PostSubject: What's the widest tabletop radio?   Fri Oct 22, 2010 12:23 am

I have a nice, 8 foot long cabinet with a deep shelf along the top that's perfect for displaying some tabletop radios. There's 5 on it right now - a Coronado, a Radiola 18, a Silvertone, Gilfillan and a Grundig-Majestic.

For novelty's sake, I'd like to put as few enormous table-top radios as possible. The wider the better.

I'd say I could fit 3 Radiola 18s with about 6 inches between each of them on the top. Are there any wider? Ideally, it would be 1 or 2 really long low radios. External speakers OK.

Lenghtwise, AK breadboards http://www.radioatticarchives.com/radio.htm?radio=9389 and Neutrowounds http://www.radioatticarchives.com/radio.htm?radio=1897 are probably the most commonly known. I'm sure there are more early radio sets that will make the list.

Same as my Radiola 18!
I have a Grundig 2053 that's about 23", the second largest one I have up there.

I bet this is impossible to find, but that would basically be exactly what I want.

Those breadboard sets are beautiful, and I see them for sale occasionally. Might have to keep my eyes out for one of those.

My 1925 Federal 110 cabinet measures 32 1/2 inches wide. It must weigh at least 70 pounds.
