Here is an interesting set which I have taken delivery of today so that I can repair it for a good friend. Quite apart from the beautiful and very heavy cabinet which I left behind, the chassis is nothing too unusual, 6K7 RF, 6K8 mixer/osc, 6K7 IF, 6H6 detector, 6N7 1st audio & phase splitter, PP 6V6s & an 80. However the name "Galleon" on the dial is somewhat puzzling. As the photo shows, it has NZ stations on it so one presumes it was made here. The cut-outs on the power transformer are vaguely familiar too. Two bands and a pickup input.
The plot thickens! There is a separate filament transformer for the 6N7 and dial lamps. Looks like an original feature so the main power transformer is under rated on the 6.3V winding. Actually, the whole under chassis is a bit of a mess. I've got some work to do.
I have attached the circuit diagram I have extracted from the set. Generally the construction is very sloppy - especially the soldering. The BC coil set looks like Inductance Specialists ones. I have re-capped etc and it goes well. I initially had a head scratcher on initial switch-on. The set operated but the sensitivity was very poor. It turned out to be the valve socket for the 6K7 RF amp. Pin 4, the screen grid was not making contact with the valve pin. Easily fixed but it took a bit of finding! I'm not sure about the 6V6s in the output. I have a feeling that they were originally 6F6s. Also the 6K8GT rather than a 6A8. More questions than answers me thinks!
Very interesting info. I have had another look at the chassis and there is nothing at all that suggests a model. I am also sure that the chassis has been transplanted into a different and very elaborate cabinet with front doors. There are two lids, one accesses the turntable, the other the chassis! The original cabinet definitely included the turntable because the wave change switch is three positions. Pickup, SW, BC and the pickup input is definitely original.
