K1SVC Hallicrafters S-40 Restoration – Part 1

We take on another Hallicrafters restoration.  This time an S-40.  Most of the restoration will be cosmetic on this one, but we will have to check some resistors and replace some electrolytics.

This video gives an overview of the condition of the unit and I also show a S-40B that we will be working on at the same time.
