Project Information

It has been forgotten in a dark basement being devoured by termites and cockroaches. Some parts like feet, front grid I managed to reuse maintaining the maximum originality as possible. The cabinet was complete remade with plywood and finished with 2 coats of varnish. This radiogram has been made by Frahm (a Brazilian company founded by a German immigrant) in the 70s. It has a turntable and an old AM / OC / OT radio (no FM).

Some pictures before restoration:

Kinda nasty inside! Did you clean up the electronics at all?

The casework restore looks top notch, just like a 1970's home decor magazine photo spread 8^)
Very nice work!

Unfortunatly I don't have the necessary knownlgment to restore the electronics part. The radio works fine without any restriction. He sounds like a 50 year old radiogram. :) Not so good like the high end equipment that we have these days, but it's fine.
Turntable needs to be repair, I will find help with a friend that knows electronic, he will try to fix it next week.
