Alright, shame on me for not taking pics during the build. I was inspired by many of the awesome builds out here on HBT. Here is my 1941 Philco Radio that used to belong to my Great-Grandfather. Mom says he used to sit around this old thing for hours. I think I will be keeping up that tradition.

Just thought I would share. Sorry for the grainy pics. I will try to get some better ones.

No beer on my walls, I just hold the glass sideways when I pour.

Does the radio still work? It would be great to retrofit it to play brewing podcasts

No, the radio hasn't worked in years. I decided it wasn't worth trying to restore it.

Got some TapBoards for Christmas, reinstalled faceplate, and added some LED's.


Now I need to build something to cool my coffin. I'm getting the dreaded foam.
