Silvertone Fiberglass Set
« on: August 18, 2016, 04:12:21 PM »
Latest eBay purchase:  this 1957 Silvertone 9041 fiberglass set in aqua and white, which arrived today. It's in very good condition.  The AM radio plays, but it is weak... might be a tube.  The turntable doesn't turn and platter makes a grinding noise when you turn it by hand.  The changer is obviously going to need a full service.  I think this is going to be a fun project.

HI Larry,

Believe it or not, there is a person on ARF who is seeking
the schematic for what looks like the same model as your
Silvertone. What's the probability of that ?
His unit may be stereo vs your mono ?

I'll go see what they are looking for.  Yes, they made a stereo model of this set a year or two later.

I'm waiting on parts to finish my restoration.  Gotta recap that amp (on a PC board, yikes.....), and install a new idler and small drive belt.  Yes, this one has about a 2 inch belt in it.

Yep, the one on ARF is the stereo version....
