Hi guys ive been away for awhile but im back to tell you about my latest find. I picked up a 1959 telefunken console stereo in not bad shape for 40 buks! I was told that the recordplayer works but not the radio. So i hauled this thing home, down into my basement and checked her over. The recordplayer has its own external amp so i plugged her in and yes the player works! When i checked out the radio i found 8 tubes missing! but i had 5 of em kickn around. ill let you all know what happens when i have all the tubes

Missing tubes are a clue that it quit, and they didn't want to bother getting it fixed or figured they could get more for the tubes?

I bought it from a guy that buys storage lockers so im thinkn he knows the tubes are worth some money. I checked on ebay and they are quite pricey.Im not really sure if he swiped em or not. Lucky me that i had some of the pricey ones kickn around!
