restoration of an Olympic Model 6-606, a 1946 portable tube radio

As of last weekend i have started the restoration of a portable tube
radio, it is an Olympic Model 6-606. This radio was built in 1946.
It is cable of running off either batteries (two type B 45 V
batteries and two type A 4.5 V batteries) or line voltage.

So far, most of the wax and paper capacitors have been replaced and
most of the electrolytic capacitors.

Waiting on some mail order parts, including a new leather handle and
a high voltage electrolytic.

More to come later..... Stay tuned!
