SNR Excelsior 52 Restoration & Chroming

Messagepar erginates » Jeu 5 Juil 2018 11h21

Hello everyone, my name is Ergin and i am from Anatolia, i mean Turkey :wink:

Recently i found this old guy in junkyard, he was very tired because of 67 years old as you know.


a Picture when i first found :

Image

he lying down with garbages.. what a shame :oops:



First procedure was disassembling..


Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

After that, ofcourse i checked alelctronic and mechanic condition. all of caps dried and leaked as i expected.

All caps replaced with new caps. deeply checked all resistors and some of them replaced too.

actually mechanic condition was very Good, i just add some grease in to moving parts.

Next step : Paint removing and polishing.

As you see paint is very bad condition and some rust on surface. i removed all of paints with chemical paint remover gel. Attention ! this paint remover very dangerous and if you thinking use you must be careful and use protective Googles and gloves. This application should be apply on open air place.

Now some pictures about paint removing..




Image
Image


Next step : Ni/Chrome electroplating.

i dont have electroplating equipment :lol: so this means i need proffessional electroplating company.
i sent all metal parts to local company for plating and one week later they come back to me.
Va la !


Image
Image

Next step: Re assembling.


Image

Image
Image

Most important and sensitive part 'mirrored glass' thank god. still intact and Good condition.

Image

And finally result.

Hello Erginates,

As you seem to have no LW/MW/SW stations in Turkey, please be informed that our club has developed & sells a miniature FM adapter module for vintage AM-only receivers. The module uses the radio's original tuning capacitor to synthesize the local oscillator frequency to cover the FM 88-108 MHz band. Output is baseband mono only audio fit to attack the radio's phono input or regular audio amplifier section.

You can find it here :

http://radiofil.com/module-fm-5,p558.html

You need to be a RadioFil Club member to purchase but you will certainly get some help from other members for a one-of purchase.

Best Regards
Jhalphen

Trad rapide : j'informe notre correspondant Turc de l'existence du FM5 pour sa radio qui ne reçoit rien en PO/GO en Turquie.
