How to remove the chassis from the cabinet?First turn dial to number 72. You can see a small arrow on the dial.
This dial position unlocks the chassis from the speaker. After that, remove all knobs, loosen the chassis screws and pull the chassis from the cabinet.
Probably you will notice two holes on the top of the back cabinet arch. These two holes are designed to give a screwdriver easy access to the speaker screws.
Originally the radio used 80 and 45 glob tubes exactly like the ones shown on the picture.
The chassis made by Colonial Radio Corporation.
KnobsThis model used generic Sears Silvertone knobs. You can find these knobs in many Silverone models made between 1931 and 1933. The two outer knobs are ¾” and the two inner knobs are 1”. It is easy to break the ornamented top of a knob if you install and push the knobs too hard. Remember to be careful.
