Just acquired this 38-1 chassis w/ some of the tubes. Are these the correct functions for knobs?
bottom left phono/radio, etc. bottom center on/off bottom right volume?
I assume the lever is the band switch and the center knob manual tuning.

In pretty nice shape with a perfect dial.

On the left is "on-off-tone" switch, the center one is magnetic tuning on off, the right one is volume. Magnetic tuning is AFC basically.

nice radios but that vernier usually needs to be degreased and relubed and its a bitch to get at behind the other auto tuning crap. If you take any of that off be SURE to note the order of every little bit. Make notes.
