Push-back hookup wire and solder are not furnished with this kit. If the colors of lead wire as shown in the pictorial are followed, the following approximate amounts of wire will be required:

Brown 5 feet

Black 3l/2 feet

Red 2Vi feet

Green 3 feet

Blue 1 foot

Orange 5 inches

White 4'/2 feet

If these colors are not available and a single color must be used, a total of 20 feet of wire will be required.

Cotton covered solid #22 push-back wire is recommended except for the white wire, which should be #20.

A good grade of rosin core wire solder is recommended. Avoid excessive use of solder, applying sufficient heat to the joint to permit the solder to flow smoothly at the joint.

Wire the kit as shown in the pictorial diagram, placing components and wiring exactly as shown. Note the use of twisted wires in the filament circuit, audio leads, AC line circuits, and power transformer. It is recommended that the filament and power supply wiring be done first.

Note that the shielded wire from the phono input jack is pulled straight across the chassis and the shield soldered to the ground end of the volume control; the shield extends nearly to the phono switch but does not connect to it.

Also note that the wires to the AC switch are shielded for a part of their length with a piece of braided shielding slipped over the twisted wire and soldered to the two ground lugs, as shown.

Be sure to connect the striped end (ground end) of paper by-pass condensers to ground.

Observe the color code used in the pictorial as an aid to accurate wiring

After completing all connections, the wiring should be very carefully checked to make sure that no errors were made or wires omitted.

String the dial as shown. With the condenser plates fully meshed, slip the pointer so that it coincides with the left hand dial scale line, and then securely clamp the pointer on the cord.
