|Bendix Radio Restoration Project|
This is an old Bendix Radio (Model 526E) from the 1940s. I ended up rescuing this unit from the local recycling plant, and minutes before a downpour too! Unfortunately, the power cord is frail and breaking; this makes it difficult to test. Internally, other than the thick layer of dust the internal components and tubes seem to be in great condition. I will have to check and (most likely) replace the big cardboard capacitor. I will eventually get to replacing the cap, and when that happens I will update this page with a video of the result.
