Had to take a business trip out west, but before I left I got the cabinet most of the way reassembled. I was going to just swap out the glass for one of the repop ones I had made because it was really nasty and I didn't feel like cleaning it, but it wound up being a slightly different size than what RCA used so I was forced to bust out the simple green and Windex. Also shined up the sliver parts, came out pretty good.

Here's the speaker board, they sound pretty good! High frequency driver is a more modern type, unsure if the exposed magnet will affect the screen purity. If so, I'll make a shield for it out of thin steel.

No time for anything else prior to the convention, I'll finish the chassis evaluation and clean up the knobs when I get back.

Side note: this chassis doesn't have an H-lin coil in it, the damper just goes to B+. Any harm in trying to put one in there? Schematic calls for 215ma on the output tube, I read 232ma on my meter with line voltage at 117 and B+ reading exactly what it should. I'd like to get closer to, if not under, 200ma to be on the safe side.
