EB5AGV's Workbench: Drake TR-4 restoration
Will this rig ever come back to the air?
This page is devoted to my Drake TR-4 transceiver restoration project.
I got this unit as a gift and, as you can see, in pretty bad shape. But, curiously enough, this kind of project rigs is what I enjoy more to restore :-)
Unit as received
These are some pictures of the unit as I got it:
There are some obvious missing parts:
- Five knobs
- Front panel spacers
- Most tubes
- 100kHz calibrator crystal
- Dial bulbs
- VOX pot
- Cabinet screws
- Cabinet bumpers (front and rear)
- Mode indicator red cap
Some other parts will be needed as restoration advances.
Any help getting these missing parts will be welcomed!
More to come soon... keep tuned!
