Sparks wrote:It was a job to get the chassis out. Found on internet advice to unsrew the feet on bottom of set either side of tuning dial. One was missing, and the other was exceeding stiff. Eventually grabbed it with mole grips and used brute force. When it came away, it was clear that it was not a screw at all, but had been knocked in with three prongs. Then removed the third one with the mole grips to find it was the same. The fourth, and last, was the screw! Chassis then came out easy enough. I doubt if I will restore it properly. Most likely take out all the mains section, rewire the filaments in parallel and get it going as battery only.
