Garod 6AU-1 Tabletop Radio - RF Cafe

Garod 6AU-1 tabletop radio, Bakelite case, seen on eBay (here is the Radio Museum page w/more info). 

Garod 6BU-1A radio - RF CafeFor many years, I have been scanning and posting schematics & parts lists for vintage radios like this Garod 6AU−1 tabletop model. When possible I run OCR (optical character recognition) on them to separate the textual content. The Garod  6AU−1 is very popular amongst collectors because of its colorful Bakelite case, and well-preserved or reconditioned instances often sell for many hundreds of dollars. The similar model 6BU-1A was a more traditional brown color and had the dial mechanics at the bottom of the cover. There are still many people who restore and service these vintage radios, and often it can be difficult or impossible to find schematics and/or tuning information. I keep a running list of all data sheets to facilitate a search (see below).

Radio Service Data Sheets

These schematics, tuning instructions, and other data are reproduced from my collection of vintage radio and electronics magazines. As back in the era, similar schematic and service info was available for purchase from sources such as SAMS Photofacts, but these printings were a no-cost bonus for readers. There are 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
