DUAL

The tuner CT8 and amplifier/turntable HS39 purchased in 1974.
All seemed to be intact, only the turntable was missing.
Test amplifier and tuner: it works, but the tuner stopped after two minutes.
Tuner open, checked the fuses, and yes one was broken; but why? OH what smell,
a C broke down at the main supply board (C1 in the schema).
Soldering out, cleanup and new, old, C mounted. It's working!
Original the HS39 contained turntable CT1214, so hunting for a turntable.
Found one at NVHR market the CT1225, possible to build it into the HS39 cabinet.
Unfortunately the needle was broken, a second-hand DMS200 found on ebay.
The original speakers were no longer there, searched for this in a secondhand store and found something that looked like it, from Siemens.

It didn't look very original when I bought it in 2003 via marktplaats; the cloth was cut off at the edges and finished with wooden slats, the cloth was damaged and the color faded. The original slats, above and below, were still good.
The radio itself works, but could be better; lateron.
So: disassemble, get rid off the old paint on the slats and paint it anew, and finally looking for a better cloth. That I found at Corrien Maas, homemade fabrics, thanks. With a firm hand the cloth is glued to the board with wood glue. Quite exciting to cut the canvas for p.e. the  front plate and the knobs, long live the wood glue against fraying.

The bakelite had become dull and the pointer on the tuning scale did not run well anymore.
The white decorative frame had largely disappeared.
After disassembling I made pictures of the movement of the pointer wires. Fortunately still in possession of old tuning wires, good thing I'm a saver. After a few hours of fiddling, the tuning pointer ran as usual.
Polished the bakelite and painted the white decorative list and look at the result.
Just a pity the paint of the tuning dial is peeling off, I'm looking for a better one.

De wijzer liep niet meer.
Het oude loopwerk weer in elkaar gedraaid, zowel AM als FM.
Natuurlijk ook een beetje opgeschoond.

Op koninginnedag 2008 gekocht voor wel €7,50
De aandrijfriemen waren gesmolten, nieuwe op de kop getikt bij Ben Harmsen.
Het schoonmaken van die gesmolten snaren was een lekkere kluif, veel doekjes en oud krantepapier verbruikt. Voor als u dat ook gaat doen: denk om je kleren, die troep gaat er nooit meer uit!
Het mechaniek werkt verder nog als vanouds!

De lak was afgebladderd, hij heeft jaren in de schuur gestaan bij oom Andries.
Dus toen afgekrabd, geschuurd en gelakt.
De voedings elko was kapot, de gaten zaten er in. Deze vervangen door een nog werkend oud exemplaar.
Het speakerdoek ziet er nog goed uit voor zijn leeftijd.
