I really like the simple lines on this unit.

Mel and I hit Second Sunday last weekend and didn’t find much till we stumbled across this great unit our friend Dennis was selling. He works in construction and said he got this out of one of those big houses in S.F., he said it was in the basement and he purchased it from the original owner. I liked the cabinet and the look of the unit a lot but we went crazy for it when I noticed a small stencil next to the record player it said…

The mark of quality

I have been wanting one of these fold out units for a long time and this was the perfect set up.

Tell me that isn’t cool!

This unit is known as a Hoffman B1000 and was produced in 1947 by Hoffman Radio Corp.; Los Angeles, California. It’s has broadcast bands plus 2 Short Wave bands. It has a record player on the opposite side.

The cabinet will need to be refinished. There are many scratches and scuffs from years of use. This radio appears to be complete with all the knobs and parts.  The fabric on the front seems to be in great shape.

I need to find replacement water slide stencils to replace the ones that are rubbed off.

I will need to get this over to Louis at Stereo Advisor to get it running well again. It looks like it has sat for a while. This unit will look great with our Brown-Saltman desk and chair that I am almost done refinishing (Thanks Vic!). The chair is over at Bill’s from B&T Upholstery getting redone. Once it is complete I will make sure to blog about it. We are excited to see how it will all turn out.
