38 Special Regen

This was one of my early building efforts that turned out very well. For some reason I do not understand, this set has regeneration so smooth you have to hear it to believe it. Note transparent protractor scales used for tuning. To make the black letters stand out, the scales were backed with white paper. Set is now in the Joe Walsh collection.

When observed from the backside, the completed receiver has a ‘jewel like’ appearance. Note the detector tube and coil are tilted backward. If and when this set ever goes in a cabinet, the tilted coil will be easier to change.
