Here we have a spectacular Zenith model 5R-312 tube table radio. This famous set was made in 1939 in Chicago, IL. This radio is known as the "record stack" or "pancake" for its unique grill and is coveted by radio collectors. This radio has been restored electronically and plays great with a nice mellow tone.
The radio has a very clean five tube chassis with a power transformer that receives the A. All electrolytic and paper/wax capacitors have been replaced with modern type capacitors. All tubes have been checked and replaced as needed.
Resistors were replaced as needed. All moving parts were lubricated. The chassis has been aligned back to factory specifications. A new dial light has been installed.A new power cord has been installed. All controls work as they should. A line fuse has been installed under the chassis.
The original 4 speaker sounds great. The push buttons work fine and can be set to your local stations. The bottom push button must be pushed in when manually tuning.
You can play this radio daily with no problems. The cabinet is very solid with no cracks or hairlines and is glass smooth. The cabinet has been professionally repainted in antique white. After the paint was cured I polished it to a very high shine.The replacement grill cloth is a close match to the original. The original knobs have small chips out on the edges, refer to the last photo. The dial graphics and numbers are perfect. The dial lights up very well. Don't pass up the opportunity to own this fabulous art deco radio.
