Some seemingly innocent and very cool, but actually pretty dangerous, like this Hallicrafters S-38E I picked up from my neighbor’s curb.
It was working but for the tuning dial, so I opened it up and tightened the strings that connect the knob to the indicator and the tuner. That is working now, but the danger described in the link above encourages me to give the radio to anyone who cares to make the modifications described in the link (or operate the radio while it is plugged into an isolation transformer, which I don’t have but maybe you do). I don’t trust myself with it. For instance, I now know that using it near the sink is a bad idea (even if there is no water in the sink) as the sink’s connection to cold water pipes could make the stainless steel sink a connection to ground. Read the link and you’ll see why this could be a big problem.
Cold winds are blowing outside and I need lunch. I’ll say goodbye. I hope you had a great weekend, too!
