Here we have the Caddilac of Zenith’s 1941 line of table radios. This highly sought after model 7-S-633R features a gorgeous dark walnut cabinet, large black dial, wrap around grill, numerous tone controls, automatic tuning, loop antenna, powerful 7 tube chassis, and exceptional performance on the AM broadcast and shortwave bands.
Cabinet: The dark walnut cabinet is just beautiful. Gorgeous wood grain flows throughout the entire set. A large wrap around grill adds a nice Art Deco appeal while allowing for optimal sound from the speaker. It all comes together magnificently with the large, lighted black dial surrounded by all the pushbuttons and gold escutcheon. What a terrific sight, that Zenith was so famous for capturing. Dark walnut tones and jet black trim finish the cabinet off perfectly. This highly sought after beauty is sure to turn heads no matter which room in the home or office you choose to display it in.
The Cabinet’s Finish & Restoration Process: Our Radio cabinets undergo a vigorous restoration process. Our goal is to maintain the natural beauty of the wood and grain, while providing a deep luster and shine. We achieve this by removing all the old and worn lacquers and stains. We then sand the cabinet with fine grit pads down to the original bare wood. All nicks, chips, and blemishes are filled and/or blended. Any loose veneer is re-secured. New stains and sealers are applied by hand. We continue by using a minimum 12 coats of Mohawk brand lacquers and toners. We use a nitrocellulose piano type lacquer which is applied through a professional HVLP turbine spray system in a climate controlled room. Nitrocellulose lacquer is very thin. We also apply very thin coats. This allows the lacquer to seep into the grain and not cover it up. A 1000, 2000, & 4000 grit wet sanding follows every third coat. The cabinet is finished off with a three step polishing process ending with an Oz glaze rub. Many hours of work are put into the radios, but as you can see, the final outcome is a beautiful, natural looking cabinet with gorgeous luster& shine. Our radios are a great piece of history that come to you ready to proudly display, as well as listen to, in any room of the home or office.
Dial/Knobs: Just look at that spectacular black dial surrounded by numerous tone and automatic tuning controls. Quite the ‘eye catcher’! It is illuminated by two new dial lamps and displays all the station frequencies for three separate bands, as well as country names, for shortwave reference. White arrow indicators, located on the bottom of the dial, lets you know which band you are currently listening to. All numbers and letters on the dial are legible and show little signs of wear. The shiny sleek ‘Z’ pointer moves nice and smooth across the dial. A large gold escutcheon surrounds the dial and houses various tone controls to the right, as well as automatic tuning controls to the left. The dial glass is clear and free from any chips, breaks, or cracks. All knobs are in excellent shape and work as follows; band switch, manual tuning, on/off and volume.
Electronics/Chassis: All tubes in the 7 tube chassis were tested with any weak tubes being replaced. All caps, filters, and resistors were checked and replaced as needed. All brittle or bare wiring was replaced or re-insulated. The chassis has been cleaned, lubed, and re-aligned for optimal performance. The radio performs exceptionally well on the AM broadcast and shortwave bands. I am able to pick up many stations, near and far, with deep rich tone and plenty of volume. A 30 day warranty is included on all the tubes, capacitors, resistors, and filters. Due to age and design of some antique radio parts we cannot warranty transformers, coils, and speakers. However, if at any time these parts would happen to fail, we will assist in repairing or replacing the defective part at minimal cost.
