Kelford resistance coupled 3 stage amplifier
 
with data sheet and short-wave radio           construction plans.

One of the applications for these 3 tube amplifiers was in early television receivers. The amplifier's input would be connected to the output stage of a radio receiver that used to tune in the television broadcast signal. The amplifier would boost the signal to a level high enough to excite the Neon lamp used to create the scanning disc image.

Offered, as found, as-is. It's complete with tubes and all it' components. I tested the tubes as 201A's and have emission, no shorts but I do not know what the expected reading, bias or other settings should be. As 201A's they test  a bit weak.

SPECIAL one of a kind, Hand Crafted Crystal Radio Receiver  "Mrs. Lowe"

From my collection, this one of a kind was very special to someone, a Mrs. Lowe many years ago. A beautifully made crystal radio built into sewing basket. My guess is that it was made for (whoever Mrs. Lowe was) as a gift. Who was she.... someone's favorite teacher maybe? We'll never know but one thing for sure, you can tell that it sat proudly in one position with the lid open near a sunny-side window for a long time. This can be determined from the images as the panel is sun-bleached from one direction (note un-bleached shadow areas).

Whoever built this was not only an excellent craftsman but clever and resourceful, take a look at the crystal holder image. It was made from a brass 12 gage shotgun shell. You very seldom find a home made radio with the rotary  switch points that are symmetrical. This radio is made as well (or better) as any factory made piece.

This came from the collection of an old-timer (who passed away about 20 years ago) in the Gresham, OR area. That's all I know about it.
