If anyone has one to part with, I want it. I just recapped one, my first radio recapping and it was successful! Amazingly :) So, now I would like an original manual to complement the radio. Once I find one, I will scan and make available to anyone that needs a great copy, seems all the chassis images on the Net are terrible.

You guys are First Responders. I have Chuck's book, somewhere... I seem to have forgotten the X represented the crystal, this set is just the S-15, my mistake in hearing what the neighbor said. My first thoughts were $250 was way high for what he had. A museum fit restoration might fetch $300, maybe, but knowing how my son 29 and his similar aged friends feel: "your stinky old radios," does not bode well for future values and homes for these things we love. I have my dad's SX-16 restored by the Great Henry Rogers, when he still did such and a beautiful and complete SX-28 done by Halli member Nick, both with matching speakers, the speakers obtained from members on this site. Both reside in their private room accompanied by a restored S-38A and original working SX-19R. If it were worth it, the S-15 might have found a home here, but I need to be very selective so I do not end up like many on the Hallicrafters and other radio preservation web sites.

Evidently the filter could be added aftermarket. I am not sure about the screws but Hallicrafters liked to use sheet metal screws that had a combination hex and slotted head. AFAIK they are still available, try McMaster-Carr or someone like that. Labels are probably a lost cause although you can have duplicates of metal ones made and paper or cardboard ones can be made on your computer printer if you can get a scan of an original (need that for the metal label too).

You can see my finishes I have done on various Johnson equipping at W0YBS.com There is also a guy on Ebay that sells spray cans of the stuff at about $25.00 shipped I think.

Dont recall the year but if you bring up Dark Claret on most automotive paint stores it should bring the correct color up.

I have an E revision SX-117 currently on the bench. IFs align all good, but when I got the oscillator section, I can only get output at Test point 1 on 80 and 40. Replaced the 12AT7, which resulted in better output on 80 and 40, but nothing on 20,15,10. Checked the crystal oscillators with my IC-718, and I hear signals as appropriate, although my 20 meter crystal seems centered on 20.460. Regardless, I can't get a peak on the VTVM from the coil like I can with 80 and 40. Even put a 25 MHz crystal in slot three, and it seems to work OK (18.750 MHz). All band switches look OK, and could have swore it was working at one time (few months ago.) Any suggestions as to possible failure points?

My SX-28A has a badly abused band switch knob. In fact it looks like it got very hot and/or got hit with something hot. I have a friend who has a high tech 3D printer and he says he can build a new knob around the old brass core. He can use my abused knob for some of the measurements but he would really like some high res pictures of a good knob from several angles. and a couple of dimensions in case mine has shrunk from the apparent heat.

IIRC. What is the difference between those voltages and what you see with 'moderne' analog or digital meters?
