No 19 set gurus on here


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


Are there any No 19 set experts on here? I have one that requires a lot of the inners -mainly valves and other gubbins associated inside etc -and I would like to get it to a working set - it would be easier to pay someone else as I haven't time to do it or even to spend a lot of time trying to source bits.


Ideas please

The 19 set was not a radio set that was designed to repaired, except for very minor faults. Hence well over 300,000 were built! Most were built in sub-assemblies, in homes around the Cambridge area by outworkers. The radio was designed, by Pye. It was designed to be cheap, quick to make, cheap, and cheap! If yours has much missing, the time etc to put it back in working order will be huge. Most 19 sets had the B set removed post war, and many have been got at over the years. Some valves can still be obtained, but are not cheap about £25 for the main transmitter type 807 valve.
