Marconi Model 347

Acquired this set on Ebay for a very good price. Cost more in shipping. Really did not expect it to survive the trip, but having been well packed, no damage done. A few capacitors and the usual on-off switch was missing, someone having drilled a hole in the side of the cabinet to put a toggle in place. Ummm. Valves looked all to be original. Main problem was the tuning gang condenser was flopping about as the rubber bushed ah crumbled away years ago. Robbed some bushes from a CD mechanism. made for the job. Slow power up and the set worked well, even the magic eye worked, amazing.
