I'm going to replace all the woodwork. And there is going to be new fabric on the woodwork where the speaker normal sits behind. Also I'm gonna cut the plexi (Radio bar) with laser (Not my cup of tea so I let a proffesional do it.)

I'm tryin to make this build as original as possible, with here and there a touch from me. It's obvious that is not a radio anymore when I'm done. But hope the results are good for a 'radio' look.

I love the bulbs like I said before, they are coming back in the build. But I need time to think what I want to do with them. I heared from a friend that I can power the working bulbs. Hope it will work. Otherwise I will light them with Leds.

Also a good Idea has come up in another forum. The Leds that I'm making myself has a new feeling to it, but because it has to be old here is the idea: "Take an acrylic tube, paint the inside brass, put the leds in and burn! It would look like a tube! Hope this works!

First things first! I need to clean and polish the Radio. It's not in a good state know. But is will be in a week or so. When the weather is good enough.


Back to the drawingboard. Till next!

Update!

Before the snowfall here in the Netherlands, I tried to polish the outside of the radio. I wanted to know if I can do it succesfully. Because I don't want to damage the radio,

yet wink.gif

So I tried at the underside of the radio. With succes, pfff. But I didn't clean the inside yet. This is now on my "todo-list". But when I polished the Radio, I saw that it's

gonna be great, but also I saw that it's gonna be a looooong polish... and polish again and again. This definitely is the same as lapping a CPU. Hours of work!
This was session 1



Stuff that I needed:
Sopje (Water en Soap)
Wasbenzine (Degreaser)
Commandant 4
Copper Polish
Sheepskin polisher
Clean polish fabric
Auto Glym (Car Polish)

The sun came out for a couple of minutes, so I made a picture. Here you see the polishwork I've already done. The reflection is there finally! I didn't clean the bottom, so you can see it as a reference.


[HR][/HR]

In the afternoon I had some spare time. A nice moment to visit the stores. The wood cost me a total of €3,50. Not much at all!

I've chosen for 2 materials. One piece is MDF and the oter is Multiplex (Plywood).The Multiplex(Plywood) is for the front and will be covererd with new radiofabric. The other one, MDF is for the backside.

And I gave the mounting of the mobotray some thoughts. I've chosen for the best sollution. I'm gonna use M4 thread which I'm tapping into the radio. For attaching of the motherboardtray I'm going to use extension bolts. Where the original M4 screws can bolt in easely. Have 8 of them, that should be quite adequate to hold the tray, (to float).



I have not chosen just hardboard. For it is in fact the same color and it is thin. But bends too easily. Eventually my choice was MDF, this is some what harder and easier workable.


I'm gonna replace the old piece by a new piece of plywood, luckily I have the old ones. It is easy to trace. The old wood was also made
of Plywood, so no need to use a different type of wood.


This was my update till now. Hopefully I can get some things done this weekend. *Cleaning it is*

Haha, Yes indeed. Placed this build also on TNET and HF.


Minor update, that I have to show.

I have drawed the backside op the radio on the MDF. It needs to fit excactly.


Here are the parts together. Motherboardtray and the Corsair 200mm FAN.


This is how I think about the frontside of the 1949. I don't have space left in the building to insert/install the Fan. But there is always a way. I think that I can make the fan in the wood. That would solve the spacing problems.


Till next!

Thanks iwalkwithedead for the sub! Enjoy the ride!

Update!

To bad I have to work today, but I did a little bit work. It's not much but it's something.


I drawed the outlines of the original radio. But I had to remove the original fabric. I did it with much pain in the heart! It's 64 years old. Hope I do more good with it then bad! But I have saved a sample of the original fabric.


Afterwards I drawed the outlines from the Corsair 200mm Fan.


It's a close call between the original opening from the speaker and the Fan. But I need to sand it off anyways.


I'm gonna redesign the plexiglass. I will make into a grill.


Till next!

Today I've got some spare time again! Finally weekend. So it's time to do something with project: 1949

The drilling and sawing is the first thing I did. Had no interest in polishing and cleaning the case first. Maybe I'll do it tommow.


After sawing the hole in the frontplate, the Corsair Fan was next. I enjoy working with my multitool. The best thing I've bought for years.


The rest of the Plywood needs to be sanded. But the beginning is there.


Ofcource I had to check if it's fits.


It fits! Gladly! Here en there some sanding to do, because the fabric needs to go into the hole to.


So let's turn the plywood around. Oke, I'm going to spray the Fan with brass. Yup. It's a better color then black.


So let's try if it's going along as planned. I've got pictures of it in my head. But is must be the same.


Here a little teaser. But need to think it over what I'm suppose to do with the plexiglass. Need to make a sketch first. Hard choiche there.. keep it original or..


Tomorrow is another building day. Till Next.
