    Again another radio I feel in love with while restoring. This amazing GE F-80 was brought to me for restoration. The casing was done already but the chassis had some issues. All the rubber coated wire had dried out and was crumbling. See the pictures below. I actually found where the wire crossed with another and shorted to it. That is what my finger is pointing to, the site of the wire to wire short. So I removed one end of every wire, slid on new coating, heat shrank it in place, and then re-attached the wire. This can be time consuming and adds great potential to make a mistake. So I took lots of before pictures to make sure I get things right. After recapping and recoating it came to life. The dial was amazing along with the reception and tone. The tone was adjustable which was really nice. The casing was big but beautiful. This was one real nice radio. Again GE made some real nice radios when they wanted to. If you see one pick it up! Just make sure all the knobs are there. They are hard to come by.

Have one and want it restored! Please contact me with questions.
