Westinghouse "columaire" radio?
Hi all, Westinghouse made a very narrow console radio (approx. 13" wide) with a clock in the top of it. The one I have has no clock. It's about 4' high. Speaker is mounted upside down on the top of it with a lattice grill on top. 3 wood knobs. I think it is a WR-12 but not sure. No paperwork remains on the radio. The bottom of the radio has nothing in it-it's all frame. Don't have the tube layout but will get it if necessary. Will pull the grids caps and shields to find out. Any help would be appreciated-Kenny Kidd
I believe your radio may be a WR-8 instead of a WR-12:
H i Its a WR12 Columair Jr . grandfather clock shape without the clock. Center front window dial top speaker . bunis book #4 page # 229 Kenny
The chassis in that set is the RCA R-9. Any of the Westinghouse Columnaire sets are good radios.
The WR-i2 was a later set, possibly 1 year later. The WR-8 and WR-8R used an RCA Radiola 82 chassis. There is also a WR-15, which has a clock.
Hi Doug The reason i told Kenny this is i sold him the radio. I had one with the clock in it. It was about 6 feet high this one is i believe 4 feet high without the clock. and doesnt have the corner molding like the clock radio . Yes they are very nice radios. Thanks We are in diferent states but only 8 miles from eack other. Kenny
