Sparton Radio Rebuild

This is a Sparton radio console from around 1940 or so as best I can tell. It was not working when I got it so I did a basic recap on it and cleaned up the controls.

I have been somewhat sucessful at getting it running however I suspect that the tuner needs to be aligned and lately I have been getting a periodic buzz and crackle. I suspect that I have some sockets that need replacing (I suspect the rectifier socket is too loose) and possibly some bad resistors.

I have done notheing at all yet to the turntable.

This project will have to take a backseat however since I have to get my Granddaughter's mini console project done.
