I end up with.

Sorry to hear about the pain issues.

Unfortunately I am quite useless when it comes to any sort of gardening. I didn't inherit my mom's green thumbs, and any plant in my care perishes after a short and miserable life...with the sole exception of one cactus that was so hardy it survived in spite of my incompetence.

I am good with weeds growing out in the yard, picked a bunch tonight. Made a gate to keep undesirables out of the yard (damn meter readers).

What can I say? I could not help myself. I originally thought the console radio/record player would be a copy of the one I picked up which had a 6K6 output tube and a 10" speaker. The speaker and the OT was decent so I took a chance again, Did not even look at it and threw it in the trunk and drove home. The speaker and transformer is a little lower in quality but still should make a reasonable champ.
