Philips 543A


A very tired-looking Philips 543A. This is a Bakelite 4-waveband set (Long, Medium, Short, and VHF-FM) from 1954-55. It's a good-quality thing and when new would have cost a lot of money - just over 22 pounds plus purchase tax. Though it looks rough at the moment, it's all there and should scrub up well, both electrically and cosmetically. The owners have requested a comprehensive repair: this will involve a safety check and any remedial safety work; all major and minor electronic repairs; precautionary replacement of any components likely to fail, and - last but not least - refurbishment of the cabinet.
