Fairbanks-Morse 8-AT8 (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Fairbanks-Morse 8-AT8 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

Fairbanks-Morse started selling radios in 1934 in Chicago. They moved radio production to Indianapolis in 1936. In 1939, the Indianapolis plant burned down, and Fairbanks-Morse ceased radio production in the USA. They did continue to produce radios and later televisions in Canada. Consequently, Fairbanks-Morse radios are scare, and the 8-AT8 is one of the rarer ones. The 8-AT8 is an eight-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set. The large, multi-colored dials were a feature of their radios. They were quality radios, and always get a lot of attention in collections. We replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked, and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, safety fuse, audio input cable and a new antenna were installed. The new eye tube is bright and active. Gary did his usual masterful work on this gorgeous cabinet. He ended up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. It has the original knobs, a period-correct grille cloth, and the chassis and speaker are all original. This is a large, rare set has great sensitivity, tone and volume and will be the centerpiece in someone's collection. 20"W x 14"H x 11-1/2"D.
